Kapaa is located on the eastern coast of the island of Kauai between Kealia and Wailua. This historical plantation town has streets lined with quaint shops and delicious restaurants, and is a great place to view the artistry of the local people and learn more about their culture. Kapaa sits within the Kawaihau district, which is one of the largest districts on the island of Kauai. This prime location offers all kinds of sightseeing and recreational opportunities for visitors. A must see while visiting Kapaa is the Coconut Marketplace, Kauai's largest outdoor bazaar. This open-air marketplace has everything from clothing and accessories to fresh fruits and tropical silk flowers. Unique gifts for everyone can be found at the Marketplace. The town of Kapaa is home to the Kauai Children's Discovery Museum, The Kauai Center of Hawaii Arts & Culture and numerous art museums and galleries. Historical walking tours are also available in Kapaa Town. Just minutes away and you are in the majestic Makaleha Mountains with its cascading waterfalls, rainbows and mountain streams. Beautiful Opaekaa Falls is approximately 2 miles from Kapaa and across from the falls is a prime view of the sacred Wailua River. All of this, plus nearby beaches with swimming, snorkeling, boating and surfing makes Kapaa Town an ideal vacation spot.

Kapaa Weather & Climate

Kauai's climate is tropical, and it consists of many distinct microclimates, including sunny dry areas, lush river valleys, temperate foothills and high mountain rain forests. For half of the year, temperatures on Kauai range in the 70s, with winter nighttime lows in the 60s. Summers on Kauai bring daytime temperatures in the mid-80s and nighttime lows in the 70s. Even in the middle of Kauai's summer, the nearly constant gentle trade winds create a cool balmy climate instead of the oppressive heat common to other tropical destinations. The northern part of the island is the rainiest and the southwestern part is the driest, with variations in between. However, even in the rainiest regions, a typical forecast is "morning rains, followed by sunny skies the rest of the day."
