Fun Birthday Party Locations on Kauai

Wondering “Is there a great place for a children’s party near me in Kauai?”

Known as the garden island for good reason, Kauai is filled with Mother Nature’s wonders making it a perfect place to celebrate! Aside from making sure you have all of the right party entertainment, the location is the next most important decision.

Keep reading to discover 7 of the best outdoor children’s birthday party locations for your child’s next party on the beautiful island of Kauai.


Birthdays at Beaches and Playgrounds

A natural choice for a keiki birthday party on Kauai is the beach or a playground. Send someone early to save your spot, plan ahead for challenging parking congestion by coordinating a carpool, or check with the local parks and recreation department to see if you can reserve tables.


1. Lydgate Beach Park near Kapaa

This park is on the east side of Kauai and has both swimming and grassy park with tables nearby. Visitors will find plenty of parking and picturesque backdrops perfect for photos you’ll cherish forever. You can have the birthday food in the picnic area, then move on to swimming or playing.

Here, rocks surround a calm, shallow pool where children can swim with docile tropical fish—there’s a lifeguard, but make sure you have enough adults to watch the kids. It’s also home to a huge wooden play structure, a wonderland of rope bridges, slides, monkey bars, and swings.



2. Baby Beach in Poipu

Part of Poipu Beach on the southern end of the island, Baby Beach is protected by a rocky reef that makes a small, super calm area for little ones. You’ll not only see tropical fish, but monk seals sunbathing on the sand and sea turtles enjoying the calm waters (and the fish). Be sure not to approach seals or turtles as they are protected by federal law. There are also nearby grassy areas to have entertainment. The only parking available is on the street, so if you’re showing up with a group find someone with a car that’s carpool-friendly to save you parking hassles when you arrive. *FYI there is another “Baby Beach” in Kapaa that’s much smaller and not the easiest for parties.



3. Isenberg Park in Lihue

Isenberg Park in Central Lihue has shaded picnic areas to keep the hot sun off little ones and a convenient fenced play area, making it easier to watch over keiki. If you’re planning to be there at night, it also has two lit sports fields. Most important for anyone with small children, there are bathrooms. This is a great spot to use an entertainment service who provides everything from balloon animal entertainers to popular characters in costumes to complete luaus.



4. Prince Albert Park in Princeville

For sporty kids, Prince Albert Park in Princeville on the North Shore boasts a fitness circuit where kids can do push-ups and pull-ups and other activities—you could make a party activity out of this. It also has three large play structures for kids of all ages, plus swings.

In fact, the park is so nice that local schools take field trips there. Plus, it’s across from the library, so you could also make story time part of your celebration.

Another North Shore Kauai park to check out is the Anaina Hou Community Park which just redid their playground and is located next to Kauai’s only mini golf course.


Waterfall Birthday Adventures


5. Waipo’o Fall Trail

Of course, Kauai’s known for its many waterfalls. Waipo’o Falls Trail, off Highway 550 on the northwest part of the island, is a few miles of moderate hiking and, depending on the weather, possibly muddy hiking. It ends above the falls, with several viewpoints of gorgeous scenery. Children ages 8 and up will enjoy this hike.



6. Kōkeʻe State Park

Kōkeʻe State Park, on the Nā Pali Coast, is listed as one of the most beautiful places in the world, so why not have a birthday party everyone will remember? 

The entrance is free, but they do take donations. There are several lookout points and a museum where you can see waterfalls, plus a picnic area. Hikes range from easy strolls to challenging treks to look at the waterfalls up close on 45 miles of trails.  Definitely bring older children to this location. If you’re feeling ambitious, rent a camping spot for $12 ($18 for non-residents).



7. Secret Falls

If you’ve got older kids who are up for a real outdoorsy adventure and you have access to some kind of kayak or rowboat, Secret Falls (proper name: Uluwehi Falls) is an exciting option.  

The Wailua river begins in the town of Wailua, on the east side of the island close to Lydgate Park. Start at the boat ramp on Kuamoo Road, go a half hour up the river, then take the north fork until it becomes too shallow to go any further—about 15 more minutes. Tie up your kayak or boat, then follow the trail for another 20-30 minutes. Check weather conditions; only go when there’s no heavy rain, or you could be caught in a dangerous flash flood. There are also plenty of companies that have guided tours to Secret Falls.
