Kauai has a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere that you won’t find anywhere else. It is an ideal place for a romantic honeymoon vacation or just an intimate getaway that you will never forget. Most people who visit Kauai love it so much that they return again and again.
STUNNING NATURAL BEAUTY
When Hollywood filmmakers are looking for pristine tropical paradise, they come to Kauai. South Pacific, Jurassic Park, Six Days Seven Nights, Fantasy Island and Blue Hawaii are just some of the movies filmed on the island.
You will never see any high-rises here – no building on Kauai may be higher than a coconut palm. Instead, you will be surrounded by waterfalls, bright exotic flowers, and sleepy old mill towns.
On the North Shore, soaring 2,000-foot cliffs of Na Pali Coast separate tropical rainforests from hidden white-sand beaches. More picture-perfect sund-drenched beaches can be found on the South Shore (Poipu). Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” is a huge gorge with most dense rainforest and rocks that change color during the day.
Kauai is the best island for those who want to venture into the outdoors. You can glide through a grand canyon in a helicopter, kayak along Na Pali Coast, angle for rainbow trout, and hike along breathtakingly high sea cliffs on the North Shore.
Mountain biking on Kauai is exhilarating, particularly along the roads of Koke’e State Park. Horseback riding is a great way to tour Kauai’s ranchlands, sugar cane fields, rain forests and secluded beaches.
There are 43 sparkling white sand beaches on Kauai. South Shore (Poipu area) has the best swimming beaches. East Shore has some great snorkeling spots, like Lydgate Park with its clear, calm waters. The truth is you can’t go more than a few miles on Kauai without running into a great beach.
SCENIC GOLF COURSES
A magnificent natural setting for golf, Kauai is home to 4 of the state’s top-ranked courses, including the Prince Course, which has been rated the second most difficult course in Hawaii.
