Eat healthy on your Kauai vacation

I know how important food is, especially for those on vacation.  Forget about the fast food restaurants and think healthy, and eat well.  Hawaii is known to have some of the best tasting fish in the world, and if you love fish, you will love the Kilauea Fish Market.  A gold mine in my opinion.  So if you’re staying on the  north shore or in a Poipu vacation rental be sure to stop by the Kilauea Fish Market, located in the historic stone building right off Lighthouse road.  It is highly recommended and so yummy, you gotta try it.  They have a mouth watering menu that will keep you coming back for more.  Talk about ‘grinds’.  Fresh fish wraps, organic salads, local plate lunches, fresh island fish poke, local grown meats, and more.  My ultimate favorite, seared Ahi poke salad, served with their signature creamy oriental salad dressing.  I can never have enough of it.  Oh and the staff are always very friendly.  Now open 11 pm to 8 pm.  It is best to call in your order.  They get really busy at all times of the day.  They’ll have your food ready by the time you arrive.  Otherwise, you can drop in and order. While waiting, browse around.  You’ll find a small clothing boutique, real estate office, health food store, hair salon, and ice cream shop shop.  No attire is required.  Casual dining with covered outdoor seating.  What better way to spend your vacation on Kauai.  Combine a wonderful Kauai vacation rental and good healthy food is what really makes for a healthy vacation.  Relax, eat, and enjoy!

Kauai Travel Tips

Kauai (or, more properly, Kaua’i)  is the northwestern most and oldest of Hawaii’s major islands. Called the Garden Island, it is covered with lush greenery and tropical plants, watered regularly by abundant rainfall. As the oldest of the islands, it has been changed the most by the forces of erosion, and this has resulted in natural wonders such as Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Coast. It is also home to more sandy beaches than any other major island in the Hawaiian chain.
