Book Amazing Activities in Kauai
A spot of green in the wide, blue Pacific, Kaua’i fully embodies its ‘Garden Isle’ moniker. Verdant valleys, secluded coasts and soaring peaks – Nature saved her botanical and topographical fireworks for the oldest of Hawaii’s main islands. Formed by an undersea volcano six million years ago, the effects of time and high annual rainfall are evident in a landscape marked by erosion. But unlike its dramatic skyline, time moves slowly on Kaua’i. No superhighways and skyscrapers here – the biggest town has only 10,000 inhabitants and you’ll find more red dirt and taro fields than hustle and bustle. Glimpse Kauai’s plantation past in Old Koloa Town. Stand in awe at the view of Waimea Canyon’s jagged peaks worn by wind and water. Snorkel, swim and sunbathe on the white sands of Po’ipu Beach. Hike the dramatic cliffs, lush valleys, and remote beaches of Kalalau Trail. Fly above, boat along, or hike through the remote Na Pali Coast and have your breath taken by sky-high waterfalls and spontaneous rainbows. Get ready for recreation, relaxation and romance. The Garden Isle is the Eden of the Pacific.
