Things to do in Kauai with kids

Kauai is Hawaii’s fourth largest island, and just as beautiful as all the others! How does this grab you…jagged cliffs, mountain spires, tropical rain forests centuries old, and cascading waterfalls….sounds pretty awesome doesn't it!

Well, it’s all there waiting for your family when you visit Hawaii!

Kauai is a super fun place for those active families, especially if you LOVE the outdoors! You can brave the island’s LONGEST zip line with Koloa Zipline, have a horseback adventure with Princeville Ranch, river fun with Mountain Tubing Adventures, and even go back into history with Kauai Plantation Railway!

The ocean is a HUGE part of Kauai’s appeal, and there are plenty of ways to explore it - zodiac, raft, catamaran….and attractions like Kasui Sea Tours offers them all!

There is culture in the small towns, as well as museums like Kauai Museum and Kokee Natural History Museum, and beautiful state parks to explore…just visit Waimea Canyon, Koke’e or Polihale…and you will see why families and kids love them so much!

A incredibly beautiful family adventure waiting to be had on this Hawaiian island!
