Many people who travel to Kauai seek a retreat on the North Shore in remotes places like Hanalei and Wainiha. Some tourists have heard that Poipu is the dry sunny side of the island and Poipu is where many vacation rentals and hotels are, so that's where they stay. BUT, what about the West Side? Today's Garden Island paper has an editorial piece that will give you a little insight into Kauai's west side and what we mean when we talk about the west side of Kauai.
Where does west Kaua‘i begin, and what does that geographical reference include?
If you’re talking to Rhoda Libre-Hayton, who chairs the Kaua’i Westside Watershed Council, it encompasses the area referred to as the Kona District of this island.
The trek is definitely “down-home, country-style, and rural-to-the-max” as one can eventually get all the way to Polihale if one stays at sea-level or if one opts to head up for higher ground to the Koke‘e mountains, the crown jewel of Na Pali Coast. In turn, west Kaua‘i is a mixture of honored traditions and innovative transitions as well as being a series of random delights that range from serene to spectacular.
