People always ask us, “When is the best time of year to visit Kauai?” That’s a trick question, because the answer is year-round! The climate here on Kauai is relatively stable all year long, so you’ll find that the temperatures in the winter are mild and comfortable, which makes it the perfect Kauai winter getaway spot. Come and explore some of our favorite island wonders this season.
Surfing Season and Water Adventures
While the weather remains relatively temperate during this itme of year, you’ll want to be careful swimming on some beaches, because Kauai winter is surf season. That means the ocean is wild with big swells! If you’re a surfer, this is the prime time to visit, or you can even watch the pros in the surf competitions.
For swimming, head to the reef-protected beaches. At gentler beaches like these, such as Poipu Beach and Koloa Landing, you’ll be protected from those winter waves, and you can have some fun in the turquoise tropical waters. These are great snorkeling spots year-round, and you can expect to see a plethora of vibrant ocean life shimmering beneath the surface. December through March is also the perfect time for whale watching, so make sure to grab a ticket for a whale watching tour. Taking a boat ride out to sea will also give you one of the best views you can possibly get of the island, so you’ll want to bring your camera along.
Kauai Winter Holiday Events
On top of all the island fun, you’ll find holiday extravaganzas while you’re here that will really get you in the spirit. Visit the Festival of Lights from December 6th to 28th, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and even on Christmas Eve. There’s nothing more magical than a stroll down a twinkling holiday lane in one of the most beautiful places on earth. You’ll also find such events as the Lights on Rice Christmas Parade on December 6th right by the Kauai Museum.
