How to enjoy Kauai

Fern Grotto, Nounou Mountain, Wailua Falls, Waimea Canyon – take your pick from a stunning range of awe inspiring local sights

  • See the blue waters of Alekoko Fishpond, legend says it was built overnight by Kauai’s mythical little people, the Menehune
  • Catch shots of the Spouting Horn, the spectacular blow hole that spouts a huge jet of water during large swells on the Poipu coastline
  • Take a trip to the Kilauea Lighthouse on the island’s northernmost tip. In addition to great views, it’s a wildlife refuge and great for bird spotting

You’ll probably want to bring your camera when you visit Kauai. Although saying that, the island’s spectacular scenery is so amazing, it’ll probably stay imprinted in your mind’s eye long after the end of your visit. Fern Grotto is a natural lava-rock cave festooned with lush hanging ferns. Accessible only by boat and with hauntingly beautiful acoustics, it is a popular location for weddings.

Dubbed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, the breathtaking Waimea Canyon stretches for 13 miles with steep red rock walls adorned with vibrant greens. Wailea Falls is a dramatic cascade, often graced with a rainbow. Nounou Mountain (the Sleeping Giant) provides plenty of photo opportunities along the two mile hiking trail to its peak.
