Kapaa

— 9 nights
Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kuilau Ridge Trail and Ho'olalaea Waterfall. Get outdoors at Salt Pond Beach Park and Ho'opi'i Falls. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kapaa: Hanapepe (Swinging Bridge, Hanapepe Friday Night Festival & Art Walk, &more). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kauai's Hindu Monastery, stroll through Anahola Beach Park, tee off at Wailua Golf Course, and admire the sheer force of Wailua Falls.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
