The beaches on the south shore of Kaua’i are sun drenched and breezy in summer. Mahaulepu Beach is isolated and charming, near the end of the Mahaulepu Beach Heritage Trail. Poipu Beach is perfect for families and has been rated as the best beach in America. Hanalei Bay Pavilion, on the island’s north shore, is in the center of a two-mile crescent bay with facilities perfect for a day trip in winter. Fuji Beach, on the east side, is popular for exploring tide pools, while Polihale Beach on the west side is great for enjoying Kauai’s spectacular sunsets.

For hikers, there are two of the world’s most incredible trails to explore on foot on Kaua'i. The Na Pali coast on the north shore offers a multi-day backpacking route, or a day hike on the Hanakapi’ai Trail to a breathtaking waterfall with a rewarding swimming hole. On the island’s south shore is Waimea Canyon, “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific” with views deep into the earth, waterfalls, and rainbows. For paddlers, the Wailua River is a lush boulevard into the island’s interior. And on the south shore, adventure seekers can choose zip lines, horseback, or 4x4 excursions to get intimate with the open landscape.
The Club at Kukui'ula has designed a comprehensive keiki program, Keala Pueo, to help kids understand and enjoy Kaua'i. From island excursions like ATV trekking through Kipu Ranch to surfing lessons, kids are sure to beg to return day after day.
