Drive your Kauai rental car across the island on a grand adventure
So you're headed to the Hawaiian islands in search of some sun, sand and relaxation. Don't forget to add a little adrenaline to your agenda - there are incredible things to see and do with the help of a Kauai rental car. Cross the island to find the best pineapple, beach or even zip line adventures. Here are a few items to add to your vacation agenda:
Sometimes known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," Waimea Canyon is certainly a beautiful sight to behold. This massive crater is 14 miles long and a mile wide. If you were to rappel in from the top, you'd travel a total of 3,600 feet, across red rock and green plant life that has been here for thousands of years. Many people flock to this location to stand at overlooks and take in the scenery. Others opt to hike the rim and catch a glimpse of the stunning geological features from the many vistas available. Word to the wise - watch out for fog warnings. Some days the rainforest fog comes rolling into the canyon and makes it difficult to see. Look for warmer days when there is less of a chance for fog so you can get the full Waimea Canyon experience.
As a parent, it's your job to keep your kids safe, and the beach is one location where you've got to be on duty at all times. At Poipu beach, there are lifeguards every day of the week to make sure your family has a safe and fun time. This incredible coastal oasis has a breaker to keep the waves at a minimum, allowing for even the most novice of swimmers to enjoy taking a dip. The soft sand is great for spreading a towel out and soaking up some sun, and you can even spot exciting sea life, try surfing or boogie boarding. Bring sunscreen, as you'll want to stay here all day.
