Hello travelers! My family of 4 is planning a trip for 9 days over Thanksgiving week this year. We usually stay at Kapaa or Poipu when on Kauai but we all fell in love with Hanalei on our last day trip
to the North Shore a couple of years ago. We are looking at renting a 2 bedroom home in Hanalei within close proximity to the beach and would spend a lot of time in the water. My girls are 12 and 15 and love to play in the sand (still) and are constantly in and out of the water when we are in Hawaii. I know the surf is rougher on the North Shore in the winter months and am concerned about them being able to get in the water often while we are there. One is a decent swimmer the other not so much and they tend to stay waist to chest deep when in the water or are floating on something inflatable. Since we will not have a pool and the ocean being our only source of fun in the water, I wanted to ask and get some feedback?!
