Top 5 Wheelchair Friendly Experiences in Kauai
Whether you’re on land appreciating the vivid colors, jagged cliffs and lush greenery of the Napali coast; in the air mesmerized by the volcanoes and waterfalls while on a helicopter tour; or out on the ocean having a once-in-a-lifetime boating adventure - a vacation to Kauai offers unique experiences for anyone and everyone, regardless of ability. Gammie HomeCare is here to help maximize your experience by offering the best mobility equipment to rent during your Hawaiian vacation on the island of Kauai.
Below is a list of Gammie’s top five wheelchair-friendly recommended experiences in Kauai that will leave you wanting more!
Waimea Canyon Lookout
The Waimea Canyon is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. There is a 0.2-kilometer loop trail located near Wainiha, Kauai. The wheelchair-friendly loop track is moderately trafficked and primarily used for walking and nature trips. The park has lookouts of the canyon and scenic drives. It can also be viewed from a helicopter tour.
Ke Ala Hele Makalae
Located on the east side of Kauai on the Royal Coconut Coast, Ke Ala Hele Makalae has a paved trail, 8 miles long. The trail is relatively flat, making it suitable for wheelchairs, bikes, strollers, and joggers. It also has ample parking space where you can park and see your favorite spots. If you choose to visit between December through March, you may even get lucky enough to see whales and monk seals!
View Wailua Falls From a Vehicle
Another exciting place to tour is Wailua Falls. It is considered a double-tiered waterfall, although when water levels are high, there can also be a third tier. The geography is so unique that it was featured in the TV show Fantasy Island. Tourists appreciate that it is easy to access and requires no hiking. The parking lot overlooks the falls so you can easily enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the comfort of your vehicle.
Whale & Dolphin Boat Adventure
Are you intrigued by the fascinating lives of marine animals? If so, you’ve probably been anticipating a Kauai boating adventure where you can watch whales and dolphins in their natural habitat.
Princeville Botanical Gardens
While in Kauai, you may also want to enjoy a tour of the beautiful Princeville Botanical Gardens. There you will discover many unusual plant varieties you're unlikely to have seen before.
