Where I stayed
and fresh sushi. What more could you ask for on an island vacation?
We were staying right across from the Poipu State park, so we took a quick walk on our first full day in Hawaii. Right away, we saw three adorable monk seals chilling on the beach. We even spotted 3 giant green sea turtles, which bode well for spotting great wildlife on our trip! We head in to town to rent cheap snorkel gear from Snorkel Bob's. and picked up a few bottles of wine (including a terrible local pineapple wine) at The Wine Shop.
On our second day, we found a fabulous fish market on the north side of the island. http://www.hanaleidolphin.com/fishmarket.html. We picked up some fantastic freshly made poke (basically raw tuna with some soy sauce and scallions) for our sunset picnic. We also got a tasty bottle of fish marinade, which we were able to use to grill fish back at the timeshare. The 2 hour drive to the Napali coast took longer than expected, but the views from the Kablua trail were worth it. We didn't have time to hike past the first beach to get to the falls, but we had a nice swim at Ke'e beach. We made a quick stop at the Kiluea Light house, which had a nice view but unfortunately the wildlife refuge was closed.
