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 ...

This is, in my opinion, the most beautiful spot on the island, with by far the best hiking. You really see a lot more if you get a chance to hike here, rather than just going to the tourist center parking lot/lookout. The Canyon trail is really short (maybe 3 miles roundtrip) and takes you to some stunning viewpoints, ending ...

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 ...

I'm going to go against the crowd here, and say that Princeville is not one of my favorite places on Kauai, or in all of Hawaii. It's an artificially manicured and developed resort and golf course area without much local or Hawaiian flavor. If you want a cushy resort experience where you're well-insulated from real life in Hawaii, then by ...

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.

I love Honoka'a town. The downtown is charming and it's a good place to stop on the way to the Waipio valley lookout.

Makena is lovely, and the homes that dot the waterfront in this luxury enclave are unbelievable. They do movies in the park from time to time, and there are some very cool beaches to explore on this part of the island. One has black sand.

One of the most fascinating things about Hawaii and the Big Island especially is that the entire island is an active volcano! A visit to the Volcano's National Park is a must when touring the Big Island. See the steaming volcanic craters and learn all you could want to know about the volcano's of Hawaii!

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.

Located on the west side of the island... Captain Cook has a great hostel to stay at run by Doc Holiday! Doc is a retired builder and crane operator. He helps people in trouble... He has a work trade program of sorts.
