Hawaii Adventure Park is a wild water fun park located, funny enough, on the drier side of Oahu in Kapolei. If you are staying “in town” near Waikiki, somewhere like the Ilikai Hotel, or any of the big hotels (Aloha Condos is a good resource to find accommodations), it’s a great excuse to venture out to the west side. Families find it a great place to take the kids to cool off and also find a variety of water activities for all ages.
The water playground is a spot with smaller slides, waterfalls and water cannons. Thrill seekers will find the park an ultimate water adventure with the Tornado that hurls them through a 130-foot tunnel into a pool. Body board lessons are available too—perfect practice before trying it in the ocean. [click to continue…]
A day of snorkeling, swimming and sunning in Poipu, Kauai, can easily turbo-charge your appetite. Guests enjoying a serene stay at Whaler’s Cove, in its idyllic location, find the distinct advantage of accessibility to the Poipu’s nifty eateries.
Whether traveling as a group, couple, solo or family, Poipu on Kauai’s South Shore is home to a unique range of choices, from a shack dishing up roadside comfort foods to the finest and freshest upscale cuisine reflecting artistry on a plate. Ambiances as exotic and quietly pleasant as gardens are part of the dining landscape. The ocean’s constant movement makes seaside dining thrilling, with plenty of time to wine and dine while watching waves. Sun-dappled, reminiscent of old Hawaii, Poipu, Kauai restaurants offer dining parallels to dining traditions on the mainland…instead of mint juleps on a wraparound porch try tropical drinks on a wraparound lanai, instead of tapas are amazing pupus.
