Even when the surf gets choppy, novice snorkelers can go fish peeping at Poipu Beach, the resort strip on the southern coast of Kauai. Sun is also likely even during major storms since this arid coast gets less than 20 inches of rain per year - compared to around 40 FEET in the center of the island. Driving directions, kayaking and surf spots start on page 119 in your Kauai Trailblazer guidebook.
