Kauai’s east coast town of Kapa’a is Kauai’s largest residential area and home to many of the island’s best restaurants and boutique shopping opportunities. If you are wondering where to go in Kauai, be sure to pay a visit to Kapa’a.
What to Do
The main road in Kapa’a town is lined with small shops and restaurants great for exploring. In the north area of town, brightly painted shipping containers project an island aura and are an invitation to shop some of Kauai’s highest quality local vendors. The NoKa Fair shops are connected by a boardwalk and are a great place to pick up gifts and locally made products.
Kealia Beach, located on the northern end of Kapa’a, is a long stretch of sand ideal for swimming, boogie boarding, and surfing for those with experience. Lydgate State Park in the adjacent town of Wailua is ideal for families, offering a calm swimming area protected by an outer rock barrier. Delve into the underwater world at Lydgate to snorkel among tropical fish in the tranquil waters.
Kapa’a offers the best access points for enjoying the Kauai Multiuse Path, which follows the contour of the island’s east coast and offers unparalleled biking, walking, and jogging views. Rent bikes from one of the shops located in Kapa’a Town and cruise alongside beautiful coastline and beaches!
