Best of Kauai
Kauai HistoryHawaii and Luau are synonymous so it’s a must to check out Kauai’s most iconic Luau – Luau Kalamaku. This traditional Hawaiian event is held at the Kilohana Estate, a historic plantation in Lihue. For more historic sights, visit the Waioli Huuia Church and Mission House on the North Shore and keep time with the wall clock, installed in 1866, which still keeps perfect time!
Natural SceneryExperience the breathtaking scenery of the picturesque Kauai. The Napali Coast on the North Shore hosts 17 miles of beautiful cliffs, waterfalls and sea caves, while the Wailua River on the East Side offers guests a gorgeous kayak ride. While on the East Side of the island, try to find the “Sleeping Giant” in the Nounou Mountain and snorkel in the lava rock-enclosed pools at Lydgate Beach Park.
Natural PhenomenaThe “Garden Island” is home to, not only a lovely landscape, but natural phenomena, as well. The Spouting Horn on the South Shore is a blowhole, shooting 20+ feet in the air and is a picture-perfect piece of nature. On the East Side, the beautiful Fern Grotto sits, an unusual cave filled with ferns.
