Kilauea is a small town on the northeastern shore of Kauai, one of the eight islands that make up the state of Hawaii. Step out of the city life by going to Na Pali Coast State Park and Hanalei Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Anahola Beach Park and Haena Beach Park. Step out of Kilauea to go to Kapaa and see Kuilau Ridge Trail, which is approximately 30 minutes away. There's more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Wai`oli Hui`ia Church.
