Yes, golf is expensive in Hawaii, but there are creative ways to play golf at fantastic golf courses and play at reduced costs: 1) Play at multiple Courses. For $375 versus $530, you can golf at three of the best golf courses on Kauai. You play one round at each location. This is billed as the"Kauai Golf Challenge". Each of the three courses is "connected" with a fabulous hotel so you can make a day of golfing and beaching at the same time. 2)Play at one course the first day and play subsequent days at significantly reduced rates.3)Sign up for a "tournament". For less than $60, I hit a bucket of balls, participated in a ½ hour clinic, golfed in a nine hole scramble, golfed the...Read More

Story/Tip

There is a variety of beaches in Kauai. Some beaches are a short piece of land with beautiful white sand and calm water for ocean swimming. Many of the beaches have a connected park so visitors have a pavilion area for picnics and playgrounds for children in addition to the swimming area. Other "beaches" are more for walking along the water and taking in the beauty of the area (and swimming is not permitted or recommended). In addition, many beaches in Kauai are known by two names: one is the name that is used to define the long strip of beach areas and then each part of that one beach has a special name. My recommendation is to make an effort to visit many beaches rather than just the one at your doo...Read More

Kauai's Version of the Grand Canyon

One of the most popular places to visit on Kauai is Waimea Canyon. This natural wonder is billed as the Pacific’s Grand Canyon. If you visit the site yourself, you should plan to spend most of the morning, if not all day, driving to the canyon and stopping frequently along the arduous 10 mile drive up the highway. If you take a tour, this stop will be the primary part of the tour. The actual canyon is huge and breathtaking. According to literature, the canyon is 10 miles long, one mile wide, and 3,500-feet deep! The colors are very vibrant from lush green to deep red clay, and various shades of browns and grays in between. If you drive to the top, the final lookout spot offers views of NaPali C...Read More

Attraction | "Nice (but lesser known) sights to see"

Everyone who goes to Kauai sees the major sights such as Waimea Canyon, Fern Grotto, Poi’pu Beach, etc. However, many other stops in the Garden Island are worth spending time on. The best spot that few tourists see is the Kauai Museum. We stopped because the weather was iffy and ending up spending several hours at the museum. We spent over ½ hour in the "theater" watching a beautiful video of Kauai. Some of the footage (for instance of the beautiful NaPali Coast) was taken from a helicopter. Watching the waterfalls and other scenery was not as great as being on a helicopter myself, but it came close. And a $5 adult admission fee to the museum is a lot cheaper than $75 (or more) for the real...Read More

After doing some research (including reading lots of journals), I selected about ten different restaurants for lunch and dinner. The food was great in each restaurant and I was not disappointed at all. However there were three restaurants that had qualities to rate a "must return" for my next Kauai visit. The excellent atmosphere of Duke’s Canoe Club (near Lihue) is the key reason I want to return to Duke's. This restaurant has few outside walls and since it is right on the beach, you get to watch the ocean view as you eat. Of course, you could also feast on the beautiful waterfalls right in the center of the restaurant (we requested a table right by the main waterfall). In addition, many m...Read More
