Kaua'i is known as the Garden Isle of Hawaii, and with good reason. This island is lush, green, and full of natural beauty perfect for exploring over a long weekend. If you have a few days to spend on Kaua'i, here's how to see the best it has to offer:

Day 1: Arrive & Explore the North Shore After arriving, head straight up to the North Shore which is home to the famous Na Pali Coast and some of Kaua'i's most breathtaking beaches. Spend your first day beach-hopping from Ke'e Beach to Hanalei Bay, taking scenic walks on the wild Napali Coast, and enjoying a casual lunch in Hanalei town. Don't miss the Kilauea Lighthouse and try to catch an incredible sunset overlooking the ocean.

Day 2: Waimea Canyon & Wailua Falls Devoting your second day to seeing Waimea Canyon is a must. Considered the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, this massive gorge displays colorful rock formations and the most dramatic views on the island. Stop at Waipo'o Falls Lookout, hike a few miles into the canyon, and drive up to Kōke’e State Park. On your way back, make time for Wailua Falls and explore the quaint towns of Hanapepe and Kapa'a.

Day 3: Po'ipū Beaches & South Shore Head to Po'ipū on the sunny southern coast filled with world-famous beaches like Shipwreck Beach, Maha'ulepu Beach, and Brennecke's Beach. Enjoy relaxing on the sand, snorkeling at Po'ipū Beach Park, and finding secret spots like Palaha Beach. Wander through the luxury resorts and stop in the surf town of Koloa for shave ice.

BOTTOM LINE: With plenty of hiking trails, incredible beaches, scenic drives, and adventures, Kaua'i truly offers nonstop fun and relaxation over a long holiday weekend!
