A natural jewel among the Hawaiian Islands, Kauai’s pristine coastline begs to be explored and its history unearthed. Discover why Kauai is a place distinct from other islands of Hawaii as you venture to its nature preserves, study its prehistoric sites, and meet members of its diverse community as they share their cultural and ethnic traditions. Visit the village of Hanalei — with its rural valley landscape featuring taro farms, protected waterbird habitats, and historical architecture — and see for yourself why it is truly one of Kauai’s special places.


• Explore Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, home to the largest population of seabirds on the Hawaiian Islands.
• Immerse yourself in local history during field trips to Grove Farm Homestead Museum, Kauai Museum and the Kokee Natural History Museum.
• Trace the history of Kauai during an interactive afternoon at the West Side Technology Center.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles; elevations of 3,000 feet.
