My husband is an avid golfer and I love scenic beauty. The best of both is on the north shore of Kauai. We always play one of the 4 courses in Princeville (see Golf). For me, it’s not a bad way to see some of the tropical plants. Most of what is growing in Kauai now is not native to the island, but the vegetation is beautiful and fragrant. There’s pikake, plumeria, birds of paradise, and even poinsettia hedges that turn solid red during the Christmas season. I see most of my houseplants growing wild on Kauai, and they are larger and more robust than any I’ve seen on the mainland.
Kauai experience: We come to Sealodge on the north shore of Kauai at least once a year. People often ask us what we do in this corner of the island for 3 weeks. Sometimes what we don’t do is more important than what we do. This is a perfect place to relax. We leave the makeup, long pants, shoes, and nylons at home and pack a bathing suit, flip flops, and a sarong. People come to start a new relationship or to patch up old ones. If we choose to, we can get away from phones, TVs, and computers. It’s possible to while away the hours watching for sea turtles on the reef, spotting whales in the winter, listening to the waves break, and letting the tropical air soothe our mainland frustrations.
Once we start to unwind, we can take a morning walk to the public beach at the Princeville Hotel, swim and snorkel in the shallow waters that bathe their coast, have a Mai Tai and a sandwich from their beach front café and nap in the warm afternoon sand. For me, that’s a perfect day.
Sealodge, Kauai: A travelers account: ...On other days we walk from Sealodge on a trail through the trees to Anini Beach. But the best surprise of all is the beach right below Sealodge. Yes, the trail can be steep and is muddy and slippery after a rain. And some folks may want insect repellent at certain times of the year. But it takes us through our own tropical forest along a beautiful, rocky coastline to a beach that is sometimes uninhabited. On one visit we even found a sleeping monk seal. And when the sun is out and the water is calm, the fish are plentiful and their colors so vivid that I feel like I’m filming for National Geographic. Swimming is safe because we are on a reef. We don’t even need to swim to see fish. With rubber water shoes and a mask, we could walk waist deep onto the reef, stick our heads into the water and see the fish. For more adventure, there’s deeper water, bigger fish, and stronger currents at other beaches. (see Beaches/Snorkeling)
Sealodge Kauai Condo is located in Princeville on Kauai's North Shore. The condominium complex, situated along the edge of a 130 foot bluff, is a cluster of nine small three-story natural wood buildings surrounded by acres of lawn and tropical trees and flowers. A steep trail leads down the bluff to a reef-protected beach and excellent snorkeling. Sealodge has a pool with a view of the ocean and a barbecue area nestled in the plumeria trees.
A wide selection of golf courses exists on Kauai. We prefer to stay in the Princeville area and play the 18-hole Prince Course or the 27-hole Makai Course. Both are scenic and challenging. The phone number for tee times is 808-826-5070; a round costs between $100 and $150 depending on what day of the week and time of the day we play.
Other Kauai courses as prestigious as the Prince Course are at the Poipu Bay Resort in Poipu and the Kauai Lagoons Resort in Lihue. Less expensive public courses are the Wailua course which is south of Kapaa, and the Kiahuna Golf Club in Poipu.
Golf club rentals are available at $15/day or $50/week from Boss Frog in Kapaa at 808-700-3764.
