Kauai: Hawaii’s Garden Island

By Anita Draycott


Kauai, the oldest and lushest of the Hawaiian islands, is appropriately called the Garden Island. The north gets more rain than the south, but usually just a shower ending with a glorious rainbow. The locals have a saying, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” 


*Take a helicopter ride over the dramatic 3,000-foot Na Pali cliffs dominating the northwest coast and the central Waimea Canyon, dubbed by Mark Twain as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”
*Sail up the Na Pali coast with stops for dolphin watching and snorkelling
*Over 60 movies have been filmed in Kaua‘i, including Blue Hawaii and Jurassic Park. Take the Movie Tour to many of the film set locations.
*Drive the north coast from Hanalei to Ke’e beach, literally at the end of the road. You’ll go over a series of quaint wooden bridges, forge a mountain stream, pass a wet and a dry cave and many secluded beaches. Bring a picnic and watch the sunset.
