After Kauai we flew to Maui for 5 days. We were xrayed, frisked and our hand luggage extensiviely searched before we left Kauai. Kauai is the forward missile defense area for the US but you would think they would search you on the way in, not the way out. Maybe they have problems with people stealing missiles. Anyway on Maui we stayed at Napili (not to be confused with Napali on Kauai). This is Napili beach shot from the resort/condo's we stayed in.
