Fun for the whole family: Kauai Mini Golf
by Katie Twaddle
When visiting Kauai, the thing that is least surprising is the desire to relax while enjoying the view.
While you might spend a day at the beach, or on a boat ride up the NaPali Coast, golfing is the activity on many peoples minds. But for those of you who have children, sometimes that round of 18 isn’t a likely option. But don’t be discouraged. Allow me to introduce you to a little gem on the Garden Island: Kauai Mini Golf. Located on Kauai’s north shore in the town of Kilauea, Kauai Mini Golf is a wonderfully designed mini golf course. It has 18 challenging and fun holes, a mountain range view, and a café for the jet-lagged which serves up healthy wraps for those that may feel a little guilty from indulging in a bit too much lau-lau at the luau last night. This course has it all, including the place you want to go, but no one else is really into: a botanical garden. That’s right! While the kids practice the perfect putt, you are patiently waiting your turn, checking out the information on Kauai’s tropical trees, fruits, herbs and veggies you’ve seen since you arrived on the island.
With the sweet scent of the flowers, herbs and ripe guava surrounding you, you’re sure to get that hole-in-one (Somebody’s got to get a hole-in-one, right?). Afterwards, reward yourself with some POG (pineapple, orange, guava) gelato in yes, the sugary kids cone because you’re on vacation! Then sit back, relax, enjoy the stunning views and watch the children play on the jungle gym until they drop. I have a feeling the drive back to the hotel will be a peaceful one
