Kauai Itinerary Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Kauai for 8 nights next July. We will be 30 years old and are in pretty good shape. We have decided to devote half the trip to "adventure" stuff liking hiking and a boat trip. The other days we want to see sites at a more leisurely pace. I read the Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, which is great, but didn't really help me narrow down what I wanted to see.

The days I need help on are the South Day (Poipu Area), the North Day (Hanalei Area), and the Free Day. I don't want to overbook these days as our hiking days should be exhausting enough. Please tell me what sites you would list as must sees for these days. We will be renting a jeep. Also, for our departure day, what would you recommened in the Kapa'a/Lihue area to occupy us until our late flight?

Interests:
I love looking at scenery. I don't really like swimming in ocean water. I get bored pretty quickly at beaches if we are just sitting, but walking on beaches is nice. I prefer places that are quiet and not crowded (I know this is rough in July). We love history, archeology, and geology.

The Koloa Plantation Days Festival will be happening while we are there. Is this worth visiting?

We aren't currently planning to hike the Kalalau to Hanakapi'ai, but might if it is worth it (unique enough to the hike on the ridge tops in Koke'e). It would take up most of a day and we don't have that many for general site seeing as it is.

Wednesday - July 17 - Arrive at 2:30pm, Check into B&B in Kapa'a
Thursday - July 20 - Na Pali Coast Boat Trip (Morning), Polihale (Afternoon)
Friday - July 19 - Na Pali Ridge Top Hike
Saturday - July 20 - South Day (Poipu Area)
Sunday - July 21 - Jungle Hike
Monday - July 22 - North Day (Hanalei Area)
Tuesday - July 23 - Waimea Canyon Hike
Wednesday - July 24 - Free Day
Thursday - July 25 - Check out of B&B, Shopping, Depart at 10:00pm

Thanks everyone for your help.
