Kauai is called the “Garden Island” for a reason. Hawaii’s fourth-largest island is covered in lush greenery and majestic mountains. One of the best ways to experience this beauty is by driving along the different shores of the island. During your stay at a vacation home from Kauai Exclusive Management, leave a day to explore things to do on the North Shore that’ll have you surrounded by stunning scenery the entire day.

A Guide to What You Can Discover on Kauai’s North Shore

The North Shore is filled with sandy beaches, lush taro fields, impressive mountains, and more. Set off early from your vacation rental to give yourself plenty of time to explore. Kilauea, Hanalei, Haena, Princeville, and Anini all lie on the northern side of Kauai, and each town has fantastic things to do and see.

  • See where parts of Gilligan’s Island were filmed by stopping at Moloaa Beach.
  • Take in the views from the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse on the northernmost tip of Kauai. This 52-foot lighthouse was built in 1913 and is one of the most visited attractions on the island. The lighthouse is the centerpiece of the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge
  • Learn about Kauai’s history during your stop at the Waioli Huiia Church and Mission House, which was once home to early Christian missionaries in the 1800s.
