Kapaa — 7 nights

Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Take a break from the city and head to Kayaking & Canoeing and Anini Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Shipwreck Beach and Makawehi Bluff. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kapaa: Hanalei Valley Lookout (in Hanalei), Poipu (Baby Beach, Spouting Horn, &more) and Makauwahi Cave Reserve (in Kalaheo). There's much more to do: trek along Kauai Path, explore the activities along Menehune Fishpond, Head underground at Fern Grotto, and take in the dramatic scenery at Ho'olalaea Waterfall.

To find photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Kapaa trip planner.

Los Angeles to Kapaa is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Traveling from Los Angeles to Kapaa, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference.

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.
