Trip Report A dreamy week on Kauai with three generations

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, just wanted to give you a very brief report on our family trip to Kauai. We went to celebrate a milestone anniversary for my husband's parents - there were 10 of us (2 grandparents, 4 40-somethings, 4 teens). We decided to stay on the north shore despite the risk of wet weather and big surf - great choice, I LOVED this part of the island. Stunningly beautiful and very low key. Hanalei is super charming and relatively unspoiled.

We rented a house overlooking Kalihiwai Bay - gorgeous views and we were able to watch whales spouting and breaching out in the water. We had a couple of days with some rain and wind but we also had several perfect, calm sunny days. Most of the time we had our pick of beautiful beaches; only on the first and last days were we unable to swim at Tunnels/Ke'e. Loved the beach at Kalihiwai - the waves were great gentle rollers, perfect for body surfing and boogie boarding. Great local scene too. We visited Poipu one day but were glad to return to the north shore.

Things some or all of us did: kayak to Wailua waterfalls, airplane ride w/ Wings over Kauai, luau at Mediterranean Gourmet, hike to Hanakapi'ai beach, surf lessons in Hanalei.

Although we cooked dinner at home most nights, we had one evening meal at Bar Acuda (excellent) and sampled Bubba's Burgers and Hanalei Pizza for lunch (both pretty tasty). We stopped at many fruit stands for amazing fresh pineapple, papaya, coconut and passion fruit. We had a lot of smoothies and shave ice.

A truly great trip.
