Perfect Winter Weather on Kauai

How would you feel this time of year if you could say, “Yeah, we had a couple of weeks of blustery rain and wind and the temperatures fell into the low seventies, but the last couple weeks have given us perfect winter weather. The wind has died down, the skies are clear as a bell and the ocean is crystal clear and calm at least on the South Shore.” I’ll tell you how I feel, SPOILED! The last week of December and the first week of January have been as close to perfect as it can get.

So what’s the downfall of perfect weather?

Well, the dishes are piled in the sink, I need to do the laundry, the car is covered in dirt and the fridge is empty because I don’t ever want to waste a perfect day. Instead of doing my chores, I have taken my son snorkeling at Lydgate Park, gone on a hike, played Mini Golf in Kilauea, gone tide-pooling at Salt Pond Beach Park, had a beach day at Baby Beach and took my son on a play date at Poipu Beach Park.

Want to hear how SPOILED we actually are on Kauai. Yesterday, I took my son snorkeling and we both wore wetsuits because the 75 degree water was too cold for us. Of course we were the only ones on the entire beach wearing wetsuits. We’ve been here so long that our blood has thinned. Everyone else was sporting bikinis and surf trunks and soaking up the beautiful Kauai weather. Where else can you enjoy these kinds of days on the beach in your bikini in January.

So, if you are looking for a good place to thaw out in January, this is it. The beach is always a great place to be on Kauai, but Kauai has a ton of other attractions and activities that will help you take advantage of the perfect winter weather.
