Day 1
Explore the Island! On your way to the West side, we recommend driving up to see the Waimea Canyon. It’s often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”. The views of the canyon are absolutely breathtaking. And while you’re there, keep driving to the end of the road to Koke’e State Park. You’ll be able to see an incredible view of the Kalalau Valley. This is definitely a great day trip and on your way out you can stop in Waimea town for some delicious Jo Jo’s Shave Ice while you make your way back to the other sides of the island.

Day 2
Feeling like a hike? One of the world’s best hikes is on Kauai! Hiking the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali coast is definitely a must. If you’re a seasoned hiker and don’t have small children, this hike is great day hike if you just hike in a few miles to enjoy the gorgeous waterfalls and sites. Not feeling like a hike but want to experience the Na Pali coast, take a boat tour! There are some really incredible tours in the area and you’re able to view the majestic Na Pali cliffs from the sea.

Experience Hanalei Town! On the North Shore of Kauai is the quaint Hanalei town. It’s a great town to walk around for shopping and eating delicious food. And of course, there’s the Hanalei Pier nearby boasting gorgeous views of the Hanalei Bay. Definitely a great place to stop if you’re heading to the end of the road, Ke’e Beach Park for a gorgeous Sunset view!

Poipu Beach Park is another great place to spend the day on Kauai. The sunny South Shore offers this great beach for the whole family. There’s swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and is lifeguard protected. There are also some really delicious places to eat in Poipu, like Brennecke’s and Roy’s.

Day 6
Exploring the beaches on Kauai is definitely a fun activity. One of our favorite beaches is Anini Beach Park. This is a great beach for all ages and especially for snorkeling. And while you’re up on the North Shore you can head to the Kilauea Lighthouse for a quick tour! There are some amazing views off the north shore cliffs.

Day 7
Relaxing at Kalapaki Beach may be the best to save for last. Kalapaki is near the Lihue Airport, so it’s a great place to hang before catching your flight home. The easy access at this beach and it being right across from the yummy Duke’s restaurant definitely makes Kalapaki a great place to soak up that Kauai sun before heading back to the mainland.
