Amazing Activities in Kauai
Savoring every moment in your beachfront rental promises to be a wonderful way to spend your Kauai vacation. However, booking a trip this direction just isn’t complete without ample time set aside for discovery and exploration. Whether you’re one for the beach, the hiking trails, natural landmarks or making your way across the island by flavorful stops, Kauai promises to have something incredible waiting for you. Here are a few stops to be sure to add to the top of the list while you’re here!
Visit Hanalei Bay
When it comes to scenic stops in Kauai, Hanalei Bay is always a highlight. This stunning stretch of shoreline is easy to identify by its crescent figure and is found along the north shore of the island. Snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking are all popular activities at Hanalei Bay and just as fun, particularly when you’re visiting with the family, is to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy time watching the waves and sailboats drift by. Black Pot Beach is integrated into the bay and hosts a 100-meter dock that is often open for enjoying as well. Hanalei Bay is a great daytime stop but when you’re looking for a destination where you can take in the sunset in style, this is the spot to do that as well.
Enjoy the Kilauea Lighthouse
For all of the time spent on the sand and under the sun in Kauai, visiting a lighthouse is always a good reminder of just how much these islands depend on what is brought in from the waterways. Those who are interested in a visit will find a stop at the Kilauea Lighthouse to be endlessly fascinating. This lighthouse can be found on the north shore of the island and is an integral part of the greater Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. Expect to pay $10 per person to get into the refuge, but for those who love spotting birds, this is an oasis of fun. Visitors can see everything from Laysan albatross to red-footed booby while their here, not to mention an up-close encounter with this amazing lighthouse!
Dine at Keoki’s Paradise
Savor all the flavors of the Garden Isle by making your way to Keoki’s Paradise at least once while you’re here. Using local ingredients and combining them in style, this family-friendly restaurant is a Kauai favorite for locals and visitors alike. From seafood and salads to steak and a side of hula pie, a trip to Keoki’s Paradise is bound to please the palate. Live entertainment is regularly scheduled at this restaurant which is situated on Poipu Beach and is open for dinner between 4:45 pm and close
Fun in the Sun
During your stay in one of our Kauai beachfront condos, you have to take advantage of the plethora of activities you can do just outside your door. There’s snorkeling, surfing, body boarding, stand-up paddleboarding and good ole sunbathing.
We have a few favorite shops for renting or buying everything you might need to have a great time at the beachfront in Kauai. We love Poipu Surf, Nukumoi Surf Shop in Koloa and Tamba Surf Company.
If you’re a GoPro user – Hawaii is a great place to have a GoPro – we recommend Poipu Surf. In addition to equipment rentals and clothing, they have a great selection of GoPro accessories. Tamba Surf Company was named “Best Surf Shop in Kaua’i” by Hawaii Magazine in 2018. They also make custom surfboards and rent surfboard, SUPboard, bodyboard and snorkel accessories, and offer surfing lessons, and they’re open seven days a week in Kapa’a. If you’re looking for some serious surf lessons, try a seven-day clinic at Nukumoi Surf Shop. They also rent any equipment you might need for your beach day.
