Our first trip to Kauai starts in 3 weeks and we are staying on the North shore ( Pali Ke Kua - hope it's nice). I'm printing and bringing your report because it sound like you certainly knew where to go. Thanks !

Here are some places really worth visiting that are not mentioned in my report because we did them last year:

Waimea Canyon
Kilauea Lighthouse/Bird Sanctuary
Anini Beach
Roy's Restaurant in Poipu
The Maha'ulepu Beach area
NaPali coast boat tour
Polihale Beach
Lydgate Park (if you have kids)
Have a great trip. If you don't have a copy of the "Ultimate Kauai Guidebook", get one. I found it handy to have for the maps and the directions they give to get to some of the beaches on the north shore.

Hi Bill - I saw your travelogue. I'm looking for info on Maha`ulepu Beach (from you last trip) How hard is to get to. Is the beach close to the parking or is it a hike to the beach. I have an elderly gram that we don't want to wear out.

It is a pretty isolated area, but not to hard to get to. Take Poipu Rd past the Hyatt and it turns into a dirt road. At the dead end turn right and follow it to the end. If you go right at the end you get to Gillin's Beach if you go to the left the road takes you to another beach. Both beaches are fairly close to walk to from where you can park. It is a rugged and barren landscape that I found captivating. The beaches were not good for swimming when I was there as it was very rough and windy.
Enjoy your trip.
