Kauai is known as the Garden Island and is the least developed of the eight islands that make up Hawaii. Come to enjoy unspoilt nature and breathe the clean, unpolluted air. Kayak to the waterfall on Wailua River, go snorkelling at Ke’e Beach or Haena Beach Park to discover new underwater worlds, or hike the rainforest on Kalalau Trail. If you are looking for adventure, take to the sky at one of several zipline adventure parks, book a scenic flight over the island, or surf the big waves at Poipu Beach or Hanalei Bay. Spectacular canyons and waterfalls will get you in the right holiday mood in no time, and there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained from sunrise till sunset on Kauai.
Places to stay
Looking for places to stay on your Kauai holiday? How about a beach resort or boutique hotel? The largest concentration of Kauai accommodation can be found on the Royal Coconut Coast, on the eastern side of the island. Many inexpensive resorts can be found here. Poipu in the south is nicknamed ‘the sunny side of paradise,’ and is equally popular with tourists. Plenty of apartments to rent exist in Princeville on the northern shore.
Getting there and around
Most visitors to Kauai arrive at Lihue Airport (LIH). You can also fly to Honolulu International Airport (HNL) first, then on to Kauai. The best way to discover the island is with a rental car. While there are shuttle buses to many hotels in Kauai, it is difficult to get to the attractions of the island without a car.
