National Tropical Botanical Gardens and you’ll understand why they call Kauai the “Garden Island.” Do remember to bring Bug spray to spray your legs if you are planning to wear shorts and visit any of the gardens.

An interesting aspect about Kauai’s rainfall is that most if the Hawaiian Island precipitation falls overnight. Even if a rain shower should interrupt your day, it rarely lasts more than a few minutes before the glorious sunshine breaks through again. You may even be treated to a rainbow afterwards.

Frequently asked Hawaii weather questions:
When is the best time to go to Kauai?
Anytime is a great time to go to Kauai. We’ve been to Kauai several times in every season and enjoyed wonderful weather. For the best weather and prices, we recommend visiting Hawaii in mid/late April, May, early/mid June, September and October.
Is Kauai cold in the winter?
We don’t think it’s cold. Look at the above weather charts which indicate that even in the coldest months, the average daytime high temperatures average between 78 and 82F, which is quite pleasant. You’d have to visit Kauai during a particularly odd weather pattern to be cold in Kauai. During winter months, you might want to have a light sweater to wear in the evenings, but during the daytime, you’ll most likely enjoy “bikini weather” while playing in the ocean.
Is Kauai’s weather humid?
The degree to which a person feels humidity depends on the humidity of the climate where they live. For example, someone who lives in the humid southeastern United States probably won’t notice much humidity, while someone from an arid southwestern state may take more notice in the humidity.
If the trade winds are blowing, which they normally do, the breeze helps to keep you comfortable in the humid environment.
Do I need to be concerned about rain in Kauai during the winter months?
As previously mentioned, the north and east sides of the island tend to get more rain than the south and west sides of the islands. If you plan to stay on the south and west sides of the islands, you’ll likely minimize your chances of experiencing rain.
Is winter a good time to go to Kauai?
Are the northern Hawaiian Islands colder than the southern Hawaiian Islands?
There’s perhaps just a few degrees difference between the extremes, but nothing drastic. If you flew from one island to the other, you probably wouldn’t notice a difference. Review the above temperature charts for Kauai, the northernmost Hawaiian Island, to the Big Island, the southernmost Hawaiian Island for comparison. Note that there’s very little difference.
What’s the water temperature in Kauai? Can I swim in Kauai in the colder winter months?
You can swim in the ocean in Kauai throughout the year — even in winter months. The average ocean temperature for Kauai is 78F and ranges from a low of 76F to 81F.

Kauai Beaches can be exposed to strong waves, unpredictable conditions and rip currents. Use caution follow beach safety in and around Kauai waters.
Anahola Beach – Anahola Beach is a beautiful white sand fringed bay, with good swimming and decent snorkeling most of the year due to a protective outlying reef. Anahola Beach Park is located just south of Anahola Bay. This family friendly beach is tucked away and hidden from the main road. This secluded beach is an easy beach to drive up to and enjoy without having to carry your beach gear too far. From the shore you can see the beautiful mountains of Kalalea.
The Anahola Beach Park is manned by a County of Kauai lifeguard and offers good shade, a sandy beach, camping facilities and fun for all ages. This beach is popular among the locals and is crowded on the weekends with families picnicking and enjoying the beach.
The North end of the bay at the mouth of the Anahola River is another great beach for shelling, fishing from shore and photo opportunities. Use caution near the river-mouth for strong currents. There are no lifeguard stations at the river-mouth end of the bay. Get Directions to Anahola Beach
Anini Beach – There is no lifeguard posted at Anini Beach, but is still considered to be one of the safer beaches on Kauai’s North Shore during the summer months. Anini boasts the longest and widest fringing reef in the Hawaiian Islands and because of the unique conditions it usually has well protected waters and some of the most consistent conditions for water activities. Enjoy snorkeling, beach walks, picnicking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Anini beach is known to have strong currents in the channels and outside the protective reef. Always use caution especially during high surf. On windy days you are likely to see wind surfers out riding the waves.
Anini Beach is popular for camping and also a great beach for simply relaxing with a book, fishing from shore or paddle boarding above the lively reef. The deeper and clearer water can be enticing, but it is better to be cautious and stay closer to shore.
Anini Beach is usually less crowded than Poipu or Hanalei and is really quite breathtaking. The Beach Park has multiple campsites with permits, shade trees, picnic tables, pavilions, restrooms and showers. My wife and I went here on one of our trips and within a short time snorkeling we saw a sea turtle, some trumpet fish and several other type of fish while we were going across the reef.
