Best Luxury Kauai Activities

To experience the true majesty of the Garden Island, venturing off the beaten path is rich in rewards. About 97% of the island consists of undeveloped land, and because of its rugged terrain, is unreachable by land vehicle. To experience the island’s isolated places of pristine beauty, consider booking a boat or helicopter tour. A wide variety of helicopter tours leave from the east coast town of Lihue and include sights such as Waimea Canyon, Jurassic Falls, and the Na Pali Coast on the itinerary. With Kauai’s sheer emerald cliffs and deeply carved valleys, flying among these landforms aboard a helicopter is a surreal experience. Try the doors-off tour to capture amazing photos of the journey! Exploring the island by boat is another option that is one of the most popular Kauai tours. From a fast and thrilling Zodiac ride to a leisurely sunset sail aboard a luxury catamaran, your boating experience can be as adrenaline-inducing or as romantic as you’d prefer. Boat excursions provide the opportunity to admire the island’s coastal views, especially those of the formidable Na Pali Coast, where sheer emerald cliffs drop directly into the ocean. Along with providing sightseeing opportunities, many boat excursions also include activities such as snorkeling at offshore locations. Keep an eye out for spinner dolphins, giant sea turtles, and whales (in season) along the way!
Kauai is a destination that encourages you to slow down and appreciate the natural beauty all around. And while offering the chance to find pleasure in the simpler things in life, you will also find there is no shortage of luxuries and ways to indulge. Consider booking a table at one of the best Kauai restaurants for a special evening out. Hukilau Lanai is known for their ocean fresh seafood and dishes crafted with ingredients from local farmers. JO2 Natural Cuisine is another favorite for their beautifully plated dishes crafted with fresh local ingredients. And with a menu that varies by what is seasonally fresh, there is always something new to try!
Catching a sunrise and sunset while on Kauai are must-do activities. Staying on the east coast means you won’t have an early morning drive in order to watch the sun make its way above the horizon, signaling the start of another day in paradise.
