Kauai holidays

CAN-DO KAUAI

Smaller than the city of London, with less than 10% of the land accessible by road, Kauai is one of Hawaii’s best-kept secrets. But make no mistake, this tiny island packs a punch. Home to jagged cliffs, emerald-coated mountains and chromatic coral reefs that lie beneath the azure water, you can find colour in every corner on a Kauai holiday.

From the second you arrive on Kauai Island, to the day you depart, your experience will be totally stress free. Think endless days reclining on powder-fine sands, sipping on coconuts and swimming across sun-heated waves. And, when it comes to picking a scenic spot for your day of relaxation, Kauai will leave you spoilt for choice. The north coast is a particular hotspot, adorned with blue sky beaches that poke out from the rich, green rainforest. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet amid pristine scenery, the centrally-located Hanalei Bay is the place to go. Make use of the shallow waters and discover Hawaii’s fascinating marine life with some snorkelling during the day. Or, pack up a picnic and head down to the beach in the evening, where you can watch the sunset over the gently-swaying sailboats.

Of course, if you do want a few action-packed days during your Kauai holiday, there’s plenty here to keep you occupied. The spectacular Waimea Canyon State Park is a must-see for any nature-lover wanting a taste of Hawaii’s incredibly diverse landscape. Hike along the undulating rocky trails, climbing up to one of the park’s marked lookouts, where you’ll be rewarded with uninterrupted views of the sharply-cut canyon. In need of more adventure? Then an after-dark scuba dive is sure to satisfy your inner thrill-seeker. Set out from the star-lit shore for the chance to see parrot fish, shrimp, turtles and, even, octopi, as they sleep within the inky ocean.

Kauai captured your imagination? Get in touch with one of our team to find out more and start creating the Hawaii holiday of a lifetime.

Things to do

A trip to the beach is a must during your Hawaii holiday. And, when it comes to photo-worthy spots in Kauai, Hanalei Bay takes the lead. Perfectly framed by flat-topped mountains, spend the day relaxing on the golden sands, or take a paddleboard out into the bay’s calm waters to fully appreciate the spectacular scenery.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for more thrilling things to do in Kauai, Shipwreck Beach is the place to go. Dare-devils can cliff jump off the infamous Marawehi point, whilst experienced surfers will enjoy the beach’s bigger waves.
If you’re after some time away from the beach, Kauai’s well-kept golf courses are well worth a visit. Catch oceanfront views at Hokuala Kauai resort, or hit up Kauai Miniature Golf and Botanical Garden for a day of family fun.

Nature

Kauai’s beauty is by no means limited to its beaches. And, if you’re in the mood to explore, a daytrip to Waimea Canyon State Park will show you just how diverse Hawaii’s landscape can be. The most popular way of getting round the park is by car. The main road will take you past breath-taking viewpoints, where you can get out and peer into the pit of the canyon. Or, if you fancy a bit of challenge, why not hike along one of the park’s high-incline trails?

Another fantastic spot to discover during your Hawaii holiday is Wailua Falls. Nestled in the heart of Wailua River State Park, this enchanting, double-tiered waterfall is one of Kauai’s top attractions. Marvel at the 85-foot-high falls, before heading to the nearby Wilua River for a laid-back kayaking tour.

Wildlife

If you’re looking to see some of incredible wildlife during your holiday, then a trip to Kauai is ideal. The shores of Poipu Beach are world-famous among animal-lovers, thanks to the chilled-out sea turtles and cheeky monk seals that are often spotted in the area.
If you want a closer look at some of Kauai’s marine life, there are plenty of snorkelling spots dotted around the island’s coastline. Dive into the turquoise water and swim alongside rainbow-coloured coral reefs and an abundance of tropical fish.

And, of course, no holiday to Kauai is complete without embarking on a dolphin or whale-watching tour. Whilst there are plenty of species to see, it’s the humpback whale that catches most people’s attention, known for showing off their playful nature as they jump across the water.

Best time to visit Kauai

With temperatures that rarely dip below the mid-twenties, it always feels like summer in Kauai. The weather stays pretty stable throughout the year, with ample sunshine and clouds that pass quickly. And, whilst it’s always best to expect the odd shower or two during your stay, the lush, green scenery will quickly compensate for any short bursts of rainfall you might experience!

January through to March is a great time to visit. As well as being the prime season for whale-watching, these months also see high swells that are bound to get surfers’ hearts racing. A trip during late-spring and summer has it perks, too. The Lei Day Celebrations in May are a joy to witness, or you can catch food and music festivals throughout the month of June.
