Make a vacation rental on Kauai, Hawaii your home away from home

Kauai vacation rentals are located on the Kauai, the most northern of Hawaii’s major islands. It is also the oldest island in consequence of which it has more miles of sandy beach than any of the other islands.

Things to do in Kauai, Hawaii

With so much sea and sand it is not surprising that most visitors to Kauai self-catering vacation accommodation come for the beaches; snorkelling, swimming, surfing and relaxing in the sun are all obvious pursuits. There is, however, much more to do. Kauai has some wonderful mountain bike and hiking trails especially around the Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Cliffs. Check out some of the hiking tours and down hill bike tours.

Wherever your Kauai vacation rental is on the island it will be near one of the many navigable rivers making river tubing and kayaking popular holiday occupations. On days when the surf is calm it is even possible to combine kayaking down the river with paddling around the bays and along the ocean shoreline. On days when the rivers are running fast tubing and kayaking can be very exciting.

There are several small towns and villages that are worth visiting while staying in Kauai holiday accommodation. Hanalei is a delightful Hawaiian village to the north, just a short way from the Na Pali coast, an incredible geological feature with sheer cliffs thousands of feet high. If you want a little less nature and a little more creature comforts then to the east of the island you’ll find Kapa’a, a small town with a cinema, internet café and several good restaurants.

Places to visit on holiday on Kauai, Hawaii

A short inter-island flight to Honolulu from your Kauai holiday home makes for a great day out in a completely different setting.

Enjoy some of the excellent local cuisine and soak up the laid-back atmosphere.
