Lawai is on the sunny south side of the island of Kauai, where a walk to a waterfall or a stroll through a tropical forest reserve is all possible. Lawai Beach is a beautiful, white sand beach that is good for swimming and snorkeling. The whole island of Kauai is small enough (only 32 miles in diameter) to easily be able to visit all the major points of interest from your base at Lawai Beach. The lush north shore is just a short drive and includes the Napali Coast and the Kalalau Trail (popular with day hikers and overnight campers.) Other north side attractions include the Wet and Dry Caves of Haena, Hanalei Valley and Hanalei Bay, the Kilauea Lighthouse and Kalihiwai Falls and the golf courses of Princeville. Many consider Kauai Hawaii's most pristine island, and it is often called the "Garden Island" for its' cascading, flower strewn streams and swaying palm fringed beaches. There are ten golf courses located on the island, and other things to do include horseback riding, swimming and diving, fishing and birdwatching, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching tours and backcountry adventures.

Lawai 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.
