If life is a journey, then a vacation is the exclamation point to the journey we take. Taking vacations to bucket list destinations is a rite of passage for seasoned travelers and novice travelers alike. But what makes a great vacation destination?
Depending on who you are and what you want to do can determine your vacation destination. Also, if you have a family, you will need to have family-friendly activities to keep the brood busy while you are away.
If your choice is Hawaii for a vacation, Kauai is one of the least developed islands from infrastructure standpoint and has one of America’s most famous beaches, Poipu Beach.
Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder
Poipu Beach was named one of the best beaches in America by the Travel Channel and a university professor in Florida who goes by the handle Dr. Beach echoed that sentiment.
Poipu Beach is a crescent beach that is split into two smaller bays by a sand bar that hosts the monk seal that is an endangered species and quite friendly as aquatic life goes. Between December and May, Humpback Whales have been sighted further off in the bay making it a unique experience when you are at the beach and get to see one of the biggest mammals in the world up close and personal.
The configuration of the beach lends itself to many water sport activities. For people who are new to swimming and water sports, in general, there is a protective cove that is very calm and sedate for swimming and is family-friendly. The other section of the bay is a little more robust, where more experienced swimmers and surfers can test their mettle in the waves that role in from the Pacific Ocean.
Something for Everyone
The beach has local lifeguards on duty daily for swimmer’s protection, and it provides a level of security and peace of mind for families that are vacationing.
For scuba divers and snorkelers, the eastern section of the beach is an activity center to be discovered. Many underwater sights are a cornucopia of color for the eyes with many varieties of fish and other marine life visible in the clear waters.
The biggest claim to fame for Poipu Beach is that it caters to a family-friendly environment. The calm, shallow waters are great for kids to recreate with glittering white sand that just shimmers in the sun. Picnic tables dot the beach that help provide an all-day experience for families that come to the beach for the day, and the scenery is a color palette for the eye.
