North-Shore Kauai is one of the most scenic places in the world. Here you will find miles of beautiful white sand beaches, lush rainforests and mountain waterfalls that empty into fern lined pools. The movies "South Pacific," "Six Days Seven Nights," and "Jurassic Park" were all filmed on Kauai's North Shore. There are numerous attractions in the area including the Na Pali Coast, Anini Beach, Hanalei Valley, Kilauea Lighthouse and Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. The North Coast is home to Princeville, the largest development on the island with world-class golf courses, restaurants, spas and shopping. The quaint town of Hanalei is also on Kauai's North Shore and is believed to be one of the earliest areas settled by ancient Pacific voyagers. You will find almost any type of outdoors activity in the area including swimming, snorkeling, hiking, boating, surfing, boogie-boarding, helicopter rides, kayaking excursions and more. Or, if you prefer, you can simply sit on one of the warm beaches and let the tropical tradewinds and ocean waves lull you to sleep. Eat in fine restaurants or small local cafes, shop for art and antiques, or visit a farmer's market and taste fresh fruit in season. It's all here on Kauai's spectacular North Shore.

North Shore Weather & Climate

Kauai is very diverse, with huge areas of tropical forest, deserted coast and green mountains. The northern part of the island is the rainiest, which helps create the lush, tropical, wild terrain and cascading waterfalls this island is known for. A typical weather forecast for Kauai is "morning rains, followed by sunny skies." As with many parts of Hawaii, Kauai's climate varies according to location. Mount Waialeale, near the center of the island, is known as the wettest spot on earth. The driest area on the island is the southwestern part. Kauai has the gentle temperatures typical of Hawaii year-round, with highs in the low 80s and lows in the 60s. Farther north and west than the other Hawaiian Islands, Kauai enjoys northerly trade winds year round. Severe storms, such as hurricanes, are rare on Kauai, but the possibility does exist.
