Kauai Beaches - Lawai Beach in Poipu

Lawai Beach is a small but beautiful sliver of a white sand beach that is located just off the coastal road in the Poipu Resort area. Though it does not have a lifeguard tower it often has suitable conditions for snorkeling and there is plenty to see under the surface. Before entering the water though you should search out good advice from the..

Kauai Beaches - Mahaulepu Beach (this is a dangerous beach for swimming)

In many ways the Mahaulepu Beach experience is more of a hiking adventure than a traditional beach outing. The beautiful sands of Mahaulepu Beach are essentially the hiking path that will take you on a two mile journey starting from Shipwreck Beach in Poipu all the way to the cliffs on the eastern side. This beach is beautiful beyond imagination..

Kauai Beaches - Poipu Beach

One of the most popular beaches on Kauai, and one of the most "people friendly" is Poipu Beach in the midst of the Poipu Resort. It would be a safe guess that the reason the resort is even here at all is because of beautiful Poipu Beach. A number of beaches have been honored with the title of "best beach in the world" by a..

Kauai Beaches - Shipwreck Beach (this is a dangerous beach for swimming)

An incredibly beautiful white sand beach can be found at the eastern end of the Poipu Resort called "Shipwreck Beach".

When I was growing up, I always had a love for all things off road. I don't know if it was because my early childhood years were influenced by the monster truck racing that seemed to always be on TV, or if it had more to do with the childhood adventures on my mountain bike, or if it was a combination of the two. Whatever it was, if it was..

As we pulled up to the beach to go SNUBA diving in Poipu, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I've done quite a bit of SCUBA, Diving but I never did SNUBA before. When I was a kid I used to have a job as an assistant dive instructor for an intro dive company that operated off of the beach in South Maui. From my experiences working there I..

We showed up at the Outfitters Kauai office in Poipu at just before 6AM to check in for their downhill bike trip. The ride goes down the road along the rim of the Waimea Canyon. A couple weeks ago I went on a hike along the opposite rim of the canyon, so I knew what kinds of incredible landscapes we would encounter on today's bike ride. It was a..

I remember for my 12th birthday, the only thing I wanted to do was get certified to go SCUBA Diving (12 is the minimum age you can be to get certified). It was not too long after when I finished all of the class work and got to go under the water and experience what it was like to "breathe like a fish". For me SCUBA diving was something..
