Is there lodging on a beach in Kauai which has good snorkeling in January? Preferably where you can walk on the sand right into the water?
We are planning our annual January anniversary trip. Haven't been to Kauai for over 20 years! Our previous trip to gorgeous Kauai was in June. This will be a January trip.
Snorkeling isn't the main focus of our trip. But we do love to snorkel on a couple of mornings, and it is most relaxing if we can wake up early, and walk right out of our lodging, and into the water.
We will have a rental car to explore the island as well. We LOVED Kauai over 20 years ago, but have never been to Kauai in January.
Last January, I fell in love with the Big Island. We have also enjoyed Maui in January one year. Have never been to Oahu, but I dislike the sight of Honolulu area from the air...looks like Los Angeles. (I live in Southern California.)
I think Kauai would be our best match this year. We would probably split our stay so that we could spend some nights on the green wet north side of the island. Always love the green wet side of tropical islands. (Love Hana area on Maui and Hilo area on BI.) But also want to spend some nights on a calm beach, safe for snorkeling...which I assume would be south shore on Kauai in January??
I came across an old thread on this subject but it was 2011. I'm looking for the most updated info as things can change.
I appreciate your advice!
