Kauai Beaches

Kauai’s Beaches are voted to be some of the most beautiful on the planet. Kauai’s beaches are famous for long stretches of secluded white sand, warm turquoise waters and tropical backdrops. As you go to one of them, choose one that has lifeguards for swimming and snorkeling and check the surf report before going out. Kauai Beaches can be exposed to strong waves, unpredictable conditions and rip currents. Use caution follow beach safety in and around Kauai waters.

 

Anahola BeachAnahola Beach – Anahola Beach is a beautiful white sand fringed bay, with good swimming and decent snorkeling most of the year due to a protective outlying reef. Anahola Beach Park is located just south of Anahola Bay. This family friendly beach is tucked away and hidden from the main road. This secluded beach is an easy beach to drive up to and enjoy without having to carry your beach gear too far. From the shore you can see the beautiful mountains of Kalalea.

The Anahola Beach Park is manned by a County of Kauai lifeguard and offers good shade, a sandy beach, camping facilities and fun for all ages. This beach is popular among the locals and is crowded on the weekends with families picnicking and enjoying the beach.

The North end of the bay at the mouth of the Anahola River is another great beach for shelling, fishing from shore and photo opportunities. Use caution near the river-mouth for strong currents. There are no lifeguard stations at the river-mouth end of the bay.  Get Directions to Anahola Beach

Anini Beach of Kauai - SnorkelingAnini Beach – There is no lifeguard posted at Anini Beach, but is still considered to be one of the safer beaches on Kauai’s North Shore during the summer months. Anini boasts the longest and widest fringing reef in the Hawaiian Islands and because of the unique conditions it usually has well protected waters and some of the most consistent conditions for water activities. Enjoy snorkeling, beach walks, picnicking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Anini beach is known to have strong currents in the channels and outside the protective reef. Always use caution especially during high surf.  On windy days you are likely to see wind surfers out riding the waves.

Anini Beach is popular for camping and also a great beach for simply relaxing with a book, fishing from shore or paddle boarding above the lively reef. The deeper and clearer water can be enticing, but it is better to be cautious and stay closer to shore.

Anini Beach is usually less crowded than Poipu or Hanalei and is really quite breathtaking. The Beach Park has multiple campsites with permits, shade trees, picnic tables, pavilions, restrooms and showers. My wife and I went here on one of our trips and within a short time snorkeling we saw a sea turtle, some trumpet fish and several other type of fish while we were going across the reef. Get Diretions to Anini Beach.

Baby beach in Poipu KauaiBaby Beach – in Poipu is a small, secluded and generally protected beach that is great for families traveling with infants and toddlers. The beauty of this little  strip of peach in poipu that it is usually less crowded than nearby Poipu Beach Park and the calm waters are perfect for babies, hence the name. It is not uncommon to view sea turtles and monk seals at baby beach, but remember to keep your distance as these animals are protected.

Finding the beach is a little tricky. From the Lawai Road, make a left on Ho’ona Road and look for a yellow pipe that marks the beach access. Get Directions to Baby Beach in Poipu. This beach is within walking distance from our Kauai Vacation Rental Condo / Manualoha 601.

Vacation Home Rental Verses Hotel Room – Which To Choose?

Vacation Rental VS Hotel

You have booked your tickets for a flight to the Garden Island and now you need to find a place to stay. Vacation rental or hotel room? The choice is easy. My wife and I have traveled extensively over the last few years and we have found renting a vacation rental home for lodging far outweighs staying at a hotel. Here is why.

After a busy day out visiting a new destination it is wonderful to be able to come “home” to a private place.

We have found that Days tend to be a bit longer when one is on vacation. We are usually busy walking, hiking, touring, trying to see as much as we can and after many hours we are ready to relax, even if it is in the middle of the afternoon. Who wants to go back to a hotel room with just a bed a and a TV in it? When we make our lodging choice a vacation rental property, especially a nice one, going back to it at the end of an excursion is a welcome relief.

There is a kitchen, a living room and perhaps even a pool.Our Poipu Vacation Rental When the weather is not cooperating (it happens, especially in tropical environments) we have a home in which to do indoor activities we like to do most (read, yoga, play games, or enjoy the view).

Eating out is great but three times a day?

When we are on vacation the last thing my wife or I want to do is cook every meal. If our lodging choice is a hotel, however, there is no option we have to go out for every single meal. When staying at a vacation rental we are able to cook up a breakfast while still wearing night clothes. Poipu Vacation Rental, Manualoha 601 KitchenWe can pack a lunch and take it with us to the beach or where ever we decide to go. And, after a long day of hiking we can whip up something easy to eat rather than wait for a table at a restaurant.

When we want someone else to cook, we can hire a chef to come to the house or go to the restaurant of our choosing. This flexibility means less stress and more relaxation.

Most resort hotels have fabulous pool areas but they come with a price.

There are no doubts that most resort hotels have fabulous pools. Unfortunately though you must share those pools with many other people, including other people’s children. No offense against children but they can be loud, and you really can’t do much about it. If our lodging choice is a vacation rental with a pool it is all mine to enjoy.

Which leads us now to is privacy.

The only place private at a hotel is your room, even then housekeeping comes by each day and prompts you to feel the need to be out of their way. When we rent a vacation rental home we are assured of privacy. Often times the homes are in residential areas where the only people you might run into are the neighbors out walking their pets.

Owners of vacation rental properties generally take pride in their home.

Our Poipu Vacation Rental Kauai Living roomOur experience is that vacation rental property owners want you to have a wonderful stay at their home. They are usually good about communicating and answering your questions prior to your stay. Most make sure to have books and brochures full of local information about the area and suggestions as to where to eat, shop or explore available in the home. In our case we supply our guests with our Digital Welcome Book & Local Guide.

Their local knowledge is especially valuable, if they live full time in the area.

A Vacation rental home will most times be less expensive than hotels.

If you have a large family or group that would require more than one hotel room, a vacation rental may save you money in the long run. When booking a home we always ask what the total amount will be, including rent, cleaning, taxes, or other related costs to the rental. A quote is always given along with payment requirements so there are no unexpected fees.

Often after making the lodging choice of a hotel room we tend to find out after arriving that there are Resort Fees & other charges tacked on to the bill. Many hotels charge for parking now on top of the room charges. We also take into account other rentals we might have to pay for such as bikes, tennis rackets, snorkeling gear, boogie boards or an ice chest. Our Poipu Beach vacation rental and many others, will provide these at no charge. All of these expenses need to be taken into account when you decide where to stay.

The Exception

Poipu Kai Resort Tennis Club

Vacation rentals are not always the best lodging though, if we need a room for only one night. If we plan to stay for three or more nights, we will look for a vacation rental home in the area before booking anything else. We will try to book directly with the owner. That way we can also save on any service or or booking fee a manager or booking company like VRBO, Airbnb or HomeAway charge.

Now, we know these things, not just because we have traveled a lot, but because we own a vacation rental on Kauai, Hawaii. The photos above & below in the gallery have been taken of our home or of the surrounding areas of Manualoha at Poipu Kai. Every vacation rental that we have stayed in has helped to make us very aware of what is important to a traveler. That is what has allowed us to be able to exceed most traveler’s needs and expectations with many 5 Star Reviews.
