Activities

There are an unlimited number of fun things to do on Kauai. The north shore of the island of Kauai is world-famous for its lush, tropical beauty, and the area surrounding Hanalei Colony offers a wealth of natural and cultural attractions, activities, and sightseeing opportunities. Within just a short drive from our vacation condos, you’ll find many of the island’s most popular activities, allowing you to explore the island from land, sea, or sky. Hiking trails are abundant, and the north shore beaches are spectacular, providing a wide range of water sports including snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking. Boat tours and helicopter excursions are two of the most memorable sightseeing experiences on Kauai, transporting you to hidden areas that are accessible only by sea or air. Horseback riding, championship golf, zip lines, and botanical gardens are all nearby. And Kauai’s wildlife presents its own diversion, with humpback whales spouting offshore and native birds nesting in protected north shore sanctuaries.

You can be as busy or as “un-busy” as you want on Kauai. That’s part of its magic. Spend your days lolling peacefully on the beach, or get out and explore all the attractions this magnificent island has to offer. The choice is yours.
