Best Family Activities on Kauai
To make the most of your Kauai vacation, be sure to add some of the best family activities on Kauai to your itinerary. Kauai has its share of stunning white sand beaches, many of which are right near our Kappa vacation homes, and the swimming conditions vary at each. Families with small children will want to explore Baby Beach, also known as Fuji Beach, located in the east coast town of Kapa’a. Baby Beach is perfect for toddlers or small children who are just gaining their confidence in the ocean, as an outer breakwall keeps the waves at bay. For family-friendly vacation rentals situated right on a swimmable sandy beach, browse our properties at the desirable Kaha Lani! The south shore’s Poipu Beach Park is also great for families, offering protected swimming waters, a beachfront playground, and a nearshore reef great for snorkeling. Those with older children or teens will enjoy swimming and boogie boarding at Kealia Beach, located on the east coast.
Both Baby Beach and Kealia Beach are located along Ke Ala Hele Makalae, the paved path that runs along Kauai’s east coast. This path is the perfect spot for walking, jogging, and biking, all the while soaking in stunning coastal views. Bike shops located on the path make securing rentals easy, and you’ll find bikes that range from children’s sizes to adult bikes with trailers, making it accessible for the whole family. Get in a morning of exercise by challenging yourself along the route, or plan for plenty of stops at the beaches and restaurants you’ll pass along the way!
To take a break from the beach scene, consider adding a special excursion to the itinerary that the whole family will revel in. Ziplining, horseback riding, dolphin and whale watching boat excursions, ATV tours, and helicopter rides are just a few of the ways you can further enjoy your time as a family while on Kauai! Have you ever been on a river adventure? Click here to see our Wailua Bay View condos that are situated close to the mouth of the spectacular Wailua River! Possible tours upriver include an open-air motorized boat excursion with Smith’s Kauai as well as kayaking and paddle boarding options that are great for families with older kids. If you opt for the scenic boat trip with Smith’s, consider pairing it with their famed luau afterward. Smith’s is known for their excellent garden luau, complete with a traditional Hawaiian feast with Kalua pork roasted in the earthen imu oven. Aside from the delicious food, the entire family will be enthralled with the entertainment that includes the traditional hula of Hawaii, Tahitian drum dances, and Samoan fire knife dances.
The adults in the family will appreciate a stop at the Koloa Rum Company, a craft distiller that uses local ingredients, including Hawaiian cane sugar and pure mountain rainwater. The tasting room is open from Monday through Saturday and includes taste tests of favorites such as Mai Tai rum, coffee rum, and pineapple passion cocktail. It is situated on a 105-acre plantation that also offers something for the kids, making this a family friendly outing. The Kauai Plantation Railway is a celebration of Kauai’s plantation days and is a working train that passes through a variety of crops and beautiful scenery. This 2.5-mile train ride also offers a fun-filled stop where you disembark the train to feed animals such as pigs, goats, sheep, and donkeys. The whole family will enjoy an outing to the Kilohana Plantation, which offers a glimpse of the past as well as present-day fun!
