South and West Shore Beaches
Paradise in Two Easy Shores
Oahu has Waikiki. The Big Island’s got Mauna Kea. Maui lays claim to Ka’anapali. Kauai’s beaches might not be as famous as Hawaii’s other hotspots but just wait until you experience them. Stretching from Kauai’s eastern tip, down along its southern side, and up west, this expanse of coastline swells with paradisiacal expanses of white sand and turquoise water, each of which stand up against the islands’ biggest names…and with more standing room. Unlike their northern counterparts, the beaches here are especially well-suited to learners of all kinds, with serene waters fostering family fun as well as future watersports enthusiasts. From surfing, swimming, and snorkeling, in Poipu’s calmly -rolling waves to soaking up rays and sand-duned scenery at the secluded Polihale Beach Park, these regions boast a range of blissful beach-topias. Perhaps most well known is Kalapaki, a picturesque and amenity-laden natural harbor where sunbathers and sandcastle-makers relax alongside swimmers and sailors, and budding surfers learn how to hitch a ride. Whether exploring your potential or simply savoring the sun and scenery, you’ll find an unforgettable paradise on these shores.
Beautiful beaches. No traffic. No tall buildings. Rainbows. Polite and talkative residents. Quiet places to eat. There's a certain vibe here. One I don't feel elsewhere. If you understand what "being at peace with yourself" means, then I suppose that explains it. I don't think about bad things when I'm here. I don't pose, I don't pretend. No reason to, no desire to. The island coaxes forth an inner sea-change of sorts. And a welcomed one at that. I'm not me anymore when I'm here: I'm who I WANT to be.
