What to Pack for Your Hawaii Vacation 2023

The best thing about visiting Kauai, Hawaii is you don’t need to pack much. As a local resident of Maui, who loves to island-hop to Kauai, believe me when we say this is all you need to pack for a trip to Kauai.

We aren’t loading this article full of things you need to buy. We are all about keeping your Kauai packing list to a minimum. Especially if you’re bringing the family, you want to keep your packing list to only the essentials.

Your essential packing list for Kauai includes the following:

  • Shorts and T-shirts
  • One Gorgeous Island Style Outfit
  • Comfortable Footwear: sandals and hiking or walking shoes
  • Swimsuit (of course)
  • Sun-Protective Clothing
  • Mineral-Based Sunscreen
  • UV-Protective Sunglasses
  • Backpack
  • Water Bottle
  • Beach Bag
  • Natural Bug Repellent

Don’t worry about forgetting something at home. Kauai is full of convenience stores, grocery stores, and shops for you to purchase a toiletry you forgot, extra reef-safe sunscreen, or aloe in the event you get burned at the beach!

That essential Kauai packing list is not all, read on for the right packing list for the Kauai vacation you are planning.
