As Travel To Go continues its review of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands, it now turns to the island of Kauai. Kauai is one of Hawaii’s most adventurous islands and the perfect choice for learning about the history of the people of Hawaii. Those who want to get wonderfully lost on a vacation getaway can do just that in Kauai. As they wander through its beautiful landscapes, ride down its rivers and see its cultural history, they will discover just how rich this island is and why it is an ideal spot for the curious traveler.
Those who want to start their adventure on the water will not be disappointed in what Kauai has to offer them. The Wailua River is the perfect venue for kayaking and appreciating the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Taking a boat along the coast is also a wonderful way to see the island from a unique view. Visitors can even participate in water tubing excursions which will take them along the historic waterways of Kauai, offering a chance to not only enjoy the unique exploration of the tropical paradise, but also a chance to learn about how and why these canals were constructed.
While there are certainly one of a kind water adventures to be found in Kauai, there are just as many chances for exploration on land as there are off of it. Hiking in the rainforest terrain is always a popular choice on any of the Hawaiian Islands, but there are a number of other adventures awaiting in Kauai. Horseback riding and off-roading are popular in this adventurer’s paradise, and zip lining excursions are also a popular choice. One of the most extraordinary ventures on Kauai is a hike into Waimea Canyon. The canyon is stunning from above and from the trails into its heart, and those who visit it should be sure to bring along a camera for the plethora of great photo opportunities.
Clearly a perfect spot for thrill seekers, Kauai also has its softer side. Those who want to learn about Hawaiian history can do so by visiting popular attractions like the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse, Waimea Canyon State Park, Old Koloa Town, Ka Ulu o Laka temple, or any of the other astounding historical sites on the island. There are also a number of festivals and celebrations that happen throughout the year in Kauai, which will allow guests on the island to get in touch with the locals and learn more about the beautiful culture.
Another astounding choice for a Hawaiian vacation getaway, Kauai certainly speaks to adventurous and curious travelers who are sure to take advantage of the many opportunities that this island offers for learning and discovering.
