Koloa is located on the sunny southern coast of Kauai between Lawai and Poipu. To reach Koloa, take Highway 520 on Kauai's east side and drive through the Tree Tunnel, where swamp mahogany and eucalyptus trees have grown to form a tunnel over the road. A drive through the tunnel will bring you to Old Town Koloa's gift shops, restaurants and art galleries. Over twenty shops have been opened in beautifully restored buildings. Koloa was established in 1835 and was Hawaii's first productive sugar plantation town. It quickly became the commercial hub for the island and many of the buildings date back to that time. Other nearby points of interest includes Nahumaalo Point, Waita Reservoir, and the Atlantis Gallery of Kauai. Koloa is also the birthplace of Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole in 1871. There is a small two and a half-acre park marking his birthplace just a couple of miles south of town. Prince Kalanianaole is remembered for his work to benefit the Hawaiian people, and he was a Republican delegate to Congress from 1902 - 1922. For outdoor recreation, Koloa is near Poipu Beach Park, at the southern most tip of Kauai. You will find all types of activities here, and the beaches in this area are favorites for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Koloa 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.
