5 Reasons You’d Love To Live In Kalaheo

1. Trade Winds Galore

Have you ever noticed that when the sun sets in Kalaheo, it gets a bit more chilly than other parts of Kauai? Kalaheo has a 10-degree drop in temperature during our winter months verses Koloa, Poipu area which allows us to get out our soft blanket and house shoes. It is a very unique part of this island. Sunshine and trade winds all year round, which makes it a very desirable living environment.

2. The Views

If you haven’t seen a sunset from the west side of Kauai, you’re missing out. You’ll see the sunset from start to finish, everything from bright yellows to deep pinks and purples. A very calm way to end your busy days.

3. Close To Amazing Food

You are walking distance from Kalaheo Steak & Ribs and a few food trucks that set up in Kalaheo. Kalaheo Steak House has a wide menu with all of your Bbq favorites. Also, a great Happy hour that also includes the occasional Line dancing. It’s a blast! It’s a must-do even if you’re just visiting.

Salt Pond

4. Outdoor Activities

You are a 10-minute drive from either Salt Pond or the stretch of fabulous Poipu Beaches. You get to decide if you are going to spend your beautiful sunny days on the South shore or the Westside. Salt Pond is named for its traditional Hawaiian salt collecting ponds. Both locations are great spots for snorkeling, fishing, and swimming. Both areas have public parking, bathrooms, and showers.

Poipu Beach

5. Golfing

Last but not least,  you are a 5-minute walk to the Kukuiolono Golf Course. This is a great 9 hole golf course. I love the fact that you can golf with the chickens while you enjoy the panoramic views of the ocean all around you. It’s a very special course to the Locals of Kauai. Affordable, with great food on location (Pacos Tacos).

Great article Nani! We love walking Sally there as you know, and she loves to think she can attack chickens endlessly. LOL.
