Eat like the locals!

Recently, Kauai restaurants have been given the green light to expand their services to once again offer the option of dining in. This comes with expectations of following social distancing guidelines and other requirements such as wearing face masks upon entering.  Here are some south Kauai eateries we love:

Hit the local farmers market, the Kauai Culinary Market, at The Shops of Kukuiula in search of locally grown fresh produce, regional sundries and much more need not look much further than right here in the beautiful and sunny Poipu.

See the sights at your own pace!

Spouting Horn is a fun little sight to see.  As waves crash into the sea walls water pushes through old lava tubes creating a natural spout shooting water upwards as high up as 30 feet into the air.  This spectacular display of natures greatness is a photo op you surely do not want to miss.

Take an easy hike following the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail.  Explore the sandy dunes and majestic sea cliffs of the south east area of Poipu called Mahaulepu.  This trail is rated as easy and leisurely.  It will take approximately 2 hours in and another 2 hours out so be sure to pack some water and wear comfortable shoes.

Take long walks on the beach!

Yes, we know it’s totally cliche but the feeling of sand under your feet and the sound of waves washing onto shore are pretty tough to beat, especially if you’re on the garden island.  One of our favorites happens to be a morning stroll at Shipwrecks Beach, a wonderful white sand beach great for swimming, surfing, and bodyboarding.
