Be prepared though for frequent tropical downpours but these make the island so lush and green. After the downpour, the sun is fast out again and the most beautiful rainbows will be displayed. The readers of 'Travel & Leisure Magazine' have voted Kauai as the best island in Hawaii to spend your vacation 3 years in a row.
With miles of sandy beaches and no resort next to it, Kauai offers lots of quiet spots for relaxation or meditation away from hotel crowds and resorts. When looking for nightlife action, then Kauai is probably not the right place for your Hawaii vacation. Did you know that a Kauai rule is that no building may exceed the height of a coconut tree? So, even on the Kapaa Coconut Coast the height of condo resorts is not higher than 3 or 4 stories.
Going further north from Kapaa on the one and only road the traveler gets to beautiful Kauai's North Shore with Princeville Resort as a centerpiece. Princeville Resort includes a luxury Sheraton hotel and 10 condo complexes plus lots of new timeshare golfcourse condos. Hanalei is the laid back center of North Shore life with Hanalei Bay beach attracting families with kids because of the calm ocean. Hanalei is the gateway to the wild Na Pali Coast. Be aware that the North Shore has quite a bit more rain than the south point of Kauai.
