1. Na Pali Coast
One of the world’s most pristine shorelines, the Na Pali Coast stretches 17 dramatic miles along the Garden Island’s North Shore. Comprised of a series of magnificent sea cliffs that drop straight into the crystal blue ocean, this natural wonder is the perfect spot for nature lovers and adventurers. Get your hearts beating a little faster with a challenging hike leading to a lush river valley and cascading waterfalls, enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the rugged beauty from an aerial tour, or get up close and personal with a catamaran tour.
2. Po’ipu Beach
Po’ipu Beach beckons with its soft golden sand, legendary snorkeling, perfect surf breaks, and fascinating wildlife, such as Hawaiian Monk Seals, reef fish, and Kauai’s famously endearing feral chickens. As the island’s closest resort to Po’ipu Beach, Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort is just steps from all it has to offer. Whether going for a romantic stroll or watching a breathtaking sunset, there are so many ways to make memories with the one you love.
3. Tunnels Beach
Share a passion for snorkeling or scuba diving? Tunnels Beach, on the North Shore, is for you. The massive coral reef’s inner reef is ideal for novice snorkelers, while the outer reef is more suited to advanced snorkelers and divers. Underwater caverns, formed by lava tubes, provide an otherworldly underwater experience. Generally calm in the summer months, the water is more volatile in the winter so be sure to check the conditions before heading out.
