12 Babymoon Activities To Do in Kauai

We’ve been to Oahu and Maui a few times, but heard Kauai was more chill so we thought that would be the perfect babymoon destination because the flight was short and it was a domestic location just in case. It turned out to be just the pace and environment we wanted for a wonderful time together before baby comes!

Here were my top 12 babymoon activities to do in Kauai:

  1. Waimea Canyon Lookout – very minimal walking with high payoff!
  2. Go dolphin watching – we were able to see so many dolphins! That was definitely a major highlight of the trip.
  3. Catamaran tour – since we couldn’t hike the Nā Pali Coast this time and preferred not to do a helicopter tour, we opted for a catamaran tour and it was fantastic! Most places have a cutoff before 26 weeks so keep that in mind.
  4. Snorkeling – I was still mid-2nd trimester, and I’ve snorkeled many times before so I felt very comfortable, but go at your own discretion. It was great to feel so buoyant and lightweight in the water!
  5. Red Dirt Falls – also very minimal walking, and the waterfall surrounded by mounds of red dirt looked very otherworldly!
  6. Pool time – we stayed at Kauai Marriott Beach Club, which had large pools so we relaxed in there a bit and I was able to bounce around. If possible, I’d recommend splurging on a room with a water view too. Many times if I got tired, we’d eat in our balcony overlooking the ocean and I wouldn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. Plus we’d turn off the AC at night and sleep with the sliding door open and the screen door closed just to hear the waves.
  7. Beach time – we didn’t go in the water this time but just laid in beach chairs for hours under the shade and listened to the crashing waves.
  8. Drive through the 500 eucalyptus tree tunnel – you end up driving through this tunnel a lot if you rent a car and travel around Kauai, but each time it’s pretty magical.
  9. Watch surfers at Poipu Beach – built in entertainment! It’s fun as a small crowd would gather and cheer for the surfers.
  10. Check out sea turtles – we saw one at Poipu Beach and just watched it from afar.
  11. Beachside couples massage – the resort we stayed at offered beachside couples massages, and every pregnant person needs all the prenatal massages they can get!
  12. Dinner with a water view – we had an incredible dinner at the Beach House and ended up hanging out there until after sunset just watching the huge waves and surfers.
