  • Kalalau Valley-end of trail

    by Hawaii-5-0 Written Aug 31, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of the trail is Kalalau Valley; A huge wide open sweeping valley with a huge waterfall tucked deep in the valley.You can rest and relax after making the 11 mile hike.If you enjoy solitude and meditation, listen to the surf, listen to the land and listen to the walls of the valley. They will speak to you.It is truely a spiritual/religious experience. You will leave the valley a different person and the 11 mile trip out will seem much shorter.

    Hawaiian music

    by GlobalMatt Written Oct 4, 2006

    The ukelele is the most recognized instrument when someone thinks of Hawaiian music. Here's a local singing Hawaiian folk songs and playing a ukelele at Gaylord's Restaurant outside of Lihue, Kaua'i.

    This is a custom most common to Hawaiins and it is a great show to see.

    Beautiful costumes from their culture.

    Life is Hawaii is truly much slower and less hectic than most places. Do not be in a hurry and do not expect others to hurry for you. Slow down, be patient, and experience the aloha!
