With four kids this is definitely something I have experience with....how to have fun on Kauai with keiki! Here's a list of things sure to bring a smile to your kiddos....
1 Kamalani Bridge Playground at Lydgate beach park. Seriously one of the best playgrounds for at least 3,000 miles. It's nice to pack a picnic, go there early in the day, then spend the afternoon at Lydgate beach. Make a day out of it.
2 Go to Lydgate beach. Two huge boulder enclosed ponds allow fresh ocean water in but, big waves out. This is an excellent beach to swim and snorkel at. It's like swimming in an aquarium, lots of sea life to see here. The beach is lifeguarded and has full facilities.
4 Stop by the Kamokila Hawaiian Village for an education on ancient Hawaiian life and culture. See how Hawaiians lived centuries ago on the land they lived. For movie buffs, the village was used in the movie "Outbreak".
5 Rent a bike and ride the path. The Kauai Path is currently about 7 miles long. It begins at Lydgate beach park and ends just north of Kealia beach. What a fun way to tour Kauai's east side!
6 Check out Kauai Mini Golf in Kilauea. It's a combination miniature golf course and lush botanical garden. Fun for everyone!
8 Go fishing! You do not need a fishing license for saltwater fishing anywhere in Hawaii. Pick up a pole and gear cheaply and spend a day waiting for that big catch! It's so exciting to get a fish! Feel good releasing him back to the ocean if he's not of size or if your unsure about how to prepare him.
9 Learn to surf! Some of the best big wave surfers start in Kauai! Your keiki can too. There are plenty of surf schools on Kauai to choose from. They all offer a fun filled day with the thrill of riding a wave and teach safety and respect of the ocean.
