The Garden Isle
The Island of Kauai is the fourth largest and most northern of the main Hawaiian Islands. Also known as the Garden Isle, Kauai features a range of world class activities and visitor attractions second to none. The island’s lush tropical setting features beautiful rainforests, breathtaking ocean-side cliffs, and sparkling sand beaches. Kauai boasts a range of outdoor and water related activities, fabulous dining, shopping, and sightseeing.
First time visitors to the island will find countless backdrops for the perfect postcard worthy photo. One of the major sightseeing activities on Kauai is a west side journey to the Island’s 3,500 foot deep Waimea Canyon. The Canyon’s beauty and size is awe-inspiring, including the waterfalls visible in the distance. Another highly recommended activity is a trip up the Wailua River. The historic waterway, which is Hawaii’s only navigable river, leads to Fern Grotto, one of Kauai’s signature attractions. Fern Grotto is only accessible by boat and provides sightseers an up-close view of the fern-lined cave and nearby waterfall.
and Legendary Spots
Exquisite beaches, the glorious Hanalei Valley Lookout, mysterious caves, the treacherous cliffs of Na Pa… The list of dramatic natural wonders goes on. The North Shore of Kauai offers some of the most spectacular scenery to be found on the Islands.
Immortalized in numerous films, television programs, and the song “Puff, The Magic Dragon”, this region’s loveliness is universally celebrated.

The natural beauty of Kauai creates the perfect romantic backdrop for your visit.
