"Kauai" Kauai by kellinwood

Kauai Travel Guide: 984 reviews and 2,664 photos

My wife and I spend a week on Kauai in November 2011. You can't go wrong with a trip to Kauai -- it has something for everyone and we loved it.

But don't go to Kauai if you're afraid of chickens, lol. There are chickens everywhere. I think there might be more of them than people.

Here's a list of some of the things we did:

Lihue area

Kauai Museum
Wailua Falls
Menehune Fishpond

Wailua area

Opaeka'a Falls
Keahua Forestry Arboretum
Smiths Fern Grotto Cruise
Monico's Taqueria

Kapa'a area

Wahoo Seafood Bar & Grill

Waimea area

Waimea Canyon
Kalalau Lookout
Island Taco

North Shore

Kilauea Lighthouse
Hiking the Napali Coast from Ke'e Beach
Shopping and Dining in Hanalei

Poipu area

National Botanical Gardens Tour (Allerton Gardens)
Snorkeling at Lawai Beach
Moir Orchid Gardens

Eleele area

Kauai Coffee Plantation

My advice is to plan your accommodations only after looking at the map. You'll notice that the roads don't go all the way around the island or through the middle, so if you only stay in Hanalei at the far north end then you'll have a long drive to see Waimea Canyon at the other end of the road. We stayed at the Marriott Resort in Lihue which is somewhat centrally located.
