Kapaa ©
Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Secret Beach has been added to your itinerary. We've included these beaches for you: Shipwreck Beach and Kalapaki Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Polihale State Park and Kalalau Lookout. Change things up with these side-trips from Kapaa: Wai`oli Hui`ia Church (in Hanalei), Kokee Natural History Museum (in Kekaha) and Makawehi Bluff (in Poipu). There's lots more to do: trek along Kuilau Ridge Trail, stroll through Kauai Path, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church, and look for gifts at Kapaia Stitchery.

For reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Kapaa trip itinerary maker app .

San Jose to Kapaa is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. When traveling from San Jose in January, plan for a bit warmer days and warmer nights in Kapaa: temperatures range from 79°F by day to 65°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
