Hawaii Vacations Backroads

by admin on February 7, 2011

Type Hawaii vacations, Hawaii pictures, or just Hawaii, into Google, and you will see all the iconic images of Hawaii; Waikiki, Whales breaching, volcanoes, sandy beaches, straws bobbing in tropical drinks, hula girls, lush famous scenic views.

While most visitors have their list of activities and sites to see, few leave time for unscheduled exploring. Driving off the beaten path, taking walks in residential neighbor hoods, cruising outside of the postcard-reality limitations.

Mornings in a Kauai Eastside Resort

Kauai Sunrise

I feel like I am on vacation often as I drive to work. Getting up before sunrise may be a drag, but commuting during the sunrise has its perks. Visitors stay at one of the Eastside Resorts on Kauai in Kapaa or Wailua towns, will be greeted each morning with these blessings. Hanalei may be lush, Poipu may be sunny, but resorts like the Islander on the Beach or the Kauai Beach Resort have there own advantages. You can find many of the rentals available at Aloha Condos.

Poipu Vacation Rentals

Now, I have lived on and off of Kauai for over 25 years and I must say that I have been partial to the east side and up north. I have spent plenty of days on the south side, but always considered it too touristy. After the past few weeks though, I am starting to change my tune.


I used to hesitate to tell people to stay on the south side, in places like the Nihi Kai villas or the Lawai Beach Resort or any of the condos there. But after have some amazing days down there recently I feel like I can truly recommend taking off your shoes in Poipu. [click to continue…]


Visiting Kauai’s Hanalei Valley

When you visit Kauai, you will undoubtedly visit the North Shore. Even if you are staying on the south side at one of the big resorts, or in one of the centrally located resort, like the Kauai Beach Resort, on the east side, you will definitely make the trek up to Hanalei. The Hanalei Valley is not easily accessed, so most people view it from afar. Which, as you can see from my shots, is not such a bad way to see it. [click to continue…]


Take Pictures While Visiting Kauai

I grabbed these photos on my way to work today. Just pulled over and snapped them as I was driving through Anahola on Kauai’s eastside. I was thinking about writing an article for Puu Poa and making a list of different things that people could do for cheap on Kauai. FInd more Hawaii Vacation Deals on their website.
