Kauai is Hawaii’s fourth largest island, and is a top adventure destination with small town charm and secluded adventure spots. It is the oldest of the Hawaiian islands, and is known for its lush green mountains and rainforests, roaring waterfalls, idyllic beaches, dramatic sea cliffs, and big waves. Kauai has an endless list of things to do. Snorkel, swim and sunbathe at Kauai’s blissful beaches, surf the magical Hanalei Bay, kayak the dramatic Na Pali coast, explore the stunning Waimea Canyon – “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, or hike to it’s many famous waterfalls.

Kauai is world famous for surfing, and caters to all levels, from beginner to expert. The north shore’s enormous, challenging waves continuously attract champion surfers from all over the world in the winter months. For those just starting out, there are plenty of surf spots with gentle waves perfect for learning. Hawaii Magazine ranked some of Kauai’s top beaches for learning to surf including Anahola Bay, Hanalei Bay (summer months), Kalapaki Beach and Kiahuna Beach. Anahola Bay is a safe bet – it has a large outer reef that weakens strong waves into mellow, gentle flows. For beginner surfing during the summer months, check out Hanalei Bay.

Water activities in Kauai don’t stop at surfing. Kauai excursions and adventures include snorkeling, cave tours, diving, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. The summer months bring calmer waters better suited for beginners, so take caution when enjoying the surf during the winter months.

The best months to visit Kauai are April to June and September to November to avoid the summer vacation crowds, but Kauai is an ideal vacation spot any time of the year.
