About Kauai

Visiting the island of Kauai is like a journey back in time, right back to the beginning of the main Hawaiian chain. Kauai is an island full of amazing splendor, raw beauty and is Hawaii’s fourth largest island and is sometimes called the “Garden Isle”. 

The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs, aged by time and the natural elements. Anchoring the western part of the major Hawaiian islands, circular-shaped Kauai is the fourth largest in the state, with 552 square miles and 90 miles of coastline.

Centuries of growth have formed tropical rain forests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls. Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination. The dramatic cliffs and pinnacles of its Na Pali Coast have served as backdrop for major Hollywood films, while 10-mile-long Waimea Canyon and the Nounou trails traversing the Sleeping Giant ridge are hiking destinations.
