Kapaa

Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Kauai  /  Kapaa
Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants. With just 10,000 permanent residents, the town offers visitors a chance to explore a lush Hawaiian landscape without the pitfalls of mass tourism. You can drop by the town to do some shopping and sightseeing or grab a warm meal after a day at the beach, but to discover the laid-back lifestyle of this Hawaiian gem, explore the less-touristy residential areas. The easiest way to learn about the local culture may be to join some natives of Kapaa picnicking at the quiet beaches on the town's southern end. Put Kapaa at the heart of your travel plans by using our United States family vacation planner.
