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!!!
