We are coming to Kauai for a week (7 nights 8 days) and staying at Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach for the first five nights. We aren't planning to book accommodations in advance for the last two nights. Is that going to be okay? We just want to get used to the Island the first five days and then stay where we fancy on the last two days. We also thought maybe about just driving around the Island the last two days, though I expect we will have already explored quite a bit the first five days.
Wondering about the weather the first week of June - hot, cold, mild? Lots of rain?
Also, does anyone have a good site for moon cycles in Kauai? I expect we are missing the full moon but I wanted to check.
Also everyone keeps talking about the free things to do and that appeals to us quite a lot as we are on a budget. We have a kitchen and prefer casual dining/food trucks over fancy sit down meals. Can we enjoy a sunset meal without going to one of the very expensive places like the Beach House? I suppose we could just pack a picnic.
I keep hearing about snorkeling, but has anyone been scuba diving in Kauai?
Thank you very much for all of your information.
