Sightseeing on a Budget on Kauai

Sightseeing on a Budget on Kauai

You don't have to break the bank to enjoy Kauai’s spectacular scenery. The island’s small size and laid-back vibe make it possible to experience gorgeous beaches, tropical reefs, and lush jungles, all without splurging on big-ticket adventures. Here are our top tips for planning an unforgettable Kauai vacation on a modest budget. 

Pick Up a Paddle

Kayaking is a great way to explore Kauai’s coastline and unspoiled interior while avoiding the higher price tags of sailing tours.

Snorkeling Is for Everyone

Because Kauai is ringed by shallow reefs and calm bays, budget-friendly snorkeling is much more popular on the island than pricey scuba diving.

Book a Combo Tour

Combination tours may not look cheap at first, but they can be an economical way to fit two or more of your must-do activities into one packaged price.

Pack Your Hiking Shoes

Hiking trails for all levels crisscross Kauai’s landscape, from flat jaunts through the jungle to the epic Kalalau Trail, which hugs the sheer cliffs of the Na Pali Coast.
