Life Is Better on an Island
Island life brings with it a slow pace of life and a casual culture. The isolation of the Hawaiian Islands makes them truly a secluded treasure. Especially on Kauai where no other public island is in sight, the feeling of a tropical paradise permeates. Kauai is beautifully rugged, and its untouched land is a large part of its charm. Instead of high-rise buildings and billboards, you will find two lane roads and towering palms. Life is better on an island, where you can wake to the sounds of singing birds, keep time by high how the sun is in the sky, and round out the day with a spectacular sunset.
Kauai in particular still retains much of its old-world charm from the plantation days. Appealing towns with local shops and eateries are mixed in among world class white sand beaches. Inland, you will find sheer emerald green mountains, rushing waterfalls, and lush rainforests. From lounging along a postcard perfect beach to adventuring in the mountains, island life on Kauai will not disappoint!
Top Things to Do on Kauai
Beyond the grounds of your Kauai FlipKey rental, activity options abound. These vacation rentals are ideally situated among Kauai’s top activities. With many positioned along the island’s east coast, it is easy to enjoy all this area has to offer as well as to easily access the popular north and south shores on day trips. Add even more interest to your island vacation by saving some room in your itinerary for these top Kauai activities!
Hit the Beach
The island is home to so many amazing beaches that offer everything from lounging along the shore without another soul in sight to participating in a variety of water activities. Swimming, snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding, and stand up paddle boarding are just a few of the popular water activities you’ll find both residents and visitors participating in. The east coast’s Kalapaki Bay and Kealia Beach are both favorites for water activities! Kalapaki Bay conveniently offers a beach rental gear shop onsite, making it easy to book a lesson or rent a surfboard without having to transport it on your rental car.
Book an Adventure
Add an adventure activity to the itinerary for more options to stay entertained. Options such as ATV tours, horseback riding, ziplining, tubing, helicopter tours, and boat tours are all ways to add a thrill to your vacation while at the same time taking in more of the island’s stunning terrain. Kauai’s terrain truly is diverse, and you’ll find everything from trails that meander through lush tropical rainforests to gushing waterfalls to dry landscapes and red dirt cliffs that characterize the island’s west side.
Explore Charming Towns
Kauai’s east coast town of Kapa’a is where you’ll find the island’s best shopping and dining options. The quaint downtown is perfect for walking and browsing the unique shops and cafes. A scenic bike path also passes through the area, following the contour of the coastline past windswept beaches and scenic water views. Bike rental shops located convenient to the path make it easy to select your beach cruiser of choice and spend the day exploring the charming downtown and scenic coastline on two wheels.
Visit Koke’e State Park
Accessed from Kauai’s west side, Koke’e State Park offers a different Kauai experience than what you will find along the shoreline. Tucked away in the mountains, this park offers trails and lookouts that boast views of the famed Na Pali coast along one side of the park, and the dramatic Waimea Canyon on the other side. Miles of trails make their way into secluded terrain, making this a hiker’s paradise. And even for those who don’t want to pack their hiking boots, the lookouts alone are well worth the day trip! Everywhere you look, there’s something to be enjoyed on scenic Kauai!
