Flights And Sights

Flying To Kauai With American Airlines

Plunge into the clear warm water of the Pacific when you take an American Airlines flight to Kauai, the oldest island in the main Hawaiian chain. Laze about on the beach, head to the mountains with the family to explore Kauai's own Grand Canyon, or challenge yourself with a round of championship golf when you fly to Kauai with American Airlines.

Soak up the beauty of the beaches

Kauai has more white-sand beaches than any other Hawaiian island. As the warm tropic trade winds drift from the ocean, inhale the salty air and feel the soft, golden sand caress your toes. Embrace your sweetheart on a romantic moonlit night on the crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay.

Explore the deep multi-colored caverns and red lava inside the Waimea Canyon

Take the family on an adventure to the place locals call the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific." You can observe its features—it's fourteen miles long, one mile wide and more than 3,600 feet deep—by car, from one of its lookouts, or by foot, on its trails.

Indulge in a Hawaiian massage at the elegant ANARA Spa

Visit the spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort in the luxurious resort community of Poipu. Known for its extensive services, including a "four-hand" massage, the spa also features lava rock showers that open to the tropical air, a 24-head Swiss shower, Turkish steam rooms, Finnish saunas and botanical soaking tubs.

Feel inspired by the spectacular greens of the Makai Golf Club

Watch your shot and aim carefully—it's easy to let the vista of the serene azure lakes, craggy mountain peaks and verdant bluffs distract you from your game at one of Kauai's top golf courses.

Float, swim, snorkel or surf at Poipu Beach

Explore the waters in a safe, small tide pool, or don fins and mask to snorkel in the shallow reefs. Novices learning how to "hang ten" enjoy surfing the gentle waves.

More Things to Do in Kauai

Follow American Airlines as we go off the beaten path to discover more things to do on Kauai. Take the family exploring through a high mountain rainforest, glimpse what Eden must have looked like along the Na Pali Coast or soar over the island in a helicopter seeing sites only visible from the air. American will be with you every step of the way.

Wander through a high mountain forest with the family in Kokee State Park

The park features a combination rainforest and bog at 4,000 feet on the West Side of Kauai. The park's 45 miles of trails will give your family options ranging from casual nature strolls to hardy camping and hiking adventures among the redwoods.

Discover why Kauai is called the "garden island"

Adventurous nature lovers will want to hike to see the lush tropical valleys, thundering waterfalls and colorful plants, but if you're pressed for time or want to relax, a boat cruise will get you an exclusive offshore view of this paradise.

Soar over the island, swooping into sunlit canyons and lush tropical valleys, with a helicopter ride

It's the best way to see all of Kauai, as most of it is not accessible by land. You seem to float effortlessly in the air, and then suddenly the copter will zoom down low, skitter over razor-thin cliffs, and flutter past sparkling waterfalls.

Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens

Dotted with about 70 life-sized (and some large than that) whimsical bronze statues, the gardens are hidden off the beaten path of the North Shore. Get lost in its maze, sip tea at the Japanese teahouse and let the kids loose in the tropical garden, complete with a treehouse.

Make a pilgrimage to an exotic Hindu temple

Carved out of rocks brought in from India, the San Marga Iraivan Temple is located on the banks of the Wailua River where an ancient Hawaiian temple once stood. The Chola-style sanctuary under construction is part of the Saiva Siddhanta Church Monastery and offers daily tours.
