Weather in Febuary

Planning a trip in Feb 2011, thinking of staying at Turtle Bay but wondering if the ocean is too rough for swimming at that time of year and how much rain can we expect. We are beach lovers and love to swim so if the ocean is too rough it may be a problem.

The largest surf will probably be over by then but there is no way of telling how it will be in Feb. That's like asking when it's going to snow in Buffalo!! Everyone knows it will but when? Personally I wouldn't stay up there in Feb. but I'm sure lots of folks do. Just a bit rainier than I would like and no guarantee you will be able to get into the water unlike the south shore of Waikiki!!

Kuilima Cove at Turtle Bay Resort is protected & is safe all year except when there is really huge surf. Besides being a cove, there is also a breakwall there.

Turtle Bay Resort is at the northern most part of the island.

It is fairly dry at the resort, while a mile or so away in the mountains, it rains much more.


So no problem staying at Turtle Bay because of the rain.

However, it is almost an hour from Turtle Bay to Honolulu/Waikiki. So if you plan to spend a lot of time seeing the attractions in Honolulu/Waikiki, then maybe Kailua would be better.

Lots of Oahu info:
