When the British explorer Captain Cook arrived in the Hawaiian Islands at the end of the 18th century his crew reportedly remarked that they found paradise, and the big island of Kamuela is truly paradise unspoiled. Many of the locals will tell you that there is no such thing as a bad time to come.

The weather in the summer is warm with reasonable humidity. There may be an afternoon shower or two, but this is a small price to pay for such scenic beauty, and a passing shower just makes for a good time to prepare for even more sun and surf.

The daytime temperatures are in the upper 80s during the summer, and a bit cooler in the “winter” months, but you’d need a calendar to know it was truly winter! The rainy season is from December until March, and during this time the rain can be heavy at times, and within the interior of the island is some of the rainiest land in the entire United States. This just further makes for a nice tropical rainforest.

On the beach year round there is still enough sunshine that whenever you arrive, you’re not likely going to want to leave.
