Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Wailua, Kauai, Hawaii your home away from home

Wailua is on the east side of the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai which is famous for its beaches, sunshine and surfing. One of the best ways to experience the ‘Aloha spirit’ of Kauai is with a holiday rental home which makes a great base for exploring the local area. Wailua is a beautifully unspoiled area surrounded by opportunities for hiking, kayaking, shopping and dining along with the nearby Wailua golf course. The Nonou Forest Reserve, the Wailua River State Park and the Kalepa Mountain Forest Reserve surround the delightful town of Wailua.

Things to do in Wailua, Kauai Swimming and Snorkeling

Visit the nearby beaches at Princeville North Shoreincluding Pu’u Poa (Thumping Point) and the beautiful rocky Kaweonui Beach, although snorkelers should beware of the rip currents created by the reef. Ke’e Beach is the ideal place to snorkel in the calmer waters of the lagoon.

Strike the Bell Stone

When you strike the popular Bell Stone, a note resonates down the Wailua Valley. Kauain royal births were traditionally announced this way. Shopping:

The Heritage Centre of Hawaiian Culture sells authentic Hawaiian art and cultural souvenirs. Look for the Sunshine Markets which are local farmers’ markets on Kauai. They are held all over the island on different days so there should be one close to your Wailua holiday rental. Buy papayas, fruits and vegetables at rock bottom prices or just enjoy browsing around. Kukui Grove Shopping Center in Lihu’e is the largest shopping centre with all the US brands including Macy’s, Starbucks, K-Mart and more.
