      We are going to Kauai in a few weeks. Ideally we would like to stay in a laid back place with a pool on a sandy beach, with surfing nearby. Any suggestions?

      Life on Kauai

      Kapaa Jan 22, 2014 at 3:20 PM

      So, there's a very rare job opening in my profession in a place called Kapa'a. I know nothing about life in a small town in Hawai'i. Anybody care to fill me in on the culture and quality of life in Kapa'a?
      I just reached the end of my tether with winter in New England.

      Thanks in advance.

      My mom and I are heading to Kauai for a snorkeling trip. We have been all over Jamaica and Costa Rica and really enjoy the cliff and rock snorkeling. Question is when is the best time and place in Kauai. We don't enjoy big cities and would love a small town that is not so commercial. Asking a lot in this question. lol.

    • Hotel Help

      Kauai Jul 15, 2013 at 10:24 AM

      I am traveling to Kauai at the end of July, I have a choice between two hotels and am not sure which is right for my family. I am traveling with my adult children, 21 & 23. We can stay at the Marriott Waioahi in Poipu in a 2 bedroom condo that will most likely face the parking lot or in an Oceanfront hotel room at The Kauai Beach Resort. I have heard that the Marriott is geared more towards young famiiies and will have a lot of kids running around, it is on Poipu beach but it is packed this time of year and it will look over a parking lot. But it is a 2 bed condo which is a plus. The Kauai Beach resort in Lihue has an oceanfront room with 2 beds and a roll away and seems a bit more for adults. I really like the view. Anyone know these 2 properties and could get a recommedation for a stay this time of year would be appreciated.

    • Kauai specific questions

      Kauai Mar 27, 2013 at 6:41 PM


      We will be returning to Kauai for a 5 day trip. We went 2 years ago and stayed 4 days, we didn't know much about the island at that time and are searching to plan our next trip better.

      On the first visit, we stayed in a hotel in Kapaa, we liked the area, being kind of central.

      On this visit, we are looking at condos (we will be 4), we have spotted some at Princeville, at first view it seems kind of far from Poipu and the Canyon... what do you guys think?

      To help you out, here's a list of things we are looking forward to do during our 5 day trip.

      - Waimea Canyon + hang out at Poipu beaches/area,
      - Kalalau trail
      - Kayak to Secret Falls
      - Snorkelling
      - Queen's bath
      - Hang out at beaches

      We did visit Kauai once and know our way around it, but are not so aware of the special places.

      So here are my specific questions :

      - Does the east/north (somewhat max 30 minutes from Princeville) of Kauai offer a good enough variety of beaches and snorkelling to cover 2-3 days, so that we do not have to run around the island for those activities?

      - Is there any special places that you would suggest (beaches, treks, waterfalls, activities) ?

      - Would Kauai be a nice place to learn to surf (similar to Waikiki), and if yes, where at?

      - Does Waimea Canyon offer treks that are spectacular? (In my opinion, simply looking at the Canyon from the observation areas is spectacular), are we missing out by just looking at it without walking right into it?

      - So Helicopter rides leave from the airport? Are you aware if you must book in advance, or are you able to get in just a few days prior?

      - Golf, how good is Kauai for golf? Any specific courses to recommand? I know golfing in Hawaii can be expensive, let's say something in the range of 40$ - 90$ for the round (not sure what those prices get you..)

      Thanks all,

    • Hard Hikes on Kauai

      Kauai Jun 29, 2012 at 11:53 AM

      Me and my wife are heading out there end of September and were looking for some fun hikes. We hike the 14ers here in colorado and we also rock climb as well. We want a couple of hikes that no offense the lazy out of shape tourists won't waddle there way on. Maybe hook up with a local to takes us on an adventure. Were staying in Princeville and it looks like there are some decent trails. The 11 mile hike we saw looks like a fun day trip. Long but well worth it! Any help from locals would be awesome!

      My family is traveling to Kauai in August (9 adults) and I'm trying to organize some activities for all of us to do together that don't have that "commercialized" feel. I've never been, and I really want to see the island as the natives get to see it, and use the outfitters that natives would recommend. The more adventurous the activity, the better! Does anyone have any recommendations or contacts on Kauai?

    • Questions for upcoming Kauai trip

      Kauai Jun 13, 2011 at 7:25 PM

      I'd like some info on a Hawaiian trip my family is planning. Unfortunately, the only time that we all have available is exactly when I normally would NOT want to go...around Christmas.

      Travelers include myself, my wife, and teenage son. I have tentatively planned for a 2 week trip, Dec. 19th departure and a Jan. 1st return.

      Kauai is my favorite island, we'll be there for most of the time, but we'd like to see one other island as well. I'm leaning toward the Big Island, as we are really interested in geology, and the combination of black sand beaches and lava flows sounded interesting, but I'm open to suggestions.

      Here's what we like: Wildlife, geology, hiking, beautiful scenery in general, photography, waterfalls, seeing any "real" Hawaii that we can.
      Here's what we're not really into: Overly-touristy spots, "nightlife", big cities, resorts, etc.

      We'll be staying at small rental shacks/houses as opposed to fancy hotels.

      We'll be flying out of NE Nevada, so maybe from Vegas or Portland, Oregon since we have family there. I have 110,000 Hawaiian Airline miles, so that will help a bit with tickets.
      We'll be renting a car while there.


      1) I can tweak our dates a bit, but not by much. As the dates stand, we're leaving on a Monday, and flying back on a Sunday. Are there better days for departures/arrivals?

      2) Flight options are either mainland - Kauai - Big Island - back to Kauai - mainland, or mainland - Kauai - Big Island - mainland. I'm still investigating prices, but there may be something I haven't considered about routes.

      3) Let me know if you think there's an island besides the Big Island that would be a better choice for island #2.

    • Will ocean be effected in June....

      Kauai Mar 15, 2011 at 4:27 PM

      We went to Poipu last year, mid-late June, and the ocean was too stirred up from winter to snorkel. The last two days it cleared enough that they gave an 'all clear'.

      I'm wondering if that may be even more of an issue this year in light of the tsumani in Japan. We're hoping to go back to Poipu this year, same approx. dates, but want to be sure snorkeling will be 'open' at Poipu.

      Has anyone heard if there will be long lasting effects on the Hawaii beaches?
