Kapaa - One of Kauai's Brightest Spots
Kauai, known as the Garden Isle, contains a wide and vibrant collection of vacation attractions. Sweet spots like Kapaa will assure you that you’ve made the right choice by coming here, so unpack your bags and get ready to enjoy a journey to a true gem in Hawaii’s impressive crown.
Located on the eastern coast – which will make for spectacular sunrise scenes, by the way – Kapaa is a small town with a reputation for being a stress-free zone. The essence of Hawaii is here without all the glitz and glamour that busier spots exhibit, so feel lucky to have found a secret hideaway amongst the lush rainforests, hills, valleys and beaches.
Traditional Luaus combine spectacle with authentic food and drink all beneath a canopy of brilliant stars. Popular sights to see along the east side of the island include Opaekaa Falls, the Fern Grotto and Sleeping Giant - a mountain formation of legendary stature. All will entice you to unleash your adventurous side – and maybe even burn a few calories- by hiking, biking and climbing the lush terrain.
You’ll surely sleep like a baby each night when you retire to the comfort of your vacation condo, and don’t forget that the beach is always ready to soothe you into a state of deep repose. Also known as the Coconut Coast, Kapaa and its surrounding regions offer the likes of Lydgate Beach Park (perfect for snorkeling), Kealia Beach (sunny and pleasant but without lifeguards), and Kinipopo Shopping Village. Whether you feel like lazing on the sandy shore or picking out the perfect memento, the Kapaa region has what you’re looking for.
The other beauties in Kauai’s bouquet, including Princeville, Hanalei and Poipu, are worth some time as well, but establishing Kapaa as your home away from home will serve you well as you take in as much sensory stimulation – and relaxation – as possible.
