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.
