Island Activities

Kauai is perfect for the those seeking the most restful and unchallenged enjoyment of the island to those who want to test their very soul with exhilarating adventures. Again, we suggest you consult the Lonely Planet: Discover Kauai or The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, located within our condo, for a nearly complete list and description of possible activities. And, there are numerous other free publications at the Lihue airport and grocery stores, including a magazine called 101 Things to Do, which will entice you with activity options.

Below is a list of some activities, which you may want to consider:

  • Humpback Whale Migration
    • During whale season, you can spend around $100 per person, for a few hours of whale watching from a boat, or you can stay in HollysKauaiCondo and enjoy some of the best humpback whale viewing, all day, every day, from the comfort of every room and the lanai, for FREE.
    • When is whale watching season in Kauai? The humpback whales tend to migrate past Kauai between November and April.
    • HollysKauaiCondo has one of the best locations for whale watching and one of the best views of humpback whale migration, in Kauai.
    • Why search for the best discounted whale watching trips when you can watch the whales for FREE, from HollysKauaiCondo?
    • How good is the humpback whale watching? Donald, a frequent guest says, “we were entertained by a pod of whales frolicking not far from shore! They were thwacking the water audibly with their huge tails. Here was this free show that was more entertaining than whale-watching we have paid for in the past! What a way to enjoy breakfast!”Noel, another guest, wrote: “There must have been two dozen… we think we counted fifteen, then it’s difficult to count beyond that.” See our Testimonials page, for Noel’s full account.

  • Hiking
    • There are numerous hiking opportunities in Kauai. There is a small amount of walking/hiking involved with visiting Lumahai, Hideaway, Sea Lodge and Secret Beach, as well as Queen’s Bath. But, if you want a real hike, there are several which you might want to consider.The Na Pali coast from Kee Beach to Polihale State Park has no roads, with access only assessable by foot, boat or helicopter fly over. This 11 mile Kalalau Trail hike, the ultimate most famous hike in Kauai, requires a permit which needs to be obtained well in advance. The Kalalau Trail was highlighted in the movie “A Perfect Getaway”, but this 2 mile stretch of the 11 mile hike, is not as challenging as depicted in the film.You can, without a permit, hike the first 2 miles of the Kalalau Trail, from Kee Beach to Hanakapiai Beach and, if you are more energetic, 2 more miles to Hanakapiai Falls. Take your camera, for incredible photo opportunities. Also, carry plenty of water. Consult the “Ultimate Kauai Guidebook” for more information about these hikes and many more.
