Favorite Beaches (not in any order)
-Poipu - Great swimming for kids of all ages. Great snorkeling that is super close to the condo. Turtles and Monk Seals sunbathe daily for pics.
-Polihale - Really need a 4x4 to get there but you can do it with a car but be careful as its 4 miles of BUMPY road. The Ocean is a bit tense here from time to time. The Locals love it beause its never crowded with tourists. Its the Southern end of the Na Pali coast. Great scenery.
-Ke'e - Northern most Beach past Hanalei. The end of the road literally!! Awesome sunsets from here but it gets dark quick on the way back on a very steep, narrow curvy road. Be Careful!! Great in summer for some snorkeling and swimming but rainy season, Don't go in the water!!
-Hanalei Bay - Absolutely great beach sand and really safe conditions for most of year especially in summer. Check conditions first in Rainy season.
-Kalapaki - Great beach in Lihue. Conditions are great for family swimming and learning to surf. Avoid Cruise Ship day (Thursdays).
-Shipwreck - Great for bodysurfing or boogie boarding and surfing. People watching and lounging.
and that's just a small section of all of them on the island as well!!!
