Best things to do in Kauai County

Natural Feature
“Anini boasts the longest and widest fringing reef in the Hawaiian Islands and because of the unique conditions it usually has well protected waters and some of the most consistent conditions for water activities. Enjoy snorkeling, beach walks, picnicking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Anini beach is known to have strong currents in the channels and outside the protective reef. Always use caution especially during high surf.”

“The Na Pali Coast is a very special place. The pali, or cliffs, provide a rugged grandeur of deep, narrow valleys ending abruptly at the sea. Waterfalls and swift flowing streams continue to cut these narrow valleys while the sea carves cliffs at their mouths. Extensive stone walled terraces can still be found on the valley bottoms where Hawaiians once lived and cultivated taro. Enjoy the incredible beauty of the Napali coast by boat, helicopter or for the fit and adventurous on your own two feet! The trail is graded but almost never level as it crosses above towering sea cliffs and through lush valleys. The trail drops to sea level at the beaches of Hanakapi'ai and Kalalau. The Kalalau Trail is an 11 mile trail that leads from Ke'e Beach to Kalalau Beach. Originally built in the late 1800s, portions of the trail were rebuilt in the 1930s. A similar foot trail linked earlier Hawaiian settlements along the coastline. For most backpackers in good condition hiking the 11 miles will take a full day.”

Museum
“"History" isn't a word that necessarily exudes excitement, more-so drawn-out speeches and grainy, black-and-white photos. Can it be boring? Well, sure, but that's just me and my hours of lecture classes talking. Besides, not many people care to put effort into learning about what has already happened hundreds of years ago; people want to focus on the "now" and what's to come ahead. Except, eventually you realize everything, both present and future, is the result of the precedence. Take a look at Kauai; you see the towns, the people, and the culture mix, they’re all a result of historic events. Imagine if Hawaii's monarchy weren't overthrown in 1893, can you picture the islands not being a part of the U.S and still being ruled by kings and queens? Crazy, right? There's one place on Kauai to learn about this and so much more. The Kauai Museum is located on Rice Street, just a few minutes away from the Lihue Airport. The dated, but timeless, architecture make it instantly recognizable for passersby. The museum is open everyday, except Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm. Inside you will discover various artifacts, exhibits, and murals, ranging from the ancient Hawaiian times, early sugar plantation life, and World War II. There is a gift shop for special keepsakes to take home. History can be a fun experience by being just that, an experience. Visualize traveling to Machu Picchu, the Pyramids of Giza, or Stonehenge, they create wonder and interest because it's all right there in front of you. That's what museums look to accomplish, to give the perception of physically stepping back in time.”

“Not one to miss! Go directly before sunset to enjoy the beautiful scenery and…a large flock of parrots that fly to the palm trees surrounding the restaurant. Early risers can also watch the parrots leave at dawn. You do not have to eat at the restaurant. Just need to be in the vicinity. It is a bit pricey but the food, view, parrots and service make it worthwhile. ”

“(Expected to reopen June 2019) Kee beach is located at the start of the Kalalau Trail at the end of the highway. Ke'e beach is very beautiful with the backdrop of Bali Hai and emerald green waters. The snorkeling at Ke'e beach is good during the summer when the ocean is calm. In the winter months be prepared for large swells and rough conditions. Facilities and Lifeguard are available.”

“Tunnels beach is one of the best snorkeling beaches on Kauai especially during the summer months when the ocean is calm. It is also one of the most scenic beaches on the island with a beautiful mountain backdrop and views of Bali Hai. This is a popular surfing and kite-surfing area for experienced surfers. Be aware of strong rip currents in the winter months and also in the Summer when the ocean appears to be calm. Tunnels Beach meets up with Haena Beach Park where facilities and a Lifeguard are available.”

“Very professionally done. We like the family atmosphere of the Smith's Family Garden Luau but this luau is also great in a different way. Food is very good!”
