Kauaʻi is known for its slow pace. Here, there are no freeways and only a handful of luxury resorts. There are no bars that keep drinks flowing late into the night. Heck, there aren’t even any buildings taller than a coconut tree. But while Kauai is thoroughly laid-back, there is still plenty to do. From snorkeling off the Na Pali Coast to tubing through irrigation canals, here are the top ten Kauai activities.
