Windy Beaches on Kauai???

Jump to last reply

Until the big hurricane in the early 1980s destroyed the unit we used to rent at Kiahuna we liked to go to Kauai for the beaches. After that we found a place in Kihei on Maui which we liked a lot. Unfortunately, the closest beaches to us were the Kamaole Beach Parks and we discovered that the wind always seemed to come up around 11 a.m. which made them undesirable. Generally speaking we far prefer the Kihei area to the the Lahaina/Kaanapali area.

After a 30-year absence we're thinking of going back to Kauai but have no recollection of wind patterns on the beaches. We would appreciate some feedback as to what we could expect to find in January or February were we to go back to Kiahuna and area. Also, what should we expect to find by way of wind along the Lihue and upward coast?While we really enjoy Hanalei we find it is too far removed for us to spend two weeks there.

Thanks for your input. Any suggestions regarding rental houses or condos on the beach for January or February would also be appreciated.

Mahalo,
BigBlue
