Things to do in Kauai
- Na Pali coast
Book a boat tour through one of the local island companies and bring some snacks because there’s no better way to see this coast than by boat! The views are picturesque and you will see sites where numerous movies have been filmed, such as Jurassic Park. You can get all of the local tour information from your hotels concierge.
- Air tours
Kauai is known as the “garden isle” because of its luscious greenery. There are helicopter tours, run by a few different companies, that can fly you above the island for some of the most breathtaking views.
- Waimea Canyon
If you have rented a car during your stay, we recommend driving the canyon and downloading the Kauai GPS Tour Guide from iTunes. Drive all the way up to Kalualu Lookout for amazing views of the Na Pali coastline.
- Kalalau Trail
The hike of all hikes! There are many different distance options for this hiking trail, which takes you along the Na Pali coastline. There are waterfalls along the way for you to stop and cool off. Make sure to check the weather before getting started.
- Dine at Dukes
Dukes is a Hawaiian must-do! For those who stay at Marriott’s Kauai Beach Club, Dukes is simply steps away. Named after Duke Paoa Kahanamoku, the father of international surfing, the restaurant is located directly on the beach and boasts a beachy menu at the barefoot bar, and more upscale seafood menu in the dining room. This is a perfect spot to bring the whole family!
