Attractions on Kauaʻi

Kauaʻi is a rich island in many ways: beautiful scenery, lush rainforests, luxury amenities. To get the most out of your vacation, you’ll need to get out of the resorts and go exploring to find some of these memorable treasures. Whether you’re an avid hiker or more of a road-trip enthusiast, our island has some great spots to visit, check out some of the top attractions in Kaua’i here.

  • MUSEUMS: Explore Kauaʻi’s history at one of several museums scattered around the island. Museums here are one of Kauai’s greatest attractions (man-made of course), whether your interest is ancient traditional culture, missionary life, or the sugar plantation era, there is a museum for you!
  • HISTORIC SITES: Much of Kauaʻi’s history is found outdoors, rather than within the walls of a museum. Spend a day marveling at the vast temple complex along the Wailua River, or visit the site of Captain Cook’s first landing in the islands.
  • STATE PARKS: From the mountains to the sea, Kauaʻi’s state parks are truly diverse. Hike in cool forests, relax on beautiful beaches, and view the island of Niʻihau in the distance. Even visit a Russian fort!
  • WATERFALLS: And finally, waterfalls. You know you want them. They are an indispensable part of your Kauaʻi vacation. From easily accessible to helicopter-only, we have a great variety to choose from.

Well, get busy! Start planning your trip today!
