Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Bring the kids along to Poipu Beach Park and Spouting Horn. Explore Kapaa's surroundings by going to Catamaran Kahanu (in Eleele), Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei) and Polihale State Park (in Waimea). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Shipwreck Beach, stroll through Kalapaki Beach, see some colorful creatures with Fathom Five Divers, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kauai's Hindu Monastery.

Traveling from New York City in March, things will get much hotter in Kapaa: highs are around 78°F and lows about 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
