Kauai is a mecca for active people who wish to kayak the Wailua River, hike one of dozens of trails, snorkel, snuba, go horseback riding, drive an all-terrain vehicle (ATV, or Quad), fly a zipline, surf, bodyboard, SCUBA dive, paddle a stand-up board, kite-surf, or camp out. Note: You need to get a permit for camping out. It’s simple and inexpensive. Find the information in the Ultimate Kauai Guidebook.
Not all the island is accessible by car or foot. Consider booking a helicopter ride or a boat cruise (we recommend Holo Holo or Captain Andy) to see the majestic Na Pali cliffs.
