The world's recent shutdown on travel gave the The Garden Isle almost two years of COVID-quietness. Tourism is Kauai's Number 1 industry, and without it for so long, the impact was felt far and wide. For many, two years felt like ten!
Now, with airline mandates being altered, allowing more "controlled freedoms" for those headed towards the 50th State, Hawaii (with its Safe Travels Program) and the County of Kauai are refreshing the inbound travel requirements for visitors and returning residents.

There seems to be a revitalized sense in the air welcoming tourism back with many open arms.
One of Kauai's major drawing cards is the beauty and serenity of its South Shore. Offering two stunning, 18-hole golf courses, unrivaled snorkeling opportunities, hiking, boating and sunning, the Poipu Beach area is rich in activities, walks on the beach during one of the Island's typically magnificent sunsets, and just plain R&R.
The South Shore also provides visitors, and residents alike, with some of the entire Island's most noteworthy and awesome restaurants, coffee & cocktail bars, unique eateries and a host of memorable one-stops for that quick bite.
There are a number of reliable, quality resources of online information out there to peruse. One great place to browse is the Hawaii Tourism Authority / Kauai South Shore.
As a newcomer, repeat guest or resident, experiencing all that Kauai's South Shore has to offer should be on everyone's Destination List.
