Kauai, Hawaii is Simply Irresistible

The Hanalei Valley on north Kauai is a lush, tropical spot where they still grow taro and live close to the land.

The north coast of the island of Kauai features gorgeous mountains and fabulous gardens. Try a hike along the coast to a lonely beach that will have you uttering words like “paradise” over and over.

Princeville Golf Course is a spectacular layout near the town of Hanalei on the north part of Kauai.

Tahiti Nui is a fun bar in Hanalei town, where part of the movie “The Descendants” was filmed. I did NOT spot George Clooney when I visited. Sorry, ladies.

The Kilauea Lighthouse is a fantastic spot for phots on the northeast shore of Kauai.

The east coast of Kauai is filled with quiet, lonely beaches just made for exploring.

The Outrigger Waipouli is a fantastic, family resort on the south coast of Kauai, with lots of shops and restaurants nearby and a great swimming pool.

Poipu Beach is heaven for tourists as well as turtles.

Kukui O Lono golf course costs just $9 U.S., and you can play all day. Not a great course in terms of conditions, but the people are a blast and the views tremendous.

If you’re not a golf fan, Kukui O Lono has gorgeous gardens you can check out for free.

You might find a band called The GOATS (Greatest of All Time – Sometimes) performing at Kukui O Lono Golf Course. Not to be missed!!

The town of Hanapepe features the wonderful Talk Story bookshop. Check my Toronto Star story from the other day for more.

The town of Hanapepe has some lovely shops and excellent galleries with unique art I’ve never seen anyplace else.

Waimea Canyon is one of the wonders of the world, with an ever-changing landscape.

The lookout at the end of the road, just past the Waimea Canyon lookout, is a great way to get a look at the misty mountains of north Kauai.
