Lihue has calm waters, lots of sun, and great snorkeling. In addition to resort hotels you can find a variety of vacation rentals. Hikes can lead to petroglyphs or to Bubba Gump's. It winter months it's a hotspot for whale watching.

Kahului is "town" to locals. Office max, old navy, sports authority and other non-tourist shops and restaurants.

i lived in Wahiawa, Hawaii on Schofield Barracks, right across from Wheeler Army Air Field, where i went to Wheeler Middle School. Wahiawa is a great place to visit i could walk anywhere there and never be bored. everyone is laid back, i saw two trucks get in to a fender-bender and both drivers got out to see if the ...

On the east side of Kauai and the so-called "Coconut Coast," Kapaa is a busy place. Locals come to do business, hang out and go shopping, while tourists eat, shop, drink and amble back and forth to the beach. A lot of vacation rentals and B&Bs are scattered around Kapaa, but if you want something more peaceful, look further north ...

Is very nice and a remote area. With the new Disney Resort now there it is still a hidden gem but offering a lot more to see. It is pricey so if you are going to visit prepare for Disney prices but the beaches are all still public and free. It makes a great weekend vacation for both the tourist ...

A little slide of paradise! Great views of pristine ocean, and a cute but tiny town.

Not much around but some very nice reef off-shore with caves, and good spearfishing. Otherwise there is the university and the cultural center here.

This was one of the most perfect places on all of Kauai. I think though that most places on this island are...

The village of Waimanalo is technically considered two places, Waimanalo and Waimanalo Beach, both with a population of about 5,000 each. Waimanalo Beach is along the Waimanalo beach front, and Waimanalo is inset off the beach. When you come here down from Kailua or up around Makapu'u point from Honolulu on the Kaniana'ole highway, you will be removed from modern ...

Big Beach is so long it has 3 entrances. Most go to the first. There are restrooms here and lifeguards. When the waves are high its not recommended for young or poor swimmers but its fun to watch bodyboarders perform. The beach is a long crescent that sparkles. To the north is a cliff which offers great views.

If they ever film Wild Wild West in Hawaii this would be the perfect place for it. Very dry and sunny but beautiful beaches. Good hikes and great snorkeling.

Personally - this is my favorite resort area on Maui. Many people like Wailea better. Good for you. I love the classic white sand beaches and relaxed luxury feel of Kapalua's West Maui strip. Wailea on the East side has more of a honeymooners meet Paris Hilton vibe - its a little too LA for my tastes but trust me ...

I lived in Haiku when I was on the island. Its not much of a town - probably not worth a visit if you are here for a week. But its a nice community in the beginnings of the jungly part of the island.

A cute small town located upcountry Maui. There are a few eateries and hang out places. I went hiking not too far from the main town center, a good hour hike into some cavern areas. Weather can go from sunny dry to rainy downpour. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that can get wet and bring a flashlight if you ...

A very sleepy little town, but also offers the most infrastructure after Haleiwa. The nucleolus is Foodland, but the reason to go is for Waimea, and the other amazing beaches. At night the food trucks come out here, and there is always a solid meal to be had at the Shark Cove grill.

This is where I used to live when I was stationed on submarines at Pearl. I miss the Pearl City Tavern.
