Kauai Weather

Kauai’s Weather is Fantastic!

Kauai is paradise on earth, a perfect vacation destination. It has beautiful beaches, mountain peaks, crystal clear waters and fabulous weather. The island has a tropical weather climate making it lush and vibrant. Rain is needed to keep this island full of its amazing plant life, but it does not rain here as much as people would think. During the summer most of the rain showers occur at night which allows for optimal beach weather in the daytime. Sometimes rain showers do sweep through in the daytime, but they are usually just brief afternoon showers that come and go. Brief afternoon showers are great because they keep temperatures down and can often times bring vivid rainbows with them.
