Fun Things to Do in Kauai
Located at 22°05′N 159°30′W, Kauai has a total land area of 562.3 square miles and a population of over 67,000 people.
Kauai is a place that sets the imagination soaring. Her extraordinary beauty and charm have been immortalized in dozens of Hollywood films and television shows, yet there’s nothing like meeting the real thing. View Kauai through the lens of Hollywood on our Hawaii Movie Tour.
Perhaps the most striking quality of Kauai is her Eden-like loveliness. The chiseled ridges and valleys of Kauai’s Mt. Waialeale are cloaked, velvet-like, by emerald rainforests. Dramatic cliffs tower thousands of feet above the vast Pacific Ocean. The island’s edges are scalloped with sandy beaches and snorkeling spots frequented by Hawaiian monk seals and sea turtles. Lying hidden from sight are remote valleys, waterfalls, and sea caves, accessible only via air or sea.
There are many ways to feel Kauai’s charm: visit beautiful waterfalls, take a leisurely cruise along Wailua River to the famed Fern Grotto on our Waimea Canyon and Fern Grotto Tour, and find inspiration at Waimea Canyon – a geological wonder measuring 14 miles long and more than 3,600 feet deep. Cinema fans can follow their favorite actors and see, first-hand, some of Kauai’s iconic sites captured in blockbuster films.
There are small towns to visit, local foods to sample, historic points of interest, and much more worth finding – on Kauai, Hawaii’s Island of Discovery.
