Waimea- is located on the western side of the island of Kauai, where the small village of Waimea rests along its' shores. This sleepy little town was once the original capital of Kauai, but seems to have been lost in time. It's laid back and quiet, and doesn't have a lot of action, but if you're looking for the real Hawaii away from the crowds, noise and large resorts, Waimea Bay will fit the bill. This region is home to one of Hawaii's most beautiful natural wonders - Waimea Canyon (called the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific.) Other nearby attractions include Kokee State Park and Salt Pond Beach Park, which is a great place to swim and snorkel. A few miles south of Waimea Bay is the historic town of Hanapepe. This rustic town was once one of the island's largest towns and it's so picturesque that it was used in the mini-series, "The Thornbirds." It has shops selling local arts and crafts, art galleries, and is reportedly home to one of Kauai's best restaurants. Recreational activities near Waimea Bay include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and surfing, swimming and snorkeling.

Waimea 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.
