Beach Camping Kauai

Visiting Kauai? We know your time is precious, and we’re here to make sure you squeeze every drop of adventure out of your trip. That’s why Kauai Rooftop Campers offers you an all-in-one package to explore the island’s heavenly beaches. Ready to go beach camping in Kauai? Let us help you take your experience to the next level.


Where Comfort Meets the Coastline

Ever feel like traditional camping is a setup for inconvenience? With our service, you get quick, hassle-free setups and the advantage of mobility. Trust us; you won’t be lamenting the lumpy ground or contending with a tent full of mosquitos. It’s the only way to camp on the beach.

Our rooftop tents come with built-in 3-inch foam mattresses, and they’re spacious enough to rival your comfy queen bed at home.

Enjoy the Little Luxuries

We’re talking more than just sturdy shelters here. Our tents are fabricated from robust canvas materials capable of standing against Kauai’s unpredictable winds and rains. Added bonuses? Full mosquito netting and ventilated screen windows. So you can enjoy the ocean breeze without unwelcome guests.

Mileage as Boundless as Your Ambition

The spirit of Kauai is all about discovery. That’s why we offer unlimited miles with every rental. Our pricing is transparent and influenced by seasonal demand. 

Minimum rental time is two days, just long enough for you to realize you’re not ready to leave. And remember, you have to be 25 or older with full-comprehensive insurance to join in the fun.

Navigate with Confidence

Beach camping can be thrilling but also a tad nerve-wracking. Rest easy knowing we’ve got your safety covered. Just bring your valid driver’s license, insurance documents, and if you’re an international explorer, your passport, too. If it’s extra peace of mind you seek, we offer supplementary insurance via trusted third-party providers.

What To Expect from Our Rooftop Campers

Our rooftop camp cars are equipped with everything you need for a luxurious camping retreat in Kauai. Here’s some camping equipment we provide:

Comprehensive kitchen kit: Our kitchen kits are equipped with plates, bowls, knives, forks, chopping boards, washing-up soap, and much more, ensuring you have everything you need to prepare delicious meals during your adventure in Kauai’s stunning outdoors.

Comfortable bedding: Our exquisite bedding will make you believe that you’re staying in a 5-star hotel! With linen sheets, a queen-size mattress, and cloud-like pillows, you can expect a restful night’s sleep under the stars.

Additional Perks: It’s not just the essentials that make your camping trip memorable—it’s the perks! That’s why we offer a variety of amenities and services, such as beach chairs, camp tables, snorkels, and much more, so you can enjoy beach-related activities. We also offer a complimentary breakfast and fresh Kauai coffee!

Where to Camp in Kauai

Kauai is home to various beaches, making it the perfect place for beach camping. Here are some of the beaches you can check out:

Hanalei Beach Park: Known for its picturesque crescent shape and lush green backdrop, Hanalei Bay is a favourite for swimming, sunbathing, and water activities like surfing and paddleboarding.

Poipu Beach Park: This family-friendly beach on the south shore offers calm waters perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and observing marine life such as sea turtles and colourful fish. It’s also a great spot for picnics and sunset viewing.

Ke’e Beach: Located at the end of the road on the north shore, Ke’e Beach is renowned for its stunning scenery, clear turquoise waters, and excellent snorkelling opportunities along the adjacent reef.

These are just some of the beaches you can go for. However, it is essential that you have a valid camping permit for your designated beach. Camping permits are required for overnight stays at most beaches in Kauai. Be sure to check with the local authorities or park service for specific permit requirements and regulations before planning your camping trip.

Great experience with this company. They are very communicative and want to ensure you have a good trip and this is obvious with the lengths they go. The rental was in good condition. Jenni and Chantal were super friendly and would happily rent from them again!

My friend (first time camping) and I really enjoyed the approach that Kauai Rooftop Campers provide! Riding and camping on top of a 4Runner was outstanding. The setup system is quite easy and intuitive, Jeni (from Kauai Rooftop Campers) made sure we had all the info needed. We were able to interact with other campers who also were booking though Kauai Rooftop Campers, all of them seemed pleased with the experience! We had to rebook twice but everything went very well in the end. We had an issue with one of the State camping sites we booked for (Milloli´i beach) because we didn’t know Kauai, nevertheless, Jeni and Dona (Kumu Camp´s owner) were extremely helpful and very responsive. So, I would highly recommend Kauai Rooftop Campers! Additional notes and recommendations: We agree that Kumu Camp is a great spot to stay. There are Metal/Plastic/Glass bins for recycling (even a compost bin), so make sure you don’t dispose of those recyclables in the main garbage. Please be mindful, compact metal & plastic in order to improve space, time and resources. Don’t forget to leave every place better than you found it. We always had a container/bag at hand to collect the garbage at the camp, beaches, and other places. Microplastics and comercial tobacco butts are becoming a big issue everywhere! We advise you not to camp in Milloli´i beach unless you have access to a boat, and the time and the knowledge for an extreme adventure. NOTE: There isn’t that much info about that site out there. Blessings!!

As a family of 4, we combined a rooftop tent + ground tent, and it worked perfectly! The service from Kauai Rooftop Campers was excellent, they were really flexible (we even got an upgrade!) and they allowed us to store our excess luggage in their buildings for the duration of our trip. Jeni even came to us when there was a small issue, so nothing but compliments for the service we got! We stayed both at Kumu & at Koke'e state campground and had an abolute blast!

Beste Art Kauai zu erkunden. Wir hatten uns spontan dazu entschieden, da Hotel + Mietwagen schon sehr teuer sind. Buchung hat auch einen Tag for Antritt problemlos funktioniert! Hier bekommt man ein Camping Komplettpaket, alles was man braucht ist dabei. Man muss Camping plätze im voraus reservieren. Für County parks kostet das lediglich 3$ und für State parks 10$. Achtung, man kann nicht am selben Tag reservieren sondern immer nur ein Tag im voraus! Diese müsste man eig. ausdrucken oder zumindest downloaden, da es an manchen Locations kein Empfang gibt (haben wir gemacht wurden jedoch nie kontrolliert). Diese sind zum Teil auch an super coolen Orten, die auch nur mit einem Geländewagen erreichbar sind. Deshalb auch gut Essen und Trinken einkaufen, da es dort nichts zu kaufen gibt. Die Campingplätze haben oft lediglich eine Toilette mit fließendem Wasser (manchmal auch nur ein Plumpsklo). Für drei Personen sollte man schon um die 100$ pro Tag für Essen und Trinken einplanen. Komplette Küche ist dabei sodass man auch immer Essen zubereiten kann. Das Rooftop tent ist super bequeme und stabil (auch bei Orkanartigen Winden!). Aufbau ist auch super leicht. Leider ist es bei den meisten staatlichen Campingplätzen theoretisch "verboten", da man nicht mit dem Auto auf den Platz fahren kann. Es ist auch noch ein normales Zelt dabei, bei den abgelegen Plätzen im Westen hatte wir aber nie ein Problem einen guten Platz auch für das Rooftop tent zu finden. Alles in allem kann ich die Vermietung nur weiterempfehlen. Spezielle wenn man auch den Westen i.e. das Weimea Valley/off-road erkunden will. Man bekommt auch noch einen Tollen reise-guide physisch mit aktuellen Karten (manche off-road straßen fehlen leider auf Google maps) und digital auf Google maps (pins).

Camping on a Jeep Rubicon, that is an experience. We had a mega fun. The people from Kauai Rooftop Campers are extremely helpful and very friendly. They help with all questions. The next campground is Kumu Camping and is highly recommended. We will definitely come back again and book a Jeep Rubicon again.

Took a trip to Kauai for the weekend to Explore in an Overland Stye Toyota 4Runner! What a treat! We were able to explore the whole island in 3 days! Well, kinda… 3 days is not enough!! From Polihale to Ke’e Beach! The whole set up was perfect everything you need!! Everything! The check in process went smoothly, and Jeni explained everything very well, and the sent us all the info to our phones, so it was readily available!! You gotta do it!! There is so much to see and do!! We hiked a ton, and went to some really epic beaches!! They give you all the info you need to have an amazing time!!

This was my second time using Kauai Rooftop Campers. If you like camping in beautiful places, this is for you! Your vehicle comes equipped with lots of practical camping gear too. Ms. Jeni will probably get you checked in and she’s very helpful, and nice, and informative. I’ll be back!
