We hiked along the beaches and the paved trails for miles and even saw monk seals sunning themselves and whales breaching out in the ocean. There are toilet facilities and showers along the way as well as covered picnic areas.

With Seattle being a home base for us, we use the Green Lake "bike" path often. Well, to me, this is the Kauai version of the GL path. It runs for miles (5+?) along the beautiful coast with a nice collection of sandy beaches with...More

This is a fun way to spend a couple of hours, or longer if you stop for a swim at some of the lovely beaches. The path was paved and fairly level, and the views were just divine. The pineapple dump was very interesting and...More

This path meanders along the coast and is just beautiful (especially heading north out of Kapaa) Easy going, lots of places to run down to the beach- and Pineapple dump lookout is a great place to see turtles! This was really nice!

Let's say I would like to check "jump off a cliff" off my bucket list on this trip to Kauai in a few weeks. Yes, I can swim. I'm a female,age 50+ in decent shape but not superwoman. Suggestions?

Shipwreck Beach has the perfect place for you...past the Hyatt...walk up the cliff and you will be greeted by many.
Can you recommend a nice, clean, budget minded hotel near the East Shore Beach Patch?
