Kauai Museum

There are two parts to this museum. Every aspect of the island's history, starting at its formation and winding up at present, is covered in the permanent exhibit in the Rice Building. Historic displays include ancient artifacts, scientific diagrams, and turn-of-the-century photographs. The Wilcox Building houses the Mezzanine Gallery, which features an ever-changing display of works by professional and amateur local artists, as well as other exhibits and the gift shop. The museum-sponsored events are geared toward the local community and tourists.

Kōkeʻe State Park

A favorite place for hikers, campers and picnickers, this park is located on the western shore of Kauai. The centerpiece here is the spectacular Waimea Canyon. One of the best ways to see the canyon is to hike the easy Iliau Nature Loop, located between Mile Marker 8 and 9. The Koke'e Natural History Museum, located inside the park, is a great place to learn about the surroundings, research the trails or pick up a map. Kōkeʻe State Park offers an opportunity to connect with nature, explore diverse ecosystems, and experience the awe-inspiring beauty of Hawaii's uplands.

Kauai Coffee Company

In California, tourists visit the wineries; in Hawaii they tour the coffee plantations. Kauai's largest coffee grower offers free tours around the estate. Visitors sip the finished product, wander among the coffee trees, and learn from the experts how coffee gets to the cup. This company is located on the Koloa Estate, a 3,400-acre estate that is known for its red dirt and pesticide-free practices.

Grove Farm Museum

If you want to get an idea of what the island looked like when sugar cane was the main industry, visit this restored historic property. Its many exhibits and displays give hints of what life was like on the sugar plantations of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tour the grounds, which at one point spanned 80 acres, or read up on literature. This is, understandably, a very popular destination for people on school field trips, cultural seminars and other educational excursions. Call in advance and reserve a time to tour the grounds.

Hanalei Bay

Located at the northern end of Kauai, Hanalei Bay is a long stretch of mesmerizing beauty. The picturesque setting of Hanalei Bay is perfect for a picnic with the family, and the turquoise sea is ideal for adventure sports. This crescent bay is fringed with palm trees, with the majestic mountains overlooking the beach. Winters bring an ideal atmosphere for surfers, while summers see a surge of swimmers and sailboats here.

Iraivan Temple

Iraivan Temple is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva on the Kauai Island, Hawaii. Maintained by Kauai’s Hindu monastery, this impressive structure is said to be the first all-stone, white granite structure built in the Western Hemisphere. A magnificent six-sided, single pointed uncut quarts crystal, believed as one of the largest one ever found of its kind forms the centerpiece of this beautiful place. Located near the Wailua River, it is among the must-visit places in Hawaii.
