Kauai Dining and Entertainment

Kauai is a lush tropical island, the oldest of the Hawaiian chain, as such it attracts some of the best restaurants in Hawaii. Entertainment is not of the variety you would find in a major metropolitan area and instead is a unique blend of modern and hawaiian activities. We have compiled a list here for you of some popular restaurants on the North Shore of Kauai and popular entertainment activities.
