Another overrated place. Stop by so you can say you saw it. There are some venders there with good prices on jewelry. Surprisenly there was stuff made in China.

This is a beautiful resort. If you stay in the Banyon building or the Alii you will have a ocean view. The condo is nicely furnished with everything you need. There are no activities to speak of, but who needs them on this gorgeous island.

This is overrated. Don't go looking for it because you will probably drive through it numerous times.

Kauai Aadheenam Hindu Monastery

Attraction | "Hindu Monastery"

Quote:
We made a reservation as advised, but we never were asked to give our name, so I think you could just 'show up". There were so many people that it was difficult to hear anything. After an extensive talk by a lay person, we never spoke to a monk, we went on a walk. The monastery is on a gorgeous piece of property. The stones carved by the monks are unbeliveable. It was a nice way to spend the morning.
