Why is  everyone critical of the OP? He did what he thought correct and reported back to help others. Let's not make this a popcorn thread
Honestly, I think this is quite calm. And everyone is calling out Dav more than the OP.

Wow. Not that it means much, but throughout your TR, I could not help but be impressed with your self-control and high standards.

Truly remarkable. Hashem should bless you!

OP thanks so much for the post! Enjoyed the TR and I appreciated the comments on tznius from someone who has done it. Not sure what all of the fuss is about. you just told us about your experience.

OP, thanks for taking your time and thanks for addressing the Tznius issue.

Now I can finally start planing a trip to Kauai  :)

It does not require a lot to keep the standards that the OP kept. Of course it would of been much easier to be able to hang out at the pool/beache whenever I want. But it would be cool as well not to have to shlep food and just go down to the local restaurant. That being said, of course Kashret is probably more important than Tznius issues but swimming together with ladies wearing bathing suites is Assur. Im not looking to offend anyone and if someone thinks that when he is taking a vacation he is allowed to enjoy him self I do respect his opinion... But  I just wanna explain the OP and others who wanna go to Hawaii and still stay Kosher that they have a strong reason to keep their standards.

Of course you can have a great time without dipping your toe in the sand or water, but there's no excuse for not finding a private beach on any Hawaiian island at any time of the day.

Just my .02

Exactly. That's what I'm trying to figure out and thanks Joe4007 for the suggestion. And IIRC Hawaii is the place where you can find completely private beaches.

I'm sure you can find private beaches in the Caribbean as well.

I remember in LAX on the way from LA to Tierra Sur we had such a hard time to find a private beach. It really takes away a lot of the vacation if you're not prepared before hand about all the Kashret/Tznus issues. Lesson learned.

You thought in a city of 4MM++ that you would just happen upon a private beach?

Exactly. I thought that somewhere throughout the shore I'll find something. Call me a n00b  ;)
