Things to do in kauai

Explore the island’s natural beauty, breathtaking sights and annual events

Few places on earth are blessed with as much unspoiled natural beauty as Kauai – home to stunning beaches, majestic mountains, and cascading waterfalls. Tucked along the island’s gorgeous western shore, Waimea Plantation Cottages offers a peaceful home base from which to explore all that the Garden Isle has to offer.

Check out Waimea Canyon, one of Kauai’s most iconic natural landmarks, or tour the Kauai Coffee Estate.

Cruise along the water or take a helicopter trip to see the Na Pali cliffs. Interested in a little retail therapy? The Shops at Kukui'ula are just a short drive away. A full calendar of events, including farmers markets, athletic competitions, festivals and cultural celebrations, ensures you’ll never be bored.
