Hanapepe is called "Kauai's Biggest Little Town." It's a small, tranquil town that sits along the river at the foot of the Hanapepe Valley. Rustic and charming, this laid back town was once one of the island's largest cities. It began in the mid-1800s when Chinese rice farmers harvested the valley. Soon after, family stores were opened to accommodate the workers, and it wasn't long before larger businesses were drawn to the area and Hanapepe became the commerce and entertainment hub of the area. Old Historic Hanapepe has been the site of several movies, including "The Thornbirds," and "Flight of the Intruder." It's historic buildings and rustic storefronts today are home to a variety of art galleries and quaint shops. The community is recognized as an "Art Colony," and has more galleries than any other town on Kauai. Hanapepe also hosts an Art Night Open House every Friday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. Within minutes you can be at the south side and west side beaches and swimming, surfing and snorkeling. Other recreational activities in the Hanapepe area include hiking, mountain biking and fishing.

Hanapepe Weather & Climate

Southwestern Kauai is the sunniest, driest part of the island. The northern part around Hanalei is the rainiest. With warm, gentle temperatures and cooling tradewinds, the climate on Kauai is never too hot or oppressive. The biggest contrast in the weather is the difference in the amount of rainfall between the rainy season of winter (October through March,) and the dry summer season (April through September.) There is very little variation in temperature, except in higher elevations where it is cooler year round. Overall, you will find more variation in temperature with location, rather than season. On the island of Kauai, the waters are calmer in the summers and the tradewinds blow more frequently. Storms such as hurricanes are infrequent, although the threat does exist.
