There’s nothing that says romantic getaway more than a Hawaiian vacation. With its beautiful scenery, tropical breezes, sunny atmosphere, and exotic locales to explore, Kaua’i has everything you could want from a vacation locale. The island is home to thousands of wild chickens, gorgeous beaches, and the Holo Holo Koloa Scenic Byway, the 19-mile state-designated scenic byway. We’ve compiled a list of destinations and adventures below that will help make your trip to Kaua’i even more memorable.

Resort and Hotel Packages: You can visit Koloa Landing Resort for vacation deals, or find other great packages and options at resorts and hotels around the island. It’s important to choose the right place to stay because a good night’s sleep and some pampering are important to make sure you feel rested, relaxed, and ready to go on whatever Hawaiian adventures await you during the day.

Transportation: Kaua’i has a bus service for public transportation, and you can also rent a car to drive the scenic byway and highways.

Waimea Canyon: This large canyon, referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, is located on the west side of Kaua’i. It has many hiking trails and it’s a popular tourist destination.

Dining: For a romantic, upscale dining experience, check out Red Salt in Koloa. The chef uses fresh seafood and features a sushi bar on certain nights. Kilauea Fish Market also serves up fresh seafood in a more relaxed atmosphere. If you’re looking to do some cooking, visit the Hanalei Farmer’s Market for fresh produce and other goods.

Hawaiian Shave Ice: Not to be confused with shaved ice, this dessert is made by shaving a block of ice rather than with crushed ice. It resembles a snow cone, and Kaua’i has many shave ice shops where you can try local flavors such as guava, coconut cream, and lychee.

Tree Tunnel: The tree tunnel is located on Maluhia Road, and it’s a mile-long stretch of eucalyptus trees that form a beautiful canopy over the road. This is a sight that can’t be missed, and also a compelling argument for renting a car while in Kaua’i.

Fern Grotto: This magical natural amphitheater made of lava rock is completely covered in ferns. Bands often play live music here because of the great acoustics and general atmosphere. You can visit on your own, or easily find a river tour that will bring you right to the grotto. The romantic area can even be rented out for a wedding!

Sleeping Giant: Also known as Nounou Mountain, it’s got plenty of hiking trails and natural beauty to experience. It’s named both for its reclining shape and after a Native Hawaiian legend.

Hanalei Bay: This is the largest bay on the north shore of Kaua’i. Both South Pacific and The Descendants had scenes that were filmed here, which is why you may recognize the name. It features almost 2 miles of beach and serves as a great location for picnics, swimming, fishing, surfing, and paddle boarding.

Wailua Falls: This double-tiered waterfall is a sight to behold. It’s north of Lihue and can even be seen from the side of the road.

Helicopter Tour: To experience the natural beauty of Kaua’i from above, consider taking a helicopter tour. There’s a variety of offerings on the island, including Sunshine Helicopters. They’ll fly you over Waimea Canyon and a waterfall or two.

Surfing Lessons: If you want to learn something new while on vacation, get yourself some surfing lessons. Obviously, Hawaii, in general, is a great place for surfing, and Kaua’i is no exception. You can find both surfing classes and one-on-one instruction at many locations.

With all these amazing activities and places to see, you’ll surely never be bored. Of course, make sure to give yourself some time just to walk around and explore the island without a set plan. You never know what you’ll end up finding if you go off the beaten path. Enjoy your relaxing getaway in Kaua’i!
