Kauai Travel Tips
Bring a good pair of hiking shoes with you to Kauai, as the island is known for its fantastic hikes. From Kokee State Park to the Napali Coast at Haena State Park, there are more than enough trails at varying degrees of difficulty for you to choose from, whether you’re an experienced hiker or an ohana with little ones in tow.

Kauai is also known for being one of the wetter islands in the state, and you can expect brief tropical rains from time to time, especially if you’re on the northern edge of the island. It’s always best to have a light jacket or hoodie on hand for such wet occasions.

If you’re looking to enjoy the ocean while visiting Kauai, know that the winter months can see elevated swell and wave conditions on northern coasts—and that it’s best to heed all warning signs and to check your own ability as a swimmer before entering the ocean on more turbulent days. When in doubt, don’t go out.
