Technically, Kapolei is not a city; it includes the communities Barber's Point, Campbell Industrial Park, Ko Olina, and Makakilo. Located on the western coast of Oahu, Kapolei is an ideal spot for vacationers looking to unwind amidst the stunning nature of Hawaii while being close to some of the top attractions of the island.

When to Visit Kapolei, HI

Oahu is the largest Hawaiian island in terms of population. Because the largest metropolitan area, Honolulu, is nearby, and the island boasts all the things that attract tourists (such as beaches, resorts, and the city), it's also the busiest Hawaiian island. You should keep in this in mind when planning your trip.

The low and high seasons in Hawaii are a bit counterintuitive. The peak tourist season is in the winter months since visitors flee cold weather elsewhere to be where it's warm for most of the year. That means December through March brings the biggest crowds — and the highest prices on flights and hotels.

Fall and spring mark the least crowded times in Hawaii. Try to book your trip between April and mid-June or September to mid-December to lock in the best deals while still enjoying Hawaii's gorgeous weather. One big exception is the last week in April. Three Japanese holidays occur during this "Golden Week," and the result is an influx of tourists from Japan. If you're booking in that week, make sure you do it far in advance so you don't miss out on getting the hotel you want. Though summer is the low season, it's still a popular time to travel overall. You'll find better deals in the fall and spring.

If you're booking with the weather in mind, rest easy knowing that Oahu boasts fairly consistent weather. You'll find year-round average high temperatures between 75 and 85 degrees. April through October sees wetter weather than November through March, but the tropical climate means you'll almost always have humidity and warm temperatures.

The Kapolei area offers a big bonus for travelers looking for clear weather. The southwest coast of Oahu, especially the Ko Olina area, gets lots of sun.

If you're coming to Kapolei with a plan to surf, remember that the best waves are in the winter, when the wind gets stronger. December through mid-February is the ideal time for surfers, and you might also catch humpback whale migrations.

Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is a luxury option perfect for families. The rooms feature iPod docking stations and refrigerators, along with private furnished balconies or patios. Rainfall shower heads and deep soaking bathtubs add to the comfort. An area shuttle helps you reach nearby destinations, but there's also plenty to do without ever leaving the resort.

Things to Do Around Kapolei, HI

The natural wonders that surround you make any trip to Kapolei something to remember. When you're looking for a retreat open to the public, head to Paradise Cove Beach.

Just to the west of Kapolei are the Ko Olina Lagoons, a series of sandy beaches surrounding four man-made lagoons, Hanu, Kolola, Naia, and Ulu. Perfect spots for snorkeling, the lagoons are also safe places for children to swim as they have lifeguards on duty during the day. The sand here comes from Lanai, a neighboring island. There's also a rock wall that was built to create a shelter from the open ocean. The lagoons hold a reputation as some of the most relaxing beach getaways on Oahu, so you'll want to build some time here into your stay.

Make sure you save time for golf when you stay in Kapolei. The Ko Olina Golf Club is not even five miles from Kapolei, and anyone who loves golf should not miss it. The championship course was designed by famous golf course architect Ted Robinson and has been listed as a top resort course by Golf Digest.
