Foodies flock to A Pacific Cafe (it’s tucked into a Coconut Coast shopping center) for island treats like the Firecracker.
Salmon Roll with chili vinaigrette and papaya salad. Try anything from the kiawe (mesquite) woodbuming grill. Entrees from $16; 808-822-0013.
Moderately priced Caffe Coco, on the Coconut Coast, boasts dinner choices like fresh ahi tuna, seared and served over organic greens. It’s BYOB, so pick up a bottle of wine on the way. A must for vegetarians. Entrees from $19; 808-822-7990.
Reserve a patio table at Princeville’s Cafe Hanalei and gaze at Hanalei Bay and Na Pali. The broiled freshwater eel, served over steamed rice in an elegant lacquer box, is a seafood lover’s delight, while no-nonsense partners tuck into top-notch Black Angus rib eye. Entrees from $21; 808-826-9644.
Nothing’s more American than a burger. And nothing’s more Hawaiian than Duane’s Ono-Char Burger stand in Anahola. Try the Local Girl (topped with teriyaki, Swiss, pineapple, and mayo). Entrees from $4; 808-822-9181.
SIGHTS TO SEE Island Helicopters runs a tour that crests the Manawaiopuna Falls, Na Pali Coast, and Mount Waialeale crater. 800-829-5999 or islandhelicopters.com.
See the cliffs, cascades, and hidden beaches of Na Pali with HoloHolo Charters. Snorkel off “forbidden” Niihau island; winter and spring cruisers often spot whales. 800-848-6130 or holoholocharters.com.
Beginner kayakers can paddle down the Huleia River or ride Hanalei Bay waves; experts can tackle the Na Pali challenge. Kayak Kauai Outbound offers tours and rentals. 800-437-3507 or kayakkauai.com.
Eyeball locations from Jurassic Park III or see Tattoo’s “de plane! de plane!” viewing post from Fantasy Island with Hawaii Movie Tours. Kauai is one big gorgeous backdrop, so this romp goes beyond movies to offer a fabulous island overview. 800-628-8432 or hawaiimovietour.com.
ISLAND MUST-DOS Smile a lot and say “aloha” (which means hello, welcome, or goodbye), and “mahalo” (thank you).
Visit Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge to spy on seabirds, dolphins, and humpback whales. For total cuteness overload, search for fuzzy bunches of newly: hatched chicks during spring and summer. (They’re all over Kauai.)
Seek solitude and sunshine at Polihale State Park, on the west coast. The wide-open beach past the cane fields is usually empty. Stay out of the water in all but the calmest conditions, since there’s no reef to temper the waves.
