Things to do Nearby Marriott Kauai

With Marriott Kaua’i Beach Club and Marriott Kaua’i Lagoons being less than a mile away from one another, many of the same experiences and attractions are local to guests of both resorts. Discover the exciting vacation possibilities below.

Sightseeing Around Kaua’i

The area around Marriott’s Kauai resorts is teeming with breathtaking views and natural wonders. For instance, a can’t-miss nature experience can be found at Wailua River State Park. Take a riverboat cruise down the thriving river valley to Fern Grotto, a mystical fern-covered cave tucked away in a sprawling garden. What’s more, Opaeka’a Falls, a 151-foot-tall, 40-foot-wide waterfall, is a truly breathtaking destination found two miles up Route 580.

Thrilling Activities on Land, Water, and Air

With 90 percent of Kauai being inaccessible by car, you’ll find yourself scaling steep terrain and flying through the air in no time. In fact, many of the sites of various movie scenes are only reachable by air. So, if you’re looking to visit the iconic Manawaiopuna Falls from Jurassic Park, you’ll have to hop aboard a helicopter for an aerial view, then land. You’ll find opportunities for ziplining through rainforests, horseback riding, water sports, and hiking all along the east shore of Kauai, so make sure to pack some sturdy sneakers.

Golfing on the East Shore

Of course, Kauai Beach Club has an 18-hole course of its own, but there are even more courses in the surrounding area. For example, the Puakea Golf Course and Wailua Golf Course are two absolutely gorgeous options in both resorts’ vicinity. Puakea Golf Course stuns as the looming mountains rise above the fairway. Play through mountain-fed streams and daunting ravines for a satisfactory game. Moreover, the Wailua Golf Course is an 18-hole course right on the ocean. This course is complete with a putting green and practice bunker, as well as lovely views of the landscape.
