The number one question I get asked most often by travelers is, “When is the best time to visit Kauai?” I always have a difficult time answering this question. My first impulse is to say anytime, but I realize this response is not helpful. Although we do not have the traditional seasons that much of the country experiences, we do have changes throughout the year that could make a difference as to when you make your trip to Paradise.

Weather, animal migrations, crowds and airline prices are all factors that should be considered when deciding the best time to visit Kauai. And, of course, it depends on what you want. For example, if you want to see the humpback whales, then November to April is your best bet. If a boat ride down the Na Pali coast is a priority, months when the swells die down (April to October) are a must. Hikers may want drier weather.
