Fun Things to Do in Kauai
The beaches of Kauai are stunning. You can easily spend hours, days (maybe weeks!) just lounging around or beach hopping.
But with so many natural wonders – from immense canyons and serene rivers to emerald forests and Eden-like gardens – there are oodles of other things to do in Kauai, besides chilling on the beach.
The garden isle of Kauai has snagged a special spot in our hearts. Can you blame us? It’s just so darn picturesque!
Take a Kauai helicopter tour
Scenic helicopter tours in Kauai are perhaps the best way to get a megadose of the island’s beauty. (Choose a “no doors” chopper – awesome pictures and more fun)!
Go tubing in sugar plantation canals
This Kauai adventure has you floating down gently-flowing waters on former plantation lands in the island’s lush remote interior.
Learn about monk seals
They’re cute and gentle, weigh from 400 to 600 pounds, have folds of skin around their neck and tend to live alone.
Savor seafood at Red Salt
The menu focuses on fresh Hawaiian seafood and local flavors. Think spicy seared ahi and ono with King crab hash.
Visit the Allerton-McBryde botanical gardens
On a guided tour, stroll through a cool bamboo forest and outdoor “rooms” with fountains and rippling pools.
