Welcome to Kauai

Your Kauai vacation

Although it's the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands, Kauai still boasts a gorgeously sprawling natural splendor. With lush greenery and picturesque ocean views everywhere you turn, the best things on the Garden Island – from the Alakai Wilderness Area to Moloaa Bay – are free. Better still, a Kauai vacation doesn't have to cost you a mountain of cash. With the help of CheapTickets, you'll be well on your way into the wilderness with these budget-friendly highlights.

Best time to take a vacation to Kauai

The yearly temperatures are very warm in Kauai, only varying by a few degrees through the seasons, and although its location is prone to daily showers, these only last a few minutes. It is worth noting that they occur less frequently on the south side. The best time to visit for deals and to get around the island easier would be in early spring or late fall. The week-long Kauai Festival in September is an annual highlight, as too are the February celebrations of Hawaiian history and the Captain Cook Fun Runs, both in the old plantation town of Waimea.

Popular Kauai experiences

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.

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.

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.

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.
