SoccerTiki and I will be Celebrating Our 5th Anniversary on the Island of Kauai this October. We will be on Kauai for one week. Does anyone have any suggestions of places to see, things to do, places to eat and drink?

For Poly-Pop tiki places, I only know of two:
Tahiti Nui
Tiki Iniki

People here on TC also talk a lot about the Coco Palms but, after the recent fire, I don't know if there's anything left to see.

For general sightseeing, the "Revealed" guidebooks are excellent for travel in the Hawaiian islands.
Kauai Revealed

In Hawaii, even more than here, Costco and Walmart are your friends. Visit them often.

Of course Tahiti Nui is not to be missed.CeCE and I had a couple of hours to kill before our flight home so we had a memorable dinner at Duke’s at the Lihue Merriot. The Barefoot Bar there was supercool. Five minutes from the airport. For that very special anniversary dinner the Makana Terrace in the St Regis hotel is incomparable! Book a table at dusk - the terrace overlooks Hanalei Bay. Fall in love all over again. Seafood is as good as it gets. I had an Acai cocktail (Acai Sunset,I think.) which was outstanding. Congratulations to you Karen and Chris, have fun.
David and CeCe
Btw, consider my recommendation only if you’re staying in the vicinity of Princeville(north shore). It would be a tough drive back to Lihue at night

Congrats!

Here are some drink notes from our trip this past February:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=44613&forum=16&vpost=709508&hilite=kilohana



We didn't visit on this trip (it's expensive and we're not Fancy Food people), but the Tidepools restaurant at the Grand Hyatt has a great atmosphere. It's an appropriate 'special dinner' kind of place.

Last I heard, the Coco Palms tours ARE still going on. Unfortunately, the lobby building is gone after the fire, but there's still a lot to see and Bob tells lots of great stories. There's a contact number on this website if you want to call and double check first, but you just show up before 2, Monday - Friday.

It looks like you already know about lots of good stuff from your previous visit - a more unusual thing we did this trip was to visit the Humane Society. You can play with a bunch of the cats if you like, and you can actually take a dog out on a field trip for the day! It was sad leaving ours behind, but it felt good knowing she got out and had a fun day and met some potential adopters.

Anahola Bay and beach are not very far north of Kapa’a.
CeCe and I stumbled upon a huge pile of fish net that had washed ashore. Great beach combing. Very popular with local families but seldom crowded
Cheers!

Cheers!

Oh, I forgot to mention: while you're at Kilohana Plantation for a Mai Tai, you can do the free Koloa Rum tasting next door. Just don't dilute it with the mai tai mix they give you.

I forgot to mention that on our last trip to Kauai we booked a helicopter tour of the entire island with Sunshine Helicopters out of Princeville.
Also spent a morning at Na Aina Botanical Gardens( north end of Kauai). Both were spectacular! Booked em both online prior to leaving California- quite a savings.
Have fun!

Make sure you drive the north shore from Hanalei to the end of the road. That is the best part of Kauai, IMO! And swim at Ke`e Beach, at the end of the road. Except check with the lifeguard, I just saw the surf report and it's huge on the north shore right now, 10-14'. Good swimming at Poipu Beach, and next door at the Sheraton. Go to the Kilauea lighthouse. Check out Havaiki in Hanalei, almost across the street from Tahiti Nui.
