While everyone wants to come to Kauai during the summer or winter holidays, visiting the island in the fall means less crowds, lower rates, and great weather. One of the best places to visit or stay during that time is Poipu Beach, which rated one of America’s best beaches. This beach features a series of golden sand crescents, strung together where people will find snorkeling, swimming, boogie-boarding and surfing, and a natural ocean wading pool. Don’t forget to check out the wide variety of stores, restaurants, and resorts that are right down the street.

Visitors to Maui’s south side may find a pleasant surprise in the form of two of its newest restaurants. Shearwater Tavern, in Kihei’s Azeka Shopping Center, specializes in locally-sourced “modern, shareable comfort food” and local craft beer. Daily happy hours, from 5 to 6 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to midnight, provide ideal opportunities to sample signature cocktails and appetizers at a discounted price. Just a few miles south in the Shops at Wailea, The Pint & Cork gives diners a chance to try local cuisine like grilled octopus, or stick with familiar favorites like salads, burgers and steaks. The gastropub’s fun atmosphere and large TVs also make it the perfect place to catch sporting events. Visit shearwatermaui.com and thepintandcork.com for additional information.
