Hiking Kauai — One of the Best Ways to Enjoy Our Island

Did you know that about 90% of Kauai is not accessible by car?  If you simply drive up and down the Kuhio Highway, you will enjoy incredible ocean views to be sure but there is so much more to see.  And see it you can by hiking Kauai.

Kauai, always accommodating, has hikes for every skill level.  We have seen mothers pushing tots in strollers along a trail, enjoying the calm of the early day on Kauai.  We have had guests who barely sleep as they have a list of great hikes that they want to finish during their stay.

Hiking Kauai is an awesome way to truly experience the island’s natural beauty first hand and up close.  Kauai has many hiking trails and some say that the challenging 11-mile Kalalau trail along the Napali coast is the most famous one.  This trail starts at Kee Beach and some hikers camp out so that they can complete the entire hike.  Other day hikers just do the first 2 miles or so, stopping at Hanakapiai Beach for the day.  Remember, permits are required for camping and for any hikes beyond Hanakapiai valley and they can be obtained through the Hawaii State Parks Division.

We have already blogged about Waimea Canyon and we know that the canyon and Kokee State Park have some of the best hiking trails on island.  You can do a scenic lookout hike on the Awaawapuhi trail or a family-friendly hike on the Cliff canyon and Black Pipe trails.

After a day of hiking, you will want a clean and comfortable place to rest up and our affordable luxury condos offer just that. Come and stay with us and enjoy our warm Aloha.  You can book safely and securely on line at www.hulanow.com for any one of our Kauai vacation rental properties:
