Resort Areas on Kauai Island

An introduction to all of the main resort areas on the island of Kauai and types of accommodations available in those areas.

Kauai's widely varied landscape is equaled only by the diversity of its resort retreats.

Poipu Beach Are3a
Poipu Beach, on the sunny, dry south coast of the island, is blessed with wide, white sand beaches, as well as great weather. Poipu Beach has become the fastest--growing destination on Kauai, with a diverse range of accommodations including bed and breakfasts, cottages, villas, vacation homes, condominiums and hotels. In 2001, Poipu Beach was named "America's Best Beach" by Florida International University Coastal Geologist Stephen Leatherman, also known as Dr. Beach. Poipu Beach is famous for its water sports. An offshore reef protects much of the shoreline, creating ideal diving, surfing, boogie boarding, snorkeling and swimming conditions.

Coconut Coast of Kauai
The Royal Coconut Coast, on Kauai's east coast, is named for its acres of ancient coconut groves. This is where the ancient ali'i (chiefs) once lived and there are still many reminders of their lives to observe today. The Royal Coconut Coast is home to numerous budget and moderate-priced accommodations and many shopping centers and dining options.

West Side of Kauai
The West Side, best known as the place Captain James Cook set foot upon when he first sighted the Hawaiian Islands, offers a fine example of the old-fashioned, plantation-style towns that used to dominate the islands. It's home to the quaint Waimea Plantation Cottages and the charming town of Hanapepe. Recent developments include organized tours of the Gay & Robinson Sugar Plantation and self-guided tours of the new West Kauai Visitor and Technology Center.
