Kauai highlights

  • Kaui highlights
  • Waimea Canyon

    Mark Twain once called this place the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" – and he wasn't wrong. You'll have to pick your jaw up from the 3500-feet-deep canyon floor as you gaze over the 10-mile-long stretch of rugged rock faces jutting from the earth. A definite must on any Kauai vacation.

  • Kalalau Trail

    Calling all serious nature lovers and hikers… this is the trail for you. From the abundant greenery to the waterfalls, you will lose yourself in the tranquility. Pull up your bootstraps and get tramping on this 11-mile stretch of heaven along the breathtaking Napali coastline.

  • Prince Kuhio Park

    Home to the "People's Prince" of Hawaii (Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole) in the early 20th century, this historical setting is full of the intriguing history of Kakaniana'ole's colorful life. From the foundations of his home to the royal fishpond and the heiau (ancient place of worship), there is plenty to see and do that won't cost you a royal cent on your Kauai travels.

  • Kilauea National Wildlife Refuge

    Known far and wide as a birdwatcher's paradise, this wildlife refuge is at the northernmost point of the island. From the albatrosses nesting in the cliffs to the Hawaiian monk seals and sea turtles in the azure ocean below, you can take it all in from the famous lighthouse for a nominal fee.

  • Koloa

    This quaint little town was home to Hawaii's very first sugar plantation, dating back to the 19th century. Stumble upon some of the oldest and most charming of buildings in Hawaii. With a laidback vibe and a vibrant arts scene, a visit to Koloa should certainly be on your Kauai travel itinerary.
