5 Reasons to Visit Kauai in the Summer
Kauai is a world-class vacation destination all year round, but there are certain advantages visitors can enjoy when visiting in the summer.
1. Calm Waters
Kauai’s waters are perfect for snorkeling, diving, and a wide variety of watersports. In the summertime, the waters are calmer, making some of these activities more enjoyable, especially for beginners. While catching a huge wave is not likely, the summer months are ideal for beginner surfers and body surfers. The calm waters make snorkeling and diving easier as well.
2. Dolphin Encounters
Kauai is home to thousands of spinner and bottlenose dolphins, and August is one of the best times to see these playful creatures. Get out on the water with a boat tour and watch for dolphin fins, or if you are lucky, you might see them dive in and out of the water. Alternatively, you might be able to spot them from the shore; our vacation rentals at Whalers Cove are great lookout spots for dolphins.
3. Gardens in Bloom
They do not call Kauai the “Garden Isle” for nothing; lush vegetation provides an abundance of green scenery to enjoy. With that background, it should be no surprise that Kauai is home to some of the finest and most diverse gardens in the world. During the summer months, these fabulous gardens, like Allerton Garden and McBryde Garden, are in full bloom, adding to the experience.
4. Festivals & Events
Summer is a busy time for festivals and events on Kauai. If you want to experience some of the island’s community and culture, we recommend attending an event while you visit during the summer. One of the best examples is Koloa Plantation Days, a 10-day event in July that celebrates Kauai’s plantation heritage with food, music, dance, costumes, and food.
5. Beautiful Weather
While Kauai’s weather is great throughout the year, it is near perfect in the summertime. The average high temperature on Kauai in the summer is 84 degrees, which is perfect for all of the wonderful outdoor activities for which the island is known. Whether you want to take a refreshing dip, go on an adventurous hike, or simply lounge about and soak up the sun, Kauai’s summer weather has you covered.
