Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Family-friendly places like Poipu Beach Park and Anini Beach will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Catamaran Kahanu (in Eleele), Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei) and Swinging Bridge (in Hanapepe). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Tunnels Beach, see some colorful creatures with Fathom Five Divers, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lumahai Beach, and admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls.

New York City to Kapaa is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from New York City in September, with highs in Kapaa at 86°F and lows at 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
