Hanalei Colony Resort
The resort is where we stayed on Kaua'i. It was nice and quiet, not fancy, just comfortable. There are 7 or 8 4-plex buildings ( 2 units on the bottom and 2 on the top ) at the resort. We were in Building D, which overlooked a large grassy area and then the ocean in the distance. D2 was the lower level unit in this photo. Hanalei is on the north shore of the island so the waves can be pretty rough. Several beaches nearby have calm enough areas for swimming. The beach just off of the resort wasn't too bad, but we just stuck to walking around in the surf and making sand castles. The kids didn't like getting all covered with sand, so they preferred the pool. I walked on the beach a bit, but it was quite windy most of the time. The one time I did go in the water was the morning of the wedding, last Thursday the 10th. I had to dump several pounds of sand out of my tankini bottom afterward.
