Aloha and happy new year! As we kick off 2024, it's the perfect time to start thinking about that trip to the gorgeous Hawaiian island of Kaua'i you've been dreaming about. Known as the "Garden Island" for its lush green landscapes, Kaua'i is truly a slice of paradise with so much natural beauty to explore.
If visiting Kaua'i is on your 2024 travel bucket list, here are some top things you won't want to miss out on while you're there:
Take in Dramatic Scenery on the Napali Coast
One of Kaua'i's most jaw-droppingly beautiful spots is the Napali Coast on the North Shore. Take a boat tour, kayak, or even hike the famous Kalalau Trail to see breathtaking sea cliffs, hidden beaches, waterfalls, and more. There are plenty of ways to experience Napali, but you won't fully appreciate its dramatic beauty without seeing it up close.
Chase Waterfalls in Waimea Canyon
Known aptly as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," Waimea Canyon is a spectacular natural wonder not to be missed. Spend a day checking out the lookout points and hiking trails to see Waimea's red rock cliffs and several picturesque waterfalls including the 800-foot Wai'ale'ale Falls.
Relax on Poipu's Golden Sand Beaches
If you're looking for world-class beaches, head to Poipu on Kaua'i's sunny South Shore. Top beaches to check out include Shipwreck Beach, Maha'ulepu Beach, and the crystal clear waters of Baby Beach. Stroll the coastline, swim, snorkel or just soak up the sunshine on the golden sand. A perfect way to relax on your trip!
Get a Taste of Hawaii's Coconut Coast
Kaua'i's East Side is known as the "Coconut Coast" for its abundant coconut groves. Stop by historic sites like Kilohana Plantation, or browse art galleries, fruit stands and tasty food trucks all along the drive. Be sure to try delicious tropical fruits, fresh coconut and authentic Hawaiian shave ice!
