Kauai is just a short flight (less than one hour) from Maui. Because everything is spread out, you'll most likely want to rent a car in order to make the most of your experience. Driving in to Poipu on State Highway 520, you'll be welcomed by the Tree Tunnel, which consists of 500 Eucalyptus trees.
Sheraton Kauai Resort
We stayed at the Sheraton Kauai Resort in Poipu. It had a great view of the beach and lots of shopping nearby. Poipu is known to be sunnier compared to other parts of the island (unfortunately, the northern shore of Kauai had flooded prior to our arrival).
