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.
