Kauai, the Garden Isle
The fourth largest island is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and rugged cliffs aged by time and the elements. It is the greenest of all the Hawaiian Islands; 97% of it is covered by forests or mountain ranges. It’s a perfect spot for the adventurer who likes kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking. While there, make sure you head to Hanalei, perhaps the most picturesque town in Kauai. Here you will find waterfalls and jungle-covered mountains. Don’t forget to head to Waimea, where Captain James Cook made his first landing in Hawaii in 1778. Explore Waimea Canyon with its panoramic views and deep valley gorges. Some would say you only need a good pair of hiking boots, an umbrella, and an adventurous spirit to visit Kauai. With brilliant sunsets, pristine beaches, and luminous skies, what more would you want in a vacation?
