Winter Activities on Kauai


Winter on Kauai is unlike any other. While normal winter activities may include hayrides, building snowmen and sipping hot cocoa by the fire, Kauai offers our very own tropical versions. We hope to find these activities become part of your family’s holiday traditions!

Instead of hayrides….

Whale watching on a zodiac! ‘Tis the season for spouts and breaching! Hop on a zodiac boat and zip out to the island’s surrounding waters to witness the migration of these majestic mammals. Here pods swim, sing and play together. A holiday affair your family won’t soon forget.

Instead of building snow men….

Build a sand castle on the sunny south side. As the winter months roll in the south shore is known for becoming increasingly flat. With such a relaxed shore break, children are ecstatic to find perfect sand castle building conditions. Not only that, but searching for sea shells, smooth stones and other nautical decorations is much more simple.

Instead of hot cocoa by the fire…

Discover the joys of “shave ice” while watching a fiery Hawaiian sunset.
A sweet and refreshing treat, shave ice is a local island staple. Perfect for any time of day, especially as the sun sets and you’re looking for a local, after-dinner treat.

Instead of snow-capped mountains….

We’ve got coconut palms swaying in the warm, salty breeze. We know this can’t compare to the cold, arctic joys of frozen fingers and red noses, but we must make do with what we have. And as you find yourself on the beach, digging your toes beneath the warm golden sand, you’ll realize that holidays on Kauai truly are one-of-a-kind.

Happy holidays and we look forward to seeing you on the island.
