From the most recent edition of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau Newsletter:

The Uniqueness of Kauai, A Highlight from Kauai’s Island Training Program

Visitors flock to Kauai to experience its lush tropical greenery, sparkling sand beaches and some of the Islands’ most extraordinary natural wonders. This combination is unlike any other area in the world. Special events in Kauai include:

Hanapepe Artist Night Walk – Friday night is art night in Hanapepe – Kauai’s biggest little town. Sixteen galleries and retail stores stay open late into the cooler evening hours (6 pm to 9 pm) as the town lights up with a party atmosphere.

West Kauai Craft Fair -The West Kauai Craft Fair features handsewn quilts, glass beads, photographs of Kauai, many kinds of handmade jewelry, koa wood bowls and so much more.

Other unique things you can do on Kauai:

  • Swim at one of 43 beaches. Those with lifeguards on duty include Lydgate Beach, Poipu Beach Park, Haena Beach Park, Hanalei Pavilion Beach Park, Salt Pond Beach Park and Kekaha Beach.
  • Take a boat to the Fern Grotto or along Napali’s stunning coast.
  • Rent a kayak and paddle along Huleia stream (where Indiana Jones escaped headhunters in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark) or along the Wailua, Hanalei or Kalihiwai Rivers. For a wilder ride, ocean kayaking along the Napali Coast was deemed the second best adventure in the country by National Geographic Adventure.
  • Ride a mountain tube down gently flowing waters, through tropical forests, secret tunnels and open canals.
  • SCUBA dive at thrilling spots on the east and west shores, or locales on the north or south shores. Dive outfits offer daily excursions, rent gear and provide certification.
  • Snorkel the reefs off Kee Beach, Haena Beach Park, Tunnels Beach and Salt Pond Beach Park. Anini Beach is perfect for beginners.
  • Whale watch from December to April. Get close to the awesome creatures on a boat tour, from Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, while sitting on the beach, your balcony or lanai.
  • Go deep-sea fishing for mahi mahi, ahi (yellow-fin tuna), ono (wahoo), sku (skipjack tuna) and blue marlin.
