"I would not recommend visiting..." Hawaii (State of) Warnings Or Dangers Tip by azure43

Hawaii (State of) Warnings and Dangers: 96 reviews and 83 photos

I would not recommend visiting beach parks or beaches late at night by yourself or in a very small group. Especially if you are male(s). Local thugs (mostly young) will beat you up. A visitor I know was beaten up this past week by 5 young men on the beach fronting the Marriot Hotel (Kalapaki Beach). There was an attack several years ago in the Lydgate park on a person enjoying the stars at night. He is lucky to be alive. Kauai is a great place but use your head when you go out at night. Avoid walking in the Anchor Cove retail building area to the boat harbor area at night (Kalapaki area). I mention these warnings, because nobody that sells you a hotel room will warn you before you travel or when you arrive here.
