Love this place. As with Kona there is a beach and some shopping within a short walking distance. Hop on/Hop off buses as well. Some of our group did the tubing experience that they all really enjoyed and a couple of us just did the Resort for a day since we were coming back to Kauai after our cruise which was when we did the helicopter tour - cannot recommend it highly enough. We got to see Waiema Canyon, Na Pali Coast, waterfalls, fly inside the crafter. Breathtaking & magical. Driving out to Waiema Canyon is also doable on the first day. THe drive up north is nice but not necessarily a must do if you only have this short time to explore.

We rented a car for the day and a half we were in Kauai. Our first day, we drove up to Waimea Canyon while stopping at the various locations in the park. There is a $5 parking fee that will cover you at each of the parks assorted lots. We were lucky as we got there pretty early (around 10:00) and beat the big tour buses and crowds. Make sure you drive to Kalalau Lookout for one of the most spectacular views you will ever see. It is only about 20-minutes from the main parking lot area via car. Since we had plenty of time on our 1st day, we googled beaches on Kauai and chose to drive up to Polihale State Park. Just FYI - I suggest only going here if you have a jeep or some other type of larger vehicle. We, however, had a Hyundai Elantra, and had no idea what was in store for the teeth-chattering drive (about 20-minutes) over a rutted, pot-holed gravel road, that brought us to one ofthe most beautiful and secluded beaches you will ever see. Once you arrive, the sand to get to the beach is "VERY HOT" so make sure you have proper footwear. Our 2nd day, we drove up the north shore area to Princeville and viewed the sites and did some shopping.

FABULOUS! FABULOU! FABULOUS!!! THIS is the place we will return to spend more time in the future!!! We went on the excursion that took you to all the movie locations that we filmed here - VERY INTERESTING and FABULOUS LUNCH!!! It is extremely well done - couldn't have been happier. Probably the best island sightseeing tour we went on. Just sights, not any shops! That said, shops = souvenirs and bathroom breaks!

We took a taxi to the Hailohana Plantation and rode the train. It was most interesting. The other half day in Kauai we saw the Koi fish garden at the Marriott Hotel since it was suggested by the shuttle driver going to the shopping area.

We rented a scooter from the Island, and had a great time on our own tour. Next time, we will rent a car, as that scooter ride was a bit too much for our old person bodies.
