5 Affordable Family Activities in Kauai

5 Affordable Family Activities in Kauai

Planning a family trip to Hawaii? Don’t forget about Kauai! The island sees less tourists than other spots in the island chain, but still has all the appeal. Known as the Garden Isle for it’s lush rainforests and mountain ranges, Kauai has dozens of hikes to choose from. If you’re not interested in hiking, the island is home to 43 miles of beaches. You and you’re kids will love the waterfalls, snorkeling, and cultural spots. Here are some of our top picks for affordable family activities in Kauai, because a fun family vacation shouldn’t have to break the bank!  

1. Snorkel Along the Na Pali Coast

Snorkeling along the Na Pali Coast.

Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park is a wonder to behold. Rugged coastal cliffs make this famous stretch of shore inaccessible by car, but it’s well worth the trek to get out there. You’ll either have to take a two-mile hike to Hanakapi’ai Beach, do part of the 11-mile hike on the Kalalau Trail, or go with a boat tour. The waters off the Na Pali Coast have an abundance of sea life. In addition to schools of fish, you might see dolphins and sea turtles — known in Hawaiian as honu. 

2. Discover Kauai’s Beaches

Hawaii’s beaches are popular for many things — snorkeling, surfing, and of course swimming. If you’re looking to enjoy a beach day with the kiddos, Poipu Beach in the South and Lydgate Beach on the East Shore have calm water that’s ideal for swimming. Both beaches have a play area for kids and at Poipu, there is a lifeguard on duty every day. Lydgate Beach has two enclosed ponds that create a barrier from waves, but still allow fish to come in making it a great spot for snorkeling too. 

3. Take a Shaka Guide Tour
