Kauai has dramatic mountains, luxuriant valleys, and many breezy beaches that have managed to dodge excessive development – making it the perfect socially distanced Honeymoon & Anniversary Vacation!! If you are ready to travel, we help you prepare so your journey is stress-free!!
Kauai is Hawaii’s fourth-largest island and is sometimes called the “Garden Island,” which is an entirely accurate description. The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires, and jagged cliffs aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers, and cascading waterfalls! Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination. More than just dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. You can kayak the Wailua River, snorkel on Poipu Beach, hike the trails of Kokee State Park, or go ziplining above Kauai’s lush valleys. But it is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns that make it truly timeless. Explore the regions of Kauai and make your escape to discover the undeniable allure of the island.
Poipu Beach Park
This crescent-shaped beach offers crystal-clear waters and occasional Hawaiian monk seal appearances. With lifeguards, picnic facilities, showers, and a natural wading pool for young swimmers, it’s also a great destination for a beach day. There’s a bodyboarding site directly in
front of the park, a surfing site for experienced surfers, and a good reef for snorkeling. From December through April, you can sometimes spot humpback whales in the distance.
Waimea Canyon is described as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Although not as big or as old as its Arizona cousin, you won’t encounter anything like this geological wonder in Hawaii. Stretching 14 miles long, 1 mile wide and more than 3,600 feet deep, the Waimea Canyon
Lookout provides panoramic views of crested buttes, rugged crags and deep valley gorges. The grand inland vistas go on for miles. The main road, Waimea Canyon Drive, leads you to a lower lookout point and the main Waimea Canyon Overlook, offering views of Kauai’s dramatic interior. The road continues into the mountains and ends at Kokee State Park. There are numerous trails to traverse for beginners and seasoned hikers alike.
Spanning 17 miles along Kauai’s North Shore, the Napali Coast is a sacred place defined by extraordinary natural beauty. These emerald-hued cliffs with razor-sharp ridges tower above the Pacific Ocean, revealing beautiful beaches and waterfalls that plummet to the lush valley floor. There are many ways to explore the Napali Coast, but the safest access and best views are found by sea or by air. Boat tours depart from Port Allen on the West Side, and during the summer months, guided kayaking trips bring you up-close to soaring cathedral cliffs. When conditions are right, raft tours are available to guide you to hidden sea caves and remote beaches. Aerial tours, most lifting off from Lihue Airport, are perhaps the best way to grasp the magnitude of the Napali Coast. You’ll also get a front-row seat to scenic areas that are largely inaccessible by land or water, like majestic Manawaiopuna Falls, a backdrop in the film “Jurassic Park.” Whichever tour you choose, the natural splendor of the Napali Coast will leave a deep impression on your soul..
Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge
The Refuge is home to some of the largest populations of nesting seabirds in in the main Hawaiian Islands. Visitors might also spot spinner dolphins, Hawaiian monk seals, native Hawaiian coastal plants and Hawai‘i’s state bird – the nene or endangered Hawaiian goose. It is also the site of Kilauea Point Lighthouse.
Queen’s Bath – A natural tide pool surrounded by igneous rock, Queen’s Bath is accessible via a short but steep hike down the Princeville coast. It’s a great spot to catch a glimpse of sea life and take in views of the ocean and shoreline.
