Kauai in December with grandparents and teens - best location?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, this is a tangent off the earlier post about the best spot on Kauai for a family in December. We are planning a family trip to celebrate a milestone with grandparents and kids, ages 11 to 16.

We are most interested on the north shore but I'm mindful of the likely rougher waters and the potential for more rain. At this point we are looking at a few houses - two are near Anini Beach and one is in Hanalei town. I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on which spots might be best for older folks/teens. The grandparents like to walk - is it too hilly around Anini? What are the paths like down to the beach? The grandparents are in good shape but wouldn't do too well on a steep rocky path. Is it possible to walk along the beach for a while?

Also, I read that Anini beach can be calm even in winter but it looks like it is unguarded.
Would Hanalei Bay be better for the kids - all strong swimmers - because it is guarded? If the waves are high, are there any places near Hanalei or Anini where we could potentially swim/boogie board?

Are there other locations on the north shore we should consider as more suitable?

Thank you very much for your thoughts.
