Nā Pali Coast State Park and Coastline

The Nā Pali Coast State Park is a 6,175 acres Hawaiian state park located in the center of the rugged 16 miles along the northwest side of Kauaʻi, the oldest inhabited Hawaiian island. You can encounter whales and dolphins leaping above the ocean waters if you decide to ride a speed boat and sail along the coastline. You might even catch a glimpse of a sea turtle. You can also take a ride on the Holo Holo Power Catamaran charter boat which is the only charter boat that offers daily tours to both the Na Pali Coast and Forbidden Island of Niihau. Snorkeling equipment as well as other supplies are offered to those who want to experience the scenic routes along the ocean.

Waimea Canyon

Waimea Canyon, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, is a large canyon, approximately ten miles long and up to 3,000 feet deep, located on the western side of Kauaʻi in the Hawaiian Islands of the United States. A great place to hike for people.

Kilauea Lighthouse

It’s been 30 years since the lighthouse turned off its lights but nevertheless, the lighthouse still “shines”. The lighthouse, located at Kilauea Point, is a remnant of a former volcanic vent that last erupted about 500,000 years ago. (Today, only a small portion remains, including a 568-foot bluff.) The U.S. government purchased the Point in 1909 and began construction on a lighthouse, which was completed in 1913. For the next several decades, the Kilauea Lighthouse served as an important navigational aid for commercial shipping vessels sailing through the Hawaiian archipelago to and from the Orient. The lighthouse’s beam could reach 90 miles out to sea, and its lens was the largest of its type ever made.

Time and technology stand still for no one, however, and in 1976 the lighthouse was deactivated by the Coast Guard and replaced with an automatic beacon. Three years later, Kilauea Lighthouse was designated a National Historical Landmark.

Kauai Museum

Knowing a little bit of the history of Kauai might be a good way to start your vacation. The Kauai Museum is a Greco-Roman structure in the heart of Lihue that showcases the story of Kauai’s origins, both natural and political. Once inside, you’ll embark on a historical journey that began in 1778, when Captain James Cook dropped anchor in Waimea Harbor. The museum displays old maps of Hawaii and other relics from Cook’s voyage, as well as a model of his Royal Navy sloop, the HMS Resolution. The collection also features indigenous Hawaiian artefacts that Cook may have encountered during his 18th century tour of Kauai, including ornate feathered leis and wooden outrigger canoes. If you’re looking to bring a piece of Hawaiian history back home, the gift shop serves as the perfect place to pick up a souvenir.

Kalapaki Beach

Recommended as the beach to go to because of its peace and quiet and fewer little kids. It is good for sunning and swimming, but you can also rent a sailboat or kayak or take a catamaran cruise. Some travellers choose to take surfing lessons at Kalapaki, while others take a break from the sun’s rays by hanging out in one of the beachfront cafes or shops.

Want to have more than just a vacation?

Stay at Kauai retreats and have a meaningful, healthy, all-inclusive retreat instead of the usual exhausting, touristic vacation. If you are already on Kauai and need a break during your vacation or want to spend time relaxing, you might like to do yoga, a practice that not only makes you relax but also gives you a sense of peace, healing, and self-reflection. You can always stop by Kauai Retreats which offers an all-inclusive health and spiritual training and healing. Take a yoga class, meditate, and attend a workshop or a raw vegan cooking class. You can participate in the one day juice fast retreat or the one day Sadhana intensive (spiritual practice) retreat. You deserve to be healthy, you deserve to be happy. Make a reservation today! Start taking good care of your body, mind and spirit right now. It is never too late…You are alive anyway. Why not experiencing life from the top? With great health and souring spirit.
