KAUAI — "The Garden Island"
Blessed with tropical beauty, Kauai, "The Garden Island," is a tranquil haven of lush vegetation and sparkling oceans. Kauai is the oldest of the populated Hawai’ian Islands; the forces of wind and water have had six million years to carve steep cliffs and spectacular yawning chasms, which are now carpeted with rich vegetation and fringed by long, white, sandy beaches. Today it is a quiet island, with no structure higher than a coconut tree.
Visitors to Kauai can enjoy some of nature’s most spectacular creations, from the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" to the twin cascades of Wailua Falls, the thrilling Na Pali coast and even one of the rainiest places on earth.
Just 20 minutes by air from Honolulu, Kauai is a world away, and uniquely Hawai’ian. There are more things to do here than you’ll have the time – or inclination – to do; after all, ‘hanging loose’ and relaxing is a popular pasttime here. If you prefer activities, however, consider golf, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, hiking or just about any water sport you can name.
