When visiting Kauai’s beautiful East Side, stay in Wailua. Wailua is your nexus to incredible new memories and some of
the best destinations on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Wailua rentals are among the island’s hottest properties, praised for their proximity to many incredible natural wonders.
Set yourself adrift on Hawaii’s only navigable river. The Wailua River is set between two colorful, lush banks. Between these banks are the gently flowing waters, gentle enough to take on your own. Rent a Kayak for an unforgettable adventure. Nearby your rental, you’ll have many options to explore this incredible part of the island. Wailua kayak tours give visitors a panoramic view of the island’s wildlife and terrain. You’ll be treated to a beautiful fern grotto, rumbling Secret Falls, and a number of other tropical destinations. If kayaking isn’t for you, charter a boat
tour for a fascinating journey down the river.
Opaeka’a Falls is the area’s centerpiece. These stunning falls are an impressive attraction for water enthusiasts and sightseers alike. Easily accessible to the public, this destination is truly a gem in the island’s crown. Luckily, our
East Shore vacation rentals put tourists at the center of island
life with a wide array of natural destinations to choose from. You can fill every day with
adventure or relaxation, set among some of the world’s most lush rainforests.
Wailua is an area rich in
history with beauty as far as the eye can see. Behold the Bell Stone, central to the Wailua Valley. The Bell Stone was used to announce royal births.
When struck, the red stone sends a sharp note over the valley below. Try it
yourself and be enamored with the crisp notes and the beautiful view. The valley itself is
lush and ready to be hiked. Strap on your hiking gear, treating yourself to eyefuls of beauty with each step of your journey.
Poliahu Heiau is another nearby destination soaked in history and visual splendor. This destination was named for Hawaii’s Snow Goddess. This beautiful area features a number of interesting idol sites. The legendary area is Kauai’s largest heiau, or place of worship. Here you’ll find the impressive God
Stone as well as a number of terraces. Outlined by large palm trees and edged in stone, this is just another of Kauai’s beautiful East Side delights.
Of course, no Hawaiian vacation is complete without a trip to the beach. Wailua Beach is a long stretch of
sands and surf. This beautiful destination is perfect for swimming, sailing, surfing, fishing,
paddling and so much more. Spend a day picnicking on the beautiful shores, splashing in the
surf and taking in the often striking views. The Wailua River flows into these waters, making for some interesting waves. Although this isn’t a surfing destination for beginners, it is an excellent place for seasoned surfers to take on some interesting waves.
When you’re able to tear yourself away from the natural splendor, why not head over to the Kinipopo Shopping Village? Here you’ll be able to grab a bite to eat, or do some shopping. You can stock up on groceries, purchase a new bikini, or get your hands on some gear, like surfboards and body boards. This area also includes the Steelgrass Chocolate Factory, where your senses will be treated to the smells and tastes of cocoa.
The natural splendor of Kauai is legendary and never fails to impress. Even the most experienced
traveler who stays in one of many available Wailua cottages for rent will feel like they’re experiencing Kauai in an entirely new way. Renters enjoy the comfort, and ease, of living in an actual residence, instead of the cramped confines of a stuffy hotel room. With the freedom to relax, and settle in among the locals, some people find the island nearly impossible to leave. You may find yourself making travel plans for next time, even while boarding your plane home.
