5 Top Kilauea Attractions

On the northeastern tip of Kauai, you will find the coastal village of Kilauea, an exquisite destination with lots of nature to explore, beautiful beaches, landmarks and outdoor things to do such as hiking, swimming, horseback riding, kayaking, surfing and more.

It’s well worth the adventure to the north end of the island to spend some time in this scenic and charming town, about a 30-minute drive from our resort rentals on Waipouli Beach.

Below are five amazing Kilauea attractions that visitors come far and wide to experience, but there are many more in the area to explore.

Once the landscape project of Joyce and Ed Doty, the Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens has turned into 240 acres of gardens with incredible bronze sculptures, farmland, meadows, and hardwood tree parks.
