If you’ve ever visited Kauai, then you most certainly can’t wait to come back.  If this is your first time visiting the Island, then no doubt you are filled with anticipation and excitement.

A Lush Island Paradise

Kauai, aptly nicknamed the Garden Isle, is one of the least populated Hawaiian islands, and is famous for its raw and breathtaking beauty.  Kauai has a variety of climates and stunning geological features ranging from desert to rain forest, a mini-Grand Canyon, waterfall laden cliffs and coastlines and the largest white sand beaches in the state. Visitors to the island worship not only its postcard-perfect beauty, but Kauai’s diversity of cultures, activities, shopping and dining.

The Oldest & Most Scenic Hawaiian Island

The tropical paradise of Kauai basks amidst the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu, Hawaii. Formed over six million years ago, the Island encompasses roughly 550 square miles and is the oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands. To visit Kauai is to quickly lose yourself in the quiet majesty of the Island’s lush tropical setting and extraordinary natural heritage. Come, discover the legendary aloha spirit that abounds in this friendly Garden Island paradise.

Verdant rain forests, impressive golf courses, vibrant scenery, friendly faces, blissful breezes, and striking waterfalls are just a few of Kauai’s spectacular offerings. Exploring Kauai is to unearth secrets more than five million years old, the world’s greatest natural wonders, and an island that proves that, like fine wine, some things get better with age.


Prepare to Unwind & Decompress

Be prepared to unwind and decompress from frenetic city life, the only crowds you’ll experience on Kauai are the throng of locals and visitors at the weekly outdoor farmer’s markets.  Walk along beaches where the ocean marries the coastline in a heavenly match, watch with childlike awe as dolphins and whales swim in their natural habitat, and observe the panoramic beauty of Kauai’s remarkable vistas. December through April each year the Humpback Whales make their migration to our warm Hawaiian waters to mate and give birth. Many coastal areas of Kauai offer ideal vantage points to observe these “gentle giants” as well as dolphins and turtles as they frolic in the ocean.
