The Island of Kauai

The Garden Isle

Kauai has been given the nickname, “The Garden Isle,” and it’s no wonder. Kauai has some of the most beautiful natural sites in the world. The island is home to the wettest place on earth, Mount Waiʻaleʻale, which gets an average of over 450 inches of rain every year. With all the rain that comes here, it keeps the landscape of tropical rain forests dotted with verdant ferns and cascading waterfalls lush year round.

Since development and tourism is concentrated to a few areas, the natural beauty of Kauai has largely been undisturbed. Because of this, Hollywood has used the island as an exotic backdrop in many films over the years, especially the towering cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. Kauai is also home to some of the most pristine beaches in the world, like Hanalei Bay, Poʻipu, and Hanapepe. This island has so much rural charm that visitors will find that the island has been taken over by wild roosters! Find the hidden gems on Kauai.
