Lush greenery, entrancing seascapes & picturesque picnics await. The parks on Kauai can be both serene and activity-filled, with hiking and plum picking available in one park, shore fishing and ancient sea caves in another. If quiet is what you seek, relax in a grove of mangos and bird-watch.
Historical Sites & Museums
A museum, a lighthouse, military fort ruins and a sleep little town: all offer peeks into Kauai's rich history. Learn about plant life, visit a sea bird sanctuary, view relics of a Russian design, or visit with locals at a ukelele concert.
Waterfalls & Caves
"Fantasy Island" comes to life on Kauai, where the show's famous opening was filmed, and where you'll find hidden waterfalls, cascading streams and a certain exotic cave framed by rings of wild fern.
Gardens & Farms
Kauai's rich history in plantations and farms delivers an eclectic mix of flora for island visitors to explore. Choose from learning about taro grown in lava rock terraces, self-guided tours of coffee estates, or a museum that takes you back to the heydays of a sugar plantation.
From deep canyons and awe-inspiring mountain tops to the salty spray of the Pacific, Kauai's sight-seeing evokes both the Grand Canyon and the humpback whale. Visit Spouting Horn to catch the lava tubes, and Waimea Canyon for its stunning views at 3,600 feet.
Soak up the sun or splash in the surf at these popular spots. Kauai offers the best of both worlds, with family-friendly "pools" for children to play away the day, and straight-from-the-shore whale-watching and sea turtle spotting.
