8 things to do in Kauai when you’re not lying on the beach

Poipu beach KauaiThe sun is shining.  The waves are crashing.  And the cares of the world are far behind you.  You are lying on a beach in Hawaii.  So why would you want to find things to do in Kauai when paradise is right in front of you?

I like a beautiful beach as much as the next person.  However, even on a beach vacation I want to explore and find other things to do.  I do have some travel confessions to make – the beach isn’t one of my favorite spots.  However, beach vacations in places like Kauai are an exception.

Maybe you are like me and want to get the sand out of your shoes (and other places), enjoy the outdoors, eat some Hawaiian food or seafood, and have some fun on land as well.

Maybe you prefer to spend every day on the beach, working on your tan, and cooling off in the turquoise blue waters as waves massage away your worries.  A good book, your favorite beverage, and the Aloha spirit are your best companions as the warm sand tickles your toes.

Just in case you decide to leave paradise behind, here are a few things to do in Kauai that will satisfy your appetite, renew your sense of adventure, and give you a greater appreciation of its all around beauty.

When life’s not a beach – fun things to do in Kauai

While the island of Kauai isn’t very big, you will need some transportation to help you get around and explore.  Once you’ve done that, your best mode of transportation will be your own two hands and feet.

Warning:  These activities may create a greater desire for adventure and alter your plans for a beach vacation.  Please note the potential risk associated with these activities – fewer days on the beach. 

Kayaking the Wailua River

Even for a beginner, kayaking the Wailua River is easy and relaxing.  The sources of water for the river are two waterfalls and Mount Waialeale – the wettest spot on earth (over 400 inches of rain a year!).

The easiest access point is on the east side of the island near Kapa’a.  This is Wailua State Park.  This is the only navigable river in Hawaii.  You will be so relaxed and in love with your surroundings you will be floating in your own version of “It’s a small world” (with lots of paddling and without the Disney characters) .

For the more adventurous, you can kayak to the Fern Grotto.  For the more leisurely route, enjoy the river on a boat tour.

Either way, the Wailua River is a nice way to explore the heart of Kauai.

Wailua Falls

If you would rather go to the source of the river itself, Wailua Falls is a spectacular waterfall in Kauai that offers a torrent of gushing water which drops over the ridge and down into the river.

Just a few minutes from Lihue, you can enjoy your own piece of Fantasy Island (the waterfalls were featured in the TV show) which is easily visible from the road.  From Lihue, take Maalo Road in Hanamaulu for three miles.  Park the car, fight the crowds, and enjoy paradise (and maybe even a rainbow).

And if you enjoy Wailua Falls, Opaeka’a Falls isn’t too far away.

Hiking the Na Pali coast

You can’t have a list of things to do in Kauai without featuring the Na Pali coast.  Whether you hike it, take a helicopter tour, or take a boat, the majestic cliffs of Na Pali tower over the coastline like giants stepping out of a forest.

Or if you’ve seen Jurassic Park, they’re like large scary dinosaurs that eat people.  OK so the mountains on the Na Pali coast don’t eat anyone but will you be swallowed up by their beauty.

Hiking the Na Pali coast isn’t easy.  The trails are listed as a strenuous hike.  The trail head begins at Ke’e Beach in the northern part of the island and continues for 11 miles to Kalalau Beach.

There is a 2 mile hike to Hanakapiai Beach and another 2 miles to Hanakapiai Falls.  For those who love to hike, this would be a great way to see the rugged coastline, jaw dropping views, and some waterfalls.  Just be careful and give yourself plenty of time for the hike.

For those that aren’t up for a strenuous hike, just hiking a little ways down the trail can lead you to some spectacular views.  So do a quick hike, enjoy the views, and then see the coast by sea or air.

Advice:  Hiking beyond Hanakapiai Falls requires a permit.  Guided hiking tours and camping are available.  The 11 mile hike can’t be done in a day and would require an overnight stay.  The trail contains numerous elevation changes and can be slippery, rocky, and dangerous.

Snorkeling along the Na Pali coast

If you want to get up close and personal with Na Pali, consider taking a raft or boat tour of the coastline.  Most of these tours include snorkeling near the Pristine Coral Reef and a visit to one of the caves.

For my tour, I chose Na Pali Explorer.  Leaving from the town of Waimea, the boat ride is a bumpy, fast paced trek across the water to the Na Pali coast.  Along the way, you may encounter some dolphins and even some whales in the winter time.

Note that this ride can be very bumpy and tours are subject to cancellation based on the weather and conditions.  Early morning tours at 6:30 am giving you the best weather, a chance to see dolphins, and what everyone wants – an early morning wake up call while you are on vacation!

These tours can go for as low as $75 per person but prices may vary based on the type of tour.  This is definitely one of the best ways to experience Na Pali up close and make some new friends with sea turtles and dolphins.

Advice:  Note these tours are not for everyone.  The ride can be extremely bumpy so if you have back problems or you are pregnant, this is not advised.

Polihale Beach State Park

Do you want to see one of the western most points in Hawaii?  How do deserted beaches and long stretches of sand sound?  Do you enjoy four wheeling over poorly marked bumpy, dirt roads through sugar cane fields?

Then do I have the place for you!

Polihale State Park is a beach that is several miles long in a remote area of Kauai.  Most of the swimming in the area isn’t safe but if you ever dreamed of long walks on the beach (and I mean really long walks on the beach), then this is your kind of beach.

You can access the beach from the town of Kekaha as you take the long, unmarked dirt road.  Camping is allowed on the beach but the water is dangerous.  No swimming or surfing is permitted here (the only safe area to swim is Queen’s Pond).

OK so one of the things to do in Kauai takes you back to the beach.  However, this is the wild, untamed beach.  You could film your own version of Survivor here.  And just to the north of Polihale Beach, you are reminded of how wild it is as you look upon the Na Pali coast.

Warning:  Vehicles are allowed on the beach.  However, road conditions to the park vary and are not always easy to navigate.  Four wheel drive is the best way so use your rental car at your own risk.

The Beach House Restaurant

Now that are are worn out and hungry from kayaking, hiking, and long walks on the beach, you can treat yourself to a meal at one of the best restaurants in Kauai!

If you love seafood, this is the place for you.  If you don’t love seafood, this is the place for you.  If you want to splurge on a meal, enjoy seafood, chicken, burgers, salads, and more with one of the best views you will ever have while eating.

The Beach House Restaurant has a number of outdoor and indoor tables to enjoy your dining experience.  You can check out the menu ahead of time to see what you might like to try.  Call ahead for reservations, especially for dinner.

If you want to enjoy the restaurant on a budget, grab lunch, satisfy your sweet tooth with desserts, or just enjoy drinks with a view.  The Beach House Restaurant is located on the beautiful Poipu Beach.

Kilauea Lighthouse

Here’s another easy one on your list of things to do in Kauai.  This is a postcard moment in Kauai.

Oh sure, I’ve got hundreds of those” you say.

Trust me on this one though.  Or scroll down and look at the photo if you don’t believe me.

This lighthouse was built in 1913 and was used to guide ships to the Orient.  Now this beacon on the northeastern shores of a Kauai guides lots and lots of tourists.

This isn’t a bad thing.  It’s a historic landmark in Kauai and is a great place for bird watching, cliff and ocean views, and dreams of life as a mariner on the ocean.  The visitor’s center provides lots of information about the history but whether you come to learn or enjoy the views, it’s a must see stop on the island.

Located just east of Princeville, take Highway 56 from Anahola and follow the signs to the paved parking lot.  There is plenty of parking – just make sure you’ve got some room on your memory card for a few photos.

Kilauea Lighthouse Kauai

Kuilau Trail

Are you tired yet?  Good because there is still more to see.  While Waimea Canyon is the big name place to hike in Kauai, the east side of the island has some pretty great views as well.

The Kuilau Trail is located in the Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve and is one of a few trails in the area.  The trail is rated as a moderate hike but only has 640 feet of elevation change.  Combine this trail with the Moalepe Trail and you’ve got a total of 4.25 miles to see the wet and green side of Kauai.

On clear days, you can see Mount Waialeale and see the rolling green hills, mountains, and meadows.  Feel free to do your best Sound of Music impression as you frolic through the green grass.

“In an place as beautiful and preserved as this, should I really be horsing around?”

Yes, you should actually.  This area also has equestrian trails where you and your horse can frolic together.  Just be careful as the trail can be slick and muddy at times.

If nothing else, bring a picnic and enjoy the views.

This is Kauai you should visit Hawaii

So have I ruined your beach vacation to Kauai yet?  If I haven’t convinced you to explore the island with my list of things to do in Kauai, feel free to pack your towel, bathing suit or bikini, sunscreen, and head to the beach!

Before you slip your toes back into the sand, maybe there is one more thing you could try.

Pucker up Mr Crab!

Have you ever kissed a crab?

If you’re motivated to explore Kauai with an adventurous spirit, congratulations!  Now pack your hiking boots, snorkel, equestrian riding gear, kayak, and an extra stomach to go along with the towel, bathing suit, and sunscreen.

I’m just kidding – you don’t want to pay the airline fees for your kayak.  You can rent one there.  Also, pack light to save money on vacation (after all, it’s Hawaii – how many clothes do you really need?  You know you’re going to buy one of those Hawaiian shirts when you’re there anyways).

To me, Kauai is the most beautiful island in Hawaii.  Yes, the beaches are great but what makes Kauai so awe-inspiring are all the different places to see and the things to do.

If you check out these things to do in Kauai and don’t agree that it’s worth all the hiking, kayaking, eating, and photo taking, that’s OK too.  Life’s a beach so enjoy it – just don’t forget the sunscreen.

This summer, Expedia wants to help you find the perfect beach for your vacation.  Take this quiz and find the best deals on your beach getaway with the Expedia Summer Sale (or just click on the link to the right to get your customized summer getaway).

Have you been to Kauai?  What other places or activities would you add to this list?

P.S.  When trying to convince others that you have a great list of things to do for a destination, always throw in a couple of photos of cute animals to help convince them

    Nice, light-hearted piece, Jeremy. Makes me want to go there, too – if only it weren’t so bloody far away.
    But if ever I do, I will certainly know where to go now. A hike along the NaPali coast certainly sounds tempting – although perhaps a trifle too hard for Easy Hiker. Time for a change in name, maybe. (“Strenuous Hiker”?)

    • Thanks Michael. I wish I had done the Na Pali hike but I will have to do that next time. Yes, it is a strenuous hike but as I mentioned just walking a little down the trail can give you some great views as well.

      While the Na Pali one is tough, there are lots of easy hikes there as well.

  2. Jan Ross says:

    I loved Kauai when we were there – it seems like the quietest and most peaceful of all the islands. But I have to say I was not impressed with the Wailua River. It was just a river wending through some green trees, not very tropical at all. I felt like we were on a river back home in Kentucky! Maybe we should have gone all the way to the waterfall; that actually looks much more like Hawaii!

    • Jan, that is EXACTLY why I like Kauai. Not only is it beautiful but it’s smaller, quieter, and less touristy (especially if you go off peak).

      As for the Wailua River, I realized it’s not the greatest river but for those who want to try kayaking it’s a good place to try it. It’s very peaceful and relaxing so since you compared it to Kentucky, that may be the kind of relaxed people want in Kauai anyways! :)

      Yes, if you go back you have to see the waterfall although I can’t promise any rainbows. Is there anything else you would add to this list?

  3. inka says:

    You are doing very well with the ‘fun touch’. I like beach, for a little while, then I get restless and need to explore my surroundings. Very nice post and beautiful pictures. Inspiring.

    • Thanks Inka. I am like you – the beach is OK for a bit but not how I want to spend all of my time. I need to get out and explore.

      Do you have a favorite place, beach, or island where you like to explore beyond the beach? Have you been to Hawaii?

  4. These pictures are absolutely gorgeous. As soon as I get home I am going to pin them and claim them as mine *evil laugh* Ha, just kidding! I did not know you have been to Hawaii.

    • Believe it or not, I’ve been to Hawaii three times (Maui 2 times, Kauai once). I hope to go back again this year but to a different spot. However, not sure if I will make it though. I know you love the adventure stuff but any trips to Hawaii for you? There are some great outdoor things to do there!

      • I will probably never go to Hawaii. Too expensive. If I had the money and wanted islands, I would go to the Philippines.

        • Hawaii can definitely be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. I always went in the offseason so airfares weren’t bad. Your accommodations are up to you so you can stay in a nice place or do you thing and camp. Food and transportation may cost you a little but it could be cheaper than the Philippines.

          It’s all a matter of how you want to travel and spend your money. Some places will cost more but they don’t have to break the bank. That’s true with Hawaii too.

  5. What an adventure and exciting journey to Kauai you paint in this article with your prose and pics! Wailua Falls is a must-see on my list…that’s for sure and the Kilauea Lighthouse looks like the coast of Maine! Incredible shots and really enjoyed the humor infused throughout.

    • Thanks Jeff! I got really lucky with the rainbow in my Wailua Falls photo. I can’t guarantee the same results for everyone! :)

      I’ve been up to Maine and have seen what you are talking about. Yes, it looks very similar but feels very different. You know you are in Hawaii when you visit here. Do you have a favorite place in Hawaii that you like to visit?

  6. jade says:

    Wow, Jeremy these are incredible and awesome suggestions. I’d love to go kayaking and snorkeling.. and heck, lay on the beach too! We are planning and going on our first Hawaii vacation to Maui this December but definitely looking for another island to hit up while we ar there… I think Kauai just got moved to the top of the list!

    • I’ve been to Maui twice. I like that too but Kauai is a little quieter and more relaxing. Since this is your first trip, you will love it. The sun is very intense there and even though it won’t be that hot, make sure you use sunscreen.

      When will you be going to Maui? There is a chance I may go to Hawaii again in December as well but not sure yet.

  7. I love Kauai! Unfortunately when we visited it was WAY stormy, so the beaches were torn up and a lot of the views were shrouded in fog. I can’t wait to go back, though.

    • When were you in Kauai? Was it winter time? I’ve heard the rough weather is around January. Definitely go back and see it again though. I went in September and early October and loved it.

      Even though the weather was bad, is there anything you would add to this list?

  8. Leah Travels says:

    I’m not really keen on just laying around on the beach. What a snooze. I’ve not been on Hawaii, but it’s on my list. These look like fine suggestions to me.

    • This surprises me a little. I thought you would enjoy the beach and I am surprised you haven’t been to Hawaii before. I am not one to lay on the beach either. That’s too boring. However, lot of great things to see and do in Hawaii. Kauai is a bit more quiet than some of the other islands. I also think it’s the most beautiful too.

  9. I love the beach but I’d get bored after a few hours. A hike’d be just the ticket. That lighthouse is definitely picturesque.

    • Same here. I am not a beach kind of person. Maybe it’s because I grew up at the beach. Maybe it’s because I’m a really white boy who burns easily. I will hang out for a bit but prefer to explore.

      Kauai is the perfect place for that! Have you been to any of the islands in Hawaii?

      I am going on another great hike this weekend – it may be my best one yet in California!

  10. Travis says:

    How I wish I can do everything you mentioned in this post. It has been my dream to visit Kauai and to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    • Kauai is definitely beautiful. I like it because it is also quieter and not as touristy as some of the other islands.

      Have you been to any of the other Hawaiian islands?

  11. Great photos and ideas. Kauai is very special to me — spent our honeymoon and an anniversary there. The Beach House restaurant is wonderful.

    • Thanks Cathy! I like Kauai as well. I’ve also been to Maui but I liked Kauai a lot better. The food at the Beach House Restaurant was delicious! Believe it or not, I don’t get seafood very often so it was a real treat to eat there. Not something I can afford to do very often though! :)

      Have you been anywhere else in Hawaii or just Kauai?

  12. LOVE Kauai, and your suggestions and photos are awesome! Hiking the Napali Coast is a must. If you’re not the hiking sort, viewing it on a dinner cruise is also nice :-) We also enjoyed the Beach House restaurant.

    I have to admit that I spent a good portion of time lying (and snorkeling) on Poipu Beach during our visit, but we also had fun visiting other beaches and driving/hiking up Waimea Canyon. I would also highly recommend visiting the Hindu Monastery and Temple and eating shave ice in Kapa’a :-)

    • Thanks Andi. Admittedly, I haven’t done as much of the Na Pali hiking trail as I would have liked. I ended up going late in the day (as you can tell by the sunset photo) and never had a chance to go back. I did get a different perspective of the coast on the raft and snorkeling tour though. If I make it back there, I will have to do the hike.

      As for Poipu, I know a lot of people love that beach and it is popular for snorkeling. I didn’t mention that because I think the snorkeling near Na Pali is better. However, if people can’t make it out there Poipu is a good spot. So rather than focus on snorkeling, I focused on the food and the view! :)

      I didn’t get a chance to do Waimea Canyon either as I did the other side instead. Definitely a great recommendation also as people can’t go wrong with a hike there. I stayed in Kapa’a and didn’t try shaved ice. And I had never heard of the Hindue Monastery. Where is that?

      Thanks so much for your comments and recommendations. There is a lot of things to see and do in Kauai!

  13. I guess getting of the beach really has it’s advantage. ou did some nice exploring. :) And so you got to write this lovely post.

    • I am not a big beach person so exploring is a must for me. Honestly, I am one of two extremes – really lazy where I just want to relax (and I don’t mean lounge on the beach) or go, go, go where I explore like crazy. All these things were done over a week so I did a little of both when I was there. :)

  14. jenjenk says:

    YAY! i’ve done them all. At first I was wondering how you FOUND 8 things to do in Kaui! ;-)

    There are 2 things that I loved doing : 1. Saimin at Hamura Saimin; 2. Taro chips at some hole in the wall factory that my boyfriend’s family took me to!

    • I had never heard of Hamura Saimin. So you definitely have a couple more things that I didn’t. I think there is a LOT more you could do in Kauai than this. The beach is fine (and I know a lot of people love it) but I think that people only go to the beach, they will miss out on a lot the island has to offer.

      I think that’s true of any of the Hawaiian islands.

  15. Sophie says:

    Very pretty photos! I’ve never been to Hawaii, thinking it’s too far to go for just beaches and surfing. But I’ve read quite a few articles lately suggesting there’s much more to the islands. Also, I saw an inflight film from Hawaii a few weeks ago; lots of rain and bright, gorgeous colours. Looked very appealing. Maybe an island-hopping holiday in Hawaii would be fun…

    • There is MUCH more to do than just the beach and surfing. I am not a big fan of the beach and I don’t surf at all. However, I would definitely go back to Hawaii. There is a lot to do there and I think people just need to get out and explore. Kauai has the wettest spot on earth and was the location for some of the filming for Jurassic Park. There is definitely more to it than beaches.

      I like your idea of exploring all the islands. I think most people go to one and make their vacation there. I don’t really know how cheap it is to go between the islands but I know there are local airlines that offer this. So coming from as far away as you would, this might not be a bad idea.

  16. I’m with you — I like a nice beach vacation, but I’ve also got to get out there and do something. Hawaii has so much more to offer.

    • Hawaii is beautiful and those who only go to the beach really miss out on a lot of beautiful places and fun things to do.

      How many of the islands have you visited? Do you have a favorite one?

  17. I love your warning at the beginning! After reading this article, lying on the beach is the last thing on my mind!

    • I thought it was fair to warn people about getting off the beach. I hope people heed the warning and take my suggestions at their own risk! :)

      Have you been to Kauai or any of the other islands in Hawaii?

  18. Christina says:

    Well you certainly convinced me that Hawaii is much more than a beach destination. I gotta say I wouldn’t be able to spend an entire vacation on a beach, no matter how beautiful it is. I’ve never been to Kauai, or Hawaii, but it seems like I’d be able to combine it all – great beaches, surfing, hiking, and very varied landscapes. Thanks for that piece of insight!

    • There is definitely more to Hawaii than just beaches, luaus, sun, and sand. A lot of great culture and activities on this island. I am not a huge fan of the beach but loved Kauai. Actually spent very little time on the beach when I was there.

  19. Danyelle Franciosa says:

    Great photos above. Kauai is one of the best place in Hawaii. I never been there but because of the pictures above you convince me to go, maybe soon. By the way, thanks for sharing such pictures!

  20. I can’t wait to visit Hawaii next month! Not going to Kauai (although it looks heavenly) but I think Maui should do the trick. I’m not a huge beach guy either, but I’m super stoked for kayaking and hiking!

  21. Joe W says:

    Great scenery all around the island it seems. Going there is not on my plans in the near future but I will absolutely keep it in mind. I always thought of the big island first.

  22. This is a great place, i was there with my wife on our honeymoon and we enjoyed a lot our 14 days holiday. I wish to go there again this summer.

  23. Great stuff man…Hawaii has never been on my list because I fear it’s too cheesy-touristy…based on this, it seems I may have misjudged it…

    • Hawaii is definitely touristy. However, take it from me – I avoid tourist traps like the plague. So while I may go to a tourist destination, my goal is to go where they aren’t. I want to explore and find those hidden gems. While it may be hard to call many places on a small island like Kauai gems, I hope people find these areas interesting and worth exploring.

  24. Suzy says:

    I’m not really a beach person (must have something to do with being pale) so I love these suggestions. It sounds like there is a lot to do on such a small island. I have only ever been to the Big Island, but I would love to visit Kauai someday.

    • You and me both! I am a white guy and need lots of sunscreen so the beach is not the ideal place for me. Nor does it really suit my personality. I’ve never been one to lie on the beach and even when I was on the beach, I always took walks, played in the water, or did some other activity.

      Kauai is a small island but there are definitely lots of things to for people who want something more than just a beach.

  25. Charu says:

    It’s so funny–I just attended a Hawaii event for The Big Island in NYC and everyone was raving about Kauai too. I hear it’s the oldest island and the most lush. I would love to hike the Na Pali coast although I may have to train the little one to do it first :) –good points, thanks!

    • I would go back to Kauai in a heartbeat! However, I’ve only been to Maui and Kauai so far. I am hoping to get to Oahu this year but I will have to wait and see how my schedule works out.

      As for Kauai, it is definitely lush. There are still so many things I want to do there. If you hike Na Pali, be prepared. It’s a long and difficult trail. When I was there, I didn’t go far down the trail (as you can see from my photos, it was sunset). If I go back, that’s another thing I want to add to my list. Just be careful if you go! :)

  26. Kauai looks amazing! I’d love to visit– when I do I’ll reread your article for specific tips. Great post :)

    • I love Kauai. I’ve only been to 2 of the islands so far but hope to make it to Kauai this year. Lots of good hiking places in Kauai and you’re all ready for it after your adventure in Utah! :)

  27. Megan Jones says:

    What an extraordinary list! And I bet it isn’t even exhaustive. You make it sound like whatever you want to do on this island there is a perfect place to do it. I went ATV riding on the Big Island and it was one of my favorite memories. The guides were born and raised in the area that we explored so they were extremely knowledgeable. I can’t wait to go to Kauai and try some of these adventures!

    • Kauai was my favorite island because it’s small, there is still plenty of stuff to do, it’s very beautiful with lots of outdoor activities, and it isn’t as crowded as the others. If you ever make it to Kauai, feel free to add to this list! :)

  28. Christy says:

    Cute animals always work for me. :) Although, I didn’t need convincing to visit Kauai. Great ideas here! I personally don’t like just laying on the beach, but I do prefer to be in water for most of my days.

    • I am like you – I don’t really like the beach. Granted you live in San Diego and have the beach right there. I did grow up near Myrtle Beach (maybe that’s why I don’t care for the beach that much – had my fill of it) but I like to explore too much.

      I loved Kauai because it was a quite island. Of course, it can be quite busy so there are lots of things you can do to escape. It’s a beautiful island and I would love to go back!

  29. Jan Ivy says:

    Going back to Kauai next month. Went 5 years ago with family and stayed in a condo at Poipu. Loved it. This time just me & hubby of 52 years. Staying near Hanalei in condo for 2 weeks. Will go on Napali coast tour again! Awesome. Expensive but worth it. Will NOT sit on beach. Too much to see and do. You can always feed the island chickens. LOL.

  30. Alan Harp says:

    We are visiting Kauai for our first time in November of this year. My wife was researching and came across your blog and forwarded it to me. Like you we have visited Maui twice. Most recently in November 13 for our 25th anniversary. We averaged over 5 1/2 miles of hiking each day. A friend told us about Kauai and we cannot wait to experience it. Thanks for the suggestions!
