When is the best time of year to visit Kauai?
The obvious answer is anytime, and all the time – however, we understand that most visitors need to decide on when to take their vacation.
The most popular time to visit Hawaii, with its average temperature at 78 degrees, is when the rest of the United States weather is junk. Hotels are booked to capacity from mid-December to April, with the last two weeks of December being the most popular travel time, and the spring break season during March and April. Summer break is also a popular time too, and Hawaii is usually pretty busy from June to August.
There really are only two seasons in Hawaii, Winter and Summer. We don’t measure our seasons with changes in the leaves or temperature in the air, instead, we use the direction of the ocean swells to differentiate. In the winter, the waves are big on the north and west sides of the island, and in the summer, the waves are big on the east and south sides of the island. When the waves are not big, it means that the water is calm and safe for snorkeling and swimming.
Our company, Na Pali Experience, only operates in the summer (May-Sept) because of the calm waters around Na Pali. In the summer, we can explore sea caves and swim safely at Nualolo during our catamaran tour. During the winter months, the sea caves are inaccessible and the water is too rough to swim in on the north shore. Seeing Na Pali coast is the number 1 rated activity on
Considering all of this, our recommendation for the best time to visit Kauai is May and Sept. The weather is usually perfect, it’s not too crowded, and most importantly, Na Pali Experience is open for business!
