Kauai can be a challenge for even the most tried and true hiker. Whether tackling the infamous Na Pali Coast on a 17-mile shoreline jaunt, or the "short" Heritage trail, you'll encounter natural wonders to make the effort worth it. Keep your camera handy for both the towering emerald pinnacles as well as the endangered Hawaiian monk seals.
Enjoy some of the world's best golf surrounded by expansive mountains, lush greenery and breathtaking ocean views. Lava rocks line the fairways of where even PGA legends are known to play. Choose from Kauai's ten courses, both affordable and resort, and soak in the salty air and mountainous backdrop.
Kauai's colorful coastline is arguably best seen from the water. Na Pali's towering cliffs drop thousands of feet straight into the ocean; a catamaran takes visitors to what would otherwise be an impossible viewpoint, and you'll catch grottoes and waterfalls as well.
