As Hawaii's oldest island, Kaua`i has had plenty of time to grow, change and develop varied terrains - valleys, beaches, rivers, waterfalls, inland trails, mountains and panoramic vistas. Being that these are all natural attractions, they're all free too!
One day or more of your Hawaiian vacation can easily be spent enjoying the best of Kaua`i for free, and whether you're looking for free of cost fun or not, the good news is that these are truly the best Kaua`i has to offer. Folks that love the water, and those that love mountain treks and panoramic views are all in luck with our list of the 10 best free things to do on Kaua`i.
If you'd like to spend time under the sea, grab a mask an snorkel and head over to Lydgate Beach Park. The usually calm and protected pools offer a rainbow of tropical fish and underwater life that goes unrivaled on Kaua`i. For another type of water related thrills, Wailua Falls is the place to wander through a rainforest and view the falls from the bottom of the gorge or easily from the top off the falls.
For those that are more into inland cool weather, panoramic views and meandering hiking trails, Koke`e State Park, Waimea Canyon, and the Kuilau Ridge Trail all offer escape from the rest of the world.
So remember that you can save your cash for tasty meals and great drinks because the island has plenty to offer free of charge.
