The lighthouse (you can stop on the way to the trail/Ke'e beach etc.)

Ke'e Beach has a beautiful view of sunset

Going up north either Sunday or Monday. Unfortunately the lighthouse is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Seems like ke'e is the big winner. I want to start my day at kalalau trail and work my way back.  So will definitely hang out/snorkeling by ke'el after the Kalalau trail. Is it worth doubling back there after Queens bath to see sunset? Is there anything closer to Queens bath thats a good place for sunset?

How about the wet/dry caves. Any point of visiting?

I am going up north for one day. Hoping to do kalalau trail (just the 2 miles until the beach), tunnels beach and the queens bath. Anything else up north that I cant miss? A nicer beach than tunnels for chilling/snorkeling? Also heard there is a nice bar and view by the st regis for sunset. Any better recommendations for a nicer place to see sunset?

Went to a new cafe(?) called Bubble bam today. On kings highway off the corner of east 8th. The food was excellent. My wife and I split a bubble waffle that had strawberries inside of it as well as pistachio ice cream, candied pecans, cinnamon and honey on top. There are a ton of different options to put into the waffles but we just went with one of the suggested options (we just swiped out bananas for strawberries). We also split a grilled vegetable panini that was great.

We then tried the bubble tea which is tea with tapioca flavored pearls in them. You pick a type of tea (black, green or white) as well as a flavor and what type of pearls. While I didnt think it was bad, I didn't get the hype. Maybe I got the wrong flavor. Definitely worth checking out to try something new! Hecsher is the Vaad of Flatbush .

Oy, you don't get it. Over there it was just South American people getting infected. Big deal. If an institution like Disney gets affected? That's a real problem

That doesn't mean it won't happen. It's been SA and Caribbean's worst nightmare already.

Obviously it can happen anywhere. And its absolutely horrible whats happening in SA and the Caribbean. I was just stating how overcautious Disney was.

What about orlando. Any risk whatsoever?

No reported cases at all in Orlando. I was in Disney in January and there were free mosquitoe repellent everywhere. Would be Disney's biggest nightmare to have a zika outbreak in Orlando

They have a store in the Wailea shops (and in the other islands as well). Certified under Go kosher Hawaii which is affiliated with Chabad of Hawaii. Chalav Stam

Has anyone visited the Island Gourmet Market in the Wailea shops? Do they have any kosher food? As its right by my hotel I would like to skip the usual Costco/walmart/target stop off after a long flight.

This is my entire point, but in reference to the forecast. There's no such thing as a practical weather forecast in Hawaii. What they say has nothing in common with the facts on the ground.

You should be able to find out ahead of time of the KT is closed. Also, going to the north shore and missing out on the KT is not a waste, there's still tons to do and see. In fact everyone should go to the north, regardless if they plan on doing the KT or not.
Im 100% going up North. However, its not set in stone which day I will go up north. That decision will be made directly due to the weather forecast. So was just trying to see if there was a reliable and accurate weather app for Maui and Kauai.

KT is lovely and sometimes rainy, which is lovely as well.
RTH is lovely and sometimes rainy, which is lovely as well.
Haleakala is cold and windy and sometimes clouded in.

That's all the forecast you need. Unless there's a hurricane any and all forecasts could now be completely ignored.
Problem with that is that sometimes it rains so much at kalalau that they close the trail. I would rather not shelp all the way north and find out its closed. An accurate forecast would help me decide which day to go. Same can be said about haleakala. If it's pouring would rather not drive 2 plus hours and can't see anything. So while I understand you can say ignore the forecast, practically that doesn't work.

103
What's the best website and/or app to check the weather? Specifically to check the Kalalau trail in Kauai, road to Hana and haleakala summit in Maui
