Many Kauai residents and visitors were saddened to hear the closing of the Prince Golf Course.  As of January 29, 2011 the Prince Course shut down business to undergo several months of renovation.  A complete renovation of the bunkers began in September 2010, and the course is now closed to allow completion of the project along with other planned upgrades.  Reopening is planning for October 2011.

Vacation on Hanalei Bay

Hanalei Bay in my opinion is among the top beaches in the world.  It is the largest bay on the north shore of Kauaʻi island in Hawaii. The town of Hanalei is at the mid-point of the bay.

Hanalei Bay consists of nearly two miles of beach, surrounded by mountains. In the summer, the bay is like glass, offering excellent mooring for sailboats, stand up paddle boarding and swimming. The Princeville community overlooks from the northeast entrance to the bay of Hanalei river, 22°12′52″N 159°29′52″W / 22.21444°N 159.49778°W / 22.21444; -159.49778Coordinates: 22°12′52″N 159°29′52″W / 22.21444°N 159.49778°W / 22.21444; -159.49778. During the winter the surf becomes large and is a favorite surf location.

The Hanalei Pier was first built in 1892 to help Hanalei farmers move their taro crops to market. The covered pier’s location near the mouth of the Hanalei River and Black Pot beach has long been a favorite family gathering place for fishing, picnicking, swimming, and playing.  Hanalei Bay Sunset

On April 5, 1824, King Kamehameha II’s royal yacht, Pride of Hawaii, sank near the mouth of the Waiʻoli River, 22°12′14″N 159°30′37″W / 22.20389°N 159.51028°W / 22.20389; -159.51028 (Waioli River mouth), on the southwest corner of the bay after its crew struck a five-foot deep reef a hundred yards offshore. It is believed the captain and crew were drunk at the time. A large section of the ship’s hull washed ashore in 1844 in a winter storm surge, but most of this historic wreck remains buried in silt in the bay. In 1995-2000, archaeologists from the Smithsonian Institution‘s National Museum of American History excavated the wreck and recovered more than 1,200 artifacts. During this excavation, a 40 foot section of the stern was discovered, documented, and then re-buried where it was discovered.[1]

Japanese author Haruki Murakami wrote a short story entitled “Hanalei Bay” set in the area. The story is included in the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

This is why Hanalei vacation rentals have become so popular over the years.  You’ll find a variety of accommodations in Kauai at price ranges that fit every budget.  So whether you come alone for business, with family, or friends Allure Kauai Vacation Rentals have a perfect place for you.

Hawaii: One of the most popular vacation destinations in the world…

Are you interested in taking a trip with your friends, a family vacation, or a romantic getaway? If so, have you decided where you would like to travel to? If you have yet to choose a destination for your next trip, you are advised to discover Hawaii. After a close examination, you will likely see exactly why Hawaii is considered one of the most popular vacation destinations, in the entire world.

As you may already know, Hawaii is composed of a number of islands. Six of those islands are considered popular vacation destinations. Those islands include the Hawaiian islands of Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, and Hawaii’s Big Island. In fact, the choice that you have, as to where you want to visit, is one of the reasons why Hawaii vacations are so highly sought after. In fact, you don’t even really have to choose just one island. Over the past few years, the popularity of inter-island vacations has skyrocketed. This popularity has lead to the addition of more inter-island flights, as well as affordable prices.

In addition to having a wide variety of different choices, island wise, the beaches are also one of the reasons why Hawaii is considered one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Hawaii is most well-known for its beautiful beaches, many of which have white sandy beaches and clear waters. With Hawaii being a collection of islands, no matter where you travel, you are almost always given the opportunity to enjoy those beaches. In fact, in addition to the views that come along with them, the beach activities that you can enjoy are another one of the many of many reasons why Hawaii vacations come so highly recommended. Those activities include, but are not limited to, fishing, swimming, boating, scuba diving, and surfing.

Hawaii is also a popular vacation destination because of the wide range of overnight accommodations. As previously mentioned, the beaches are what often lure vacationers in. That is why beachfront vacation rentals are so popular in Hawaii. These rentals often include Hawaii beachfront vacation homes and beachfront vacation villas. If you are looking for something a little bit more affordable, you may enjoy a stay at a beachfront hotel or resort. Although Hawaii beaches are part of the attraction, there is also a chance that you may like to stay inland, at a more centralized location. If so, you can also find hotels, resorts, villas, and vacation homes that are not located along the beach, but inland.

The costs of Hawaii vacations are another reason why they are so popular; they can be affordable. Of course, it is always possible to schedule an expensive Hawaii vacation, but it is also possible to make affordable reservations. The cost of a Hawaii vacation will all depend on the reservations that you are interested in making. For instance, if you are looking to book a stay at a vacation villa, you should expect to pay more for your vacation than you would if you wanted to stay at a vacation hotel or resort. The cost of a vacation will also depend on how you make your reservations. If you would like to save the most money, you may want to think about booking your Hawaii vacation reservations through an online travel website or with the purchase of a Hawaii vacation package.

With all of the benefits, you can easily see why Hawaii is known as one of the most popular vacation destinations, in the entire world. If you are interested in taking a Hawaii trip, you will need to start making your vacation reservations. As previously mentioned, these reservations can easily be made online, through an online travel website. For the largest selection of overnight accommodations, you may want to use a Hawaii travel website. These websites are online travel websites that deal specifically with Hawaii vacations.
