With idyllic weather and no shortage of adventure, there’s a reason vacationers return to Kauai time and time again. Sometimes called the Garden Island, the fourth-largest island is home to towering waterfalls, sandy beaches, stunning valleys, and more. While all of Kauai is breathtaking, each side is unique. See for yourself by staying on a different one each time you book a getaway with Kauai Exclusive Mangement. Our luxury vacation rentals are near some of the top attractions in Kauai, including ones on the East Side.
While Kauai is known as the Garden Isle, the East Side has earned the nickname the Royal Coconut Coast thanks to its groves of coconut palms. These plants, often found in the resort areas, aren’t the only picturesque examples of Mother Nature’s work you can see. Spend time inside Wailua River State Park, home to Fern Grotto and scenic waterfalls like Opaeka‘a Falls. See if you can make out the Sleeping Giant in the NouNou Forest Reserve or climb the face of the fabled figure on the 3.2-mile trail.
One of the biggest things that draws people to the East Side is the fantastic beaches. If you are vacationing with children, we recommend checking out Lydgate Beach Park. Two lava rock-enclosed ocean pools protect swimmers and snorkelers from open ocean waves. Other fantastic options include Kapa’a Beach Park, Waipouli Beach, and Keālia Beach.
Other Things to See and Visit
No matter where your interests lie, there is something on the East Side that fits the bill. Take your time wandering the shops that line the streets of Old Kapa’a Town. Learn about area history at the Kauai Museum or Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum, both in Lihue.
