How to Get Off the Beaten Path on Kauai

How to Get Off the Beaten Path on Kauai

While famous attractions such as the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon are must-see sights, there are still plenty of hidden gems in Kauai. Here’s how to get off-the-beaten-path on Hawaii’s Island of Discovery.

 

Makauwahi Cave Reserve

Not far from Poipu’s Shipwrecks Beach on the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail, Makauwahi Cave Reserve is a 17-acre (6.9-hectare) archaeological site that boasts the largest limestone cave in Hawaii. Free tours take place daily and there’s a tortoise sanctuary next to the reserve.

 

Kekaha Beach

Located on the far west side of Kauai, Kekaha Beach is part of the longest stretch of white sand in Hawaii. Most visitors don’t venture this far west, so it’s usually much less crowded than other Kauai beaches; it also offers stunning sunset views, and is ideal for surfing, fishing, and beachcombing.

 

Allerton Garden

Spanning 186 acres (75 hectares) on the south shore of Kauai, Allerton Garden is a masterpiece of landscape and garden design. Admire Moreton Bay fig trees, bamboo groves, tropical fruit trees, and flower gardens alongside statues, water features, and priceless artwork.

 

Ho’opulapua Haraguchi Rice Mill and Taro Farm

Located within a wildlife refuge that’s not usually open to the public, the Haraguchi Rice Mill is Hawaii’s only remaining rice mil, as well as a working taro farm. Learn about the island’s agricultural history; see old rice milling equipment; explore the cultivation and uses of taro; and observe native water birds on a tour.

star-5
22
[FOR UP TO 6 PASSENGERS, private tour] *For more reviews, check us on TripAdvisor, "Noah's Ark Kauai"* This tour starts by heading directly to the Waimea Canyon on the west side. On the way there, we will stop to stretch our legs and take a look at the Hanapepe Valley overlook. At Waimea town, we will begin our ascent into the canyon. We will stop at about 1800 feet for our first view, stop at a miniature waterfall for pictures, take a short walk on a nature trail with native Hawaiian plants where you can stand at the very edge of the canyon, and then on to the main canyon viewing area. From there we will head to the top stopping to see the Waipo'o Falls on the way. At the very top we will view two different vantage points of the Kalalau Valley from 4700 feet down to the ocean. On the way back down I will tell a historical tale about Kalalau. Lunch. Then to the south side for Spouting Horn, Poipu Beach (monk seals) and a walk to see the Makauwahi Sinkhole cave in Mahaulepu State Park.
