Makauwahi Cave

I drove out to the Makauwahi Cave yesterday. The cave is interesting though to get through the opening you do need to be a little flexible as it’s not that large. Either crouching or on hands and knees. Though I wasn’t there for the beach Gillian’s beach does look nice and was not crowded at all. One piece of advice the docent at the cave gave is that he advises people to park at the stables an walk from there. I’m sure the stable owners won’t be too happy about that but unless you have an SUV you will have to endure a 1-2 mph knuckle and chassie scraper to reach the parking area.
I also went to the McBryde Garden. It’s a very nice place and if you really want to see it completely take a more leisurely 2 hours to do so. Last pickup is at 5 PM so plan accordingly if you arrive late in the day. The Origin of Life trail is interesting and educational and the Spice of Life trail, though short, is quite thick an jungley and under the right conditions even a little eerie.

What Readers Have to Say

“I am a travel agent and I am finally going to Hawaii for the first time in April. While its my job to know where to go, where to stay, and all the other minor details, I really don’t know that much about how Hawaii (thankfully my clients don’t know that!). Anyway, I bought the Oahu and Kauai books last week to look into the island activities in a bit more detail. I wanted something that wasn’t being sold to me–they way I would with a client! I have found your books to be incredible. You have answered many of my questions, and your unbiased reviews are so helpful to our decision making process. We’ve been able to put together our Oahu itinerary and are now working on Kauai as we are reading your book. I send a lot of clients to Hawaii and have not really been able to recommend a good guide book to them until now. Its also a great gift idea for me to give to a honeymooning client with their tickets. Not only is it easy to read, but its enjoyable too! I enjoy your sarcastic comments sprinkled here and there. Good Job!”
