This truly spectacular area is nestled on the upper east coast of Kauai, one of the lushest places on earth. From here, it's about a four-mile drive down the coast to Wailua, and about four miles up to Kealia, another beautiful coastal town. Drive about 30 miles north to explore the legendary Napali Coast on the north side of the island.
Pack your comfortable walking shoes and raingear—Kapaa is brimming with gorgeous hikes and waterfalls! Ho'opi'i Falls is particularly popular, and many visitors also enjoy the Ho'olalaea Waterfall. For a more relaxing day, explore the shore at Kapaa Beach Park, or simply bring a picnic to enjoy with the sound of the waves.
Kayaking is very popular in Kauai, so there are plenty of places in Kapaa to rent one. After you're done with the day's adventures, head to the quaint town for dinner and drinks and do some souvenir shopping.
Once you experience the magic of Kauai, you may not want to ever leave—and we don't blame you! Whether you're here for outdoor excursions or are seeking peace and quiet in a tropical setting, you'll find one of our Kapaa vacation rentals to suit your every need.
