O‘ahu resident and Hawaii expert Kevin Whitton knows the best ways to experience Kaua‘i, from catching waves in Hanalei Bay to watching the sun set over Ni‘ihau from a beach on the West Side. In Moon Kaua‘i, Whitton offers a range of interesting activities for every traveler, with suggested itineraries like “Best Waterfalls,” “Go Green on the Garden Isle,” and “Best Hikes.” Packed with information on dining, transportation, and accommodations, Moon Kaua‘i gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.
Avid surfer and nature-lover Kevin Whitton has traveled extensively throughout Mexico, Indonesia, and Australia. He’s volunteered as a trail guide in a private Costa Rican rainforest preserve and as a snowmobile guide in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. When confronted with the choice between living in the mountains and visiting the beach, or living at the beach and visiting the mountains, Kevin refused to choose, deciding to call O‘ahu home instead. Now when he waits for a wave at one of his favorite windward or North Shore surf breaks, he can gaze at the verdant mountains and revel in the best of both worlds.
