The only navigable rivers in Hawaii are in Kauai, and Wailua is widely considered one of the best! Stretching over 20 miles long, guests have a variety of options for exploring the tropical river. Whether you choose to travel by kayak, outrigger canoe, boat tour or even driving on the road that closely follows the river, guests easily take in its amazing views.
The Wailua River Valley is also home to the Wailua Complex of Heiaus. This National Historic Landmark contains the remains of several important structures such as places of worship, places of refuge and sites related to royal births.
