Waiohinu is a quaint and historic Hawaiian village located in the Kau District of The Big Island, near South Point. The population of this tiny town is only about 300, but it offers shopping and supplies, a post office and restaurants. It's within easy distance of many of the Big Island's main attractions, including Volcanoes National Park, the Kona coffee tours, the green sand beaches of South Point and the black sand beach at Punalu'u. This picturesque little village lies in one of the most fascinating regions of the world, where within thirty minutes you can go from climates ranging from rainforest to desert. Hiking to the massive cliffs of South Point (which is the southernmost point in the United States) is a popular activity, where you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views. Swimming and snorkeling are allowed at the Point, although caution is strongly advised. Naalehu is one of the primary towns near Waiohinu and has shops and restaurants, a farmer's market, a historic village/park, art galleries and a museum. Other nearby points of interest include the Kau Forest Reserve, Kealakekua Bay (famous for its' snorkeling and diving) and the spot where infamous Captain Cook was killed. Waiohinu is just minutes away from fishing charters, windsurfing, kayaking, swimming with the dolphins and many other purely Hawaiian adventures.

Waiohinu Weather & Climate

Hawaii is in the tropics, with a climate that is mild throughout the year with moderate humidity, persistent northeasterly trade winds, very few severe storms and rainfall that varies greatly depending on location. The mountains are a major influence on the weather on The Big Island. The eastern "windward" side receives significantly more rain than the drier "leeward" side to the west and it is fairly consistent in amount throughout the year. The mountains obstruct and accelerate the flow of the warm, moist air from the ocean. As the air moves up and over the slopes and mountains, clouds form and rainfall is much greater. When the air descends over the leeward areas, it tends to be sunny and dry. These endless peaks, valleys, ridges and broad slopes are what gives Hawaii a climate that is different from the surrounding ocean, as well as a variety of differences within the islands themselves. These differences would not exist if the islands were flat and the same size.
