Weather and Ocean Conditions
The climate in Spreckelsville is relatively mild all year around with summer temperatures averaging around 80 F and sometimes rising into the low 90s with tropical trade winds providing a comfortable, cooling effect. Winter temperatures average in the 70s. Casual and beach attire is appropriate for most activities though if you are visiting higher elevation areas bring something warmer as the temperatures may be significantly cooler. The winter months typically bring more rain on the north and east shores than on the west and south shores, which keeps everything lush and green. It's often best to enjoy beaches during the morning hours as the trade winds may blow a bit stronger in the afternoon. However most afternoons are nice as well for water as well as land activities.

Winter months can bring big surf on exposed northern shorelines while summer conditions are often very calm. Like all Hawaii beaches, conditions can change at any time of year and you should always use caution before entering the ocean. Check with lifeguards before going in the water to learn about the safest areas to swim and enjoy the water activities you choose.

is named after California sugar refiner Claus Spreckels, a German who came to
Hawaii seeking to make a fortune. When the 1876 Reciprocity Treaty signed by
the Hawaiian monarchy allowed Hawaiian sugar to come to the US duty free,
Spreckels came to Hawaii and bought up half the sugarcane crop anticipating a
jump in prices. By
1882 Spreckels owned 41,000 acres in the Wailuku region. East of Wailuku he
built the world's biggest and most
modern sugar factory at a cost of $4 million. Spreckels also owned a refinery
in San Francisco and the Oceanic Steamship Company which transported the sugar.
