Imagine spending your next vacation on one of the most beautiful Islands in Hawaii! Your days are filled with exploring miles of unpopulated white sand beaches close by, hiking the lush verdant mountains of Koke'e, or perhaps an adventurous boat tour
to experience the breathtaking Na Pali coast. Maybe you choose to explore that book you've been promising yourself and kick back and relax on your oceanfront lanai enjoying cocktails and Island-style pupus watching the sun set over the Forbidden Island of Ni`ihau. The possibilities are endless, the surroundings are the definition of paradise!
There's no end to the list of Kauai activities you can particpate in during your stay on the Garden Isle. Whether it be just stepping out on the lanai of Hale Puka`Ana and taking in the early morning fresh air followed by a leisurely stroll down the white sand beach, or heading to the #1 tourist destination on the island; adjacent Koke`e Park/ Waimea Canyon- the magic of the Garden Island follows you every step of the way.

The Waimea Canyon - Kokee State Park
If scenic hikes are your "meditation" then Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific
is the place for you to be. Numerous hiking trails and scenic viewpoints await you as you make your way to some of the most breathtaking vistas in the Hawaiian Islands.
Take the opportunity along your hike to experience some "ornithology" (bird watching) as Kokee and the west side provide some of the most unique birds in the islands. There is also seasonal Trout and Bass fishing in Kokee as well.
Hikes range from easy to difficult. Take your pick!
Polihale State Park
West of Hale Puka`Ana are the beaches of Polihale State Park. Be sure to bring your camera and get some postcard-perfect shots of the West end of the magnificent NaPali Coast and the magnificent sunset!
