Big Island Weather Maps & Information to Help in Your Purchase of Hawaii Real Estate

Aloha Pumehana! I was looking for a sustainable property for a client and shared these maps to help her understand the weather patterns of the areas she was interested in. I hope this information helps you in your decision making process when buying real estate on the Big Island.

Solar Map

When buying real estate on the Big Island, most people buy property because of the weather patterns they would ultimately like to experience, according to their lifestyle. Since there are at least 12 different climate zones on the Big Island, you have a variety of lifestyles to choose from!

Rainfall Map

Many people ask about the rainfall for certain areas. In the Kona Coffee Belt for instance, the coffee thrives on sunny mornings, clouds by noon, and a light sprinkle at night. It’s also perfect weather for outdoor sports in the morning and coffee picking weather in the afternoon! 

If you are the athletic type, ocean sports are great all day long, all year round in Kona, and if you like it cool in the mornings, and turning on the fireplace at night, we have higher elevations of elegant and affordable homes to choose from all over the island as well! Whatever your favorite lifestyle is, we have the perfect weather for you!

Wind Speed Map

Above is a basic map of the wind power in Hawaii. The Big Island has wind farms in a variety of places and it’s best to make use of this type of free energy! For those subdivisions that have restrictive covenants, you may want to design your windmill to be aesthetically pleasing and as natural looking at possible…to blend into the environment. I visualized solar/wind powered systems in the shape of a beautiful fan palm tree lining the driveway!

More Information

When you are interested in finding your dream home with the perfect weather you desire, I would be happy to send you information on any properties on the Big Island, just give me a call or text me. Prices are adjusting and it’s a great time to buy Hawaii real estate, especially for these times! 

If you would like a Current Market Analysis (CMA) for any area, please let me know! I can connect you with the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) to receive all properties available that fit your specific needs! And you are welcomed to read my blogs for more information on Hawaii real estate!

Blessings & Mahalo for your time~

Thank you, Claire! Hawaii includes 10 of the 12 climate zones, it is definitely more diverse than most people think. I’ve just learned something I did not know… the east side of the island has a dry and a wet side. The dry season is called Ku, which is March thru September. And the wet season is called Lono, and it lasts from October thru February.

Just curious, what areas are the most fertile, in terms of the abundance of fruit?

And, what subdivisions are the coolest, in terms of temperature, year round?

Thank you.

Aloha Rudy, thanks for your questions! The most fertile areas are in Hilo and East Hawaii where you’ll have 160+ inches of rain per year in certain areas there. In terms of fruit, it depends on what kind of fruit, but it seems everywhere in the tropics has a fruit of some kind growing- banana, papaya, mango, pineapples can grow in dryer areas- dragonfruit, citrus, avocados, tomatoes grow well in the 900-1600ft cooler elevations- and the more exotic fruits like rambutan, seem to grow better in the wetter regions.

As far as temperatures year round- higher up the slopes of any mountain here are much cooler, but you might want a nice ocean view, and most of the subdivisions in West Hawaii offer that. Makalei Estates are 3-Acre agricultural parcels with great views, and we have subdivisions in & around the Kona Palisades area that offer average 1500sf Homes on 10,000+sf lots. Were you looking for a cooler subdivision where you could have some fruit & edibles in your yard, or something more like a small farm? Also, is having an ocean view or sunset view important to you..

I would be happy to start a search of properties that fit your needs Rudy- will keep in touch shortly with what’s available on the market..~ Mahalo for the questions!
