Biking On Kauai
There are plenty of options for bike rentals on Kauai, with a majority of them being in Kappa/Wailua, due to the perfect bike path that cruises along the ocean. Most bike rental places in Kapaa, charge from $15-$30 a day for just your regular beach cruiser, which is what most people think of when they imagine themselves coasting alongside the ocean. If you have kids that can’t ride a bike yet, many of rental shops have the bike trailers, and if your youngster has “mastered” the art of riding a bike, they also offer kid sized bikes.
For those of you looking to keep up on your training regiment or just plain want to explore Kauai by bike, a few shops also offer nice road bike options, ranging from $30-$50 a day. Just keep in mind a lot of Kauai’s roads don’t have very big shoulders to ride on, so you will be riding with the cars.
If you are wanting to go up and explore Waimea Canyon’s vast amount of bike trails, then you should rent a mountain bike, they range from $30-$50 a day. Make sure you are careful while riding as every trail has something new around each corner.
Side note: All shops decrease the daily price if you rent for more then one day.
