A visit to the island of Kauai is an escape from real life, where the lush island welcomes visitors and offers a variety of incredible activities to fill a vacation. From relaxing one of the island’s stunning beaches to finding adventure along the Na Pali Coast, Kauai offers something for everyone, and is truly a remarkable place to visit.
From adventures that take you to secluded destinations to the most popular things to do on the island, exploring Kauai will be a big part of any trip to the oldest of all Hawaiian Islands. These 5 destinations show off the best of the island, and are sure to make your trip one to remember.
- Kalalau Lookout – found on the northwestern side of the island, the Kalalau Lookout is one of the most picturesque locations on Kauai. The valley is easily accessible and visitors are rewarded with views of Kalalau Beach. For the more active visitors, there are 17 hiking trails found in the area.
- Tunnel of Trees – located on the south South Side of Kauai, this is one of our favorites. The tree-lined road runs from Highway 50 to Old Koloa Town and is covered by a canopy of trees, creating a natural tunnel that is one of the most unique places in Hawaii. A drive down this road makes it hard to believe that you are still in Hawaii.
- Waimea Canyon – the Grand Canyon of the Pacific is one of the must see places on the island, and for good reason. With easy access to lookouts and breathtaking views of one of Hawaii’s most unique features, the Grad Canyon of the Pacific stretches 10 miles wide and 3,000 feet deep, showcasing the diversity of the Hawaiian Islands. The canyon has been a work in progress for thousands of years created by lava flows and years of erosion.
- Taro Fields of Hanalei – the stunning views of the Taro Fields in Hanalei offer views of the island that are reminiscent of the days of ancient Hawaii. The interiors of the islands are as beautiful as the coastline, and the views from the lookout points are breathtaking. The taro fields keep the practices of ancient Hawaii alive and help the islands stay true to its roots.
- Na Pali Coast – the most untouched stretch of Kauai, the gorgeous Na Pali Coast features 14 miles of untouched, lush mountains and valleys, set against the stunning blue Pacific Ocean. The coast features hidden beaches and caves, tucked into the shoreline of the massive sea cliffs, standing as high as 4,000 feet. Kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking are popular activities along the Na Pali Coast, which offers some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Hawaii.
