Things to Do on Gay Kauai
There are a lot of great things to do on the island – we’ll run down a few of our favorites here.
Going southeast along the highway, you’ll pass Kilohana Plantation, one of the original plantation homes on Kauai, now converted to a cultural center and home to a restaurant and several small shops.
Stop here for a few hours and take a Carriage Ride around the plantation, learning about old Hawaii from your knowledgeable guide.
Or see how local crafts are made while you wander the beautiful mansion, as local artisans create their work in front of you.
Drive Through the Tunnel of Trees
Turn off the main highway at the Koloa Town/Poipu exit, and enter the Tunnel of Trees (pictured at left), a beautiful shaded drive at the entry to the Poipu area. This green, shaded corridor was planted 150 years ago by Walter Duncan McBryde, a Scottish man who was a local cattle rancher. During Hurricane Iniki in 1992, the trees were mostly stripped, but they have bounced back in the intervening years, and the Tunnel is now as lush as it was pre-Hurricane.
