Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
Yes, it's Port Allen, in Hanapepe Bay. All yours, Jon.
Port Allen doesn't look much like a cruising destination and has a commercial feel to it. It is a fuel terminal, but also is a base for catamaran tours of this end of Kauai, particularly the spectacular Na Pali coast. Similarly, the airport offers helicopter and plane tours. Just around the corner--about 5 nm away--is Waimea, where Captain Cook became the first European visitor to the Hawaiian islands, which he named the Sandwich islands after the acting First Lord of the Admiralty, in 1778.
