Kauai Travel Information

When to Go

It is usually warmer and dryer along the south shore and west side of the island. Considering Mt. Waialeale in Kauai’s interior is thought to be the wettest spot on earth with an annual rainfall of 460 inches, the rain on the rest of the island is pretty mild. You can expect light showers along the north shore and eastside on most days, followed by lots of sunshine and vivid rainbows. Rainfall usually increases the further inland you go. Temperatures range in the mid-80s F during the summer months and high 70s from January through March.
