“Kapa'a and north are better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

You land in Lihue, so It's a good place to start. Kalapaki Bay, just outside of Lihue, is nice, but Lihue itself is a pretty motley lot of architecture and rundown businesses. There are a few good restaurants in and around the town, but not much in Lihue itself.

“Specacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

I will probaly never see anything as beautiful and pure as Kauai in my lifetime. The time spent on the island surpassed every expectation my wife and I had before we arrived. Natural, untouched and friendly. Everyday was a day to remember. Mahalo to the Gods of Kauai for a trip of a lifetime.

“Wonderful Play-South Pacific Full Production Musical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

This play just added the icing to the cake. I am so glad I took the time to see this. After all the movie was filmed on Kauai. This was a dinner and play. the food was excellent as well.

“The highlight of a trip to Kauai is definately flying helicoptors with Safari!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

While visiting Kauai be sure and spend the time and money to fly on a helicoptor tour. I have been up several times, through the years, with Safari and highly recommend them as the best choice on the island. Everyone is super friendly, interesting, interested and their safety record can't be beat! And don't let the weather turn you away. It's beautiful and different whether it's rain or shine. More waterfalls when it's rainy make for spectacular views. You know you want to do it....so DO IT!
