Subject: Kauai
Look for places up beyond Princeville on the north side, particularly near Hanalei. It is a small town with good places to eat and drink, plus there is a great river area for kayaking and such. The beaches up here can be rougher, but there are much fewer people. There is a beautiful garden park and good hiking trails. The south side has the large hotels and the calmer areas to swim.
