Weather and Ocean Conditions
Waipouli weather is very nice throughout the year with temperatures usually in the mid to high 70s F., slightly warmer during the summer months and a bit cooler during the winter months, with night time temperatures dropping five to ten degrees. Hawaii's northeast trending trade winds provide a pleasant cooling effect. Kauai's north and east shores see more rain and slightly cooler temperatures than the south and west shores.
Ocean conditions vary through the seasons with Waipouli and other east shore beaches typically quite calm during the summer months and nice for snorkeling, swimming and enjoying the beach. Winter months bring intermittent north swells to the Hawaiian Islands which can create high surf and strong currents. South swells sometimes arrive during the summer months bringing bigger waves mainly along southern coastlines. Some beaches are more protected from the open sea than others, and ocean conditions can change from day to day. For water activities it is best to visit lifeguarded beaches and check with lifeguards about the safest places for the ocean activities you choose.
