Kauai is the perfect place for your next vacation. 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 elements.
Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls. Some parts of Kauaʻi are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination. More than just dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. You can kayak the Wailua River, snorkel on Poʻipū Beach, hike the trails of Kōkeʻe State Park, or go ziplining above Kauaʻi’s lush valleys. But, it is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns that make it truly timeless.
Kauai is a must-visit destination for anyone looking to explore the Hawaiian islands. From its dramatic landscapes, amazing sunsets and natural beauty to its many outdoor activities, Kauaʻi will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed after your stay.
Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands and, as such, has a rich cultural heritage. Visitors can explore this history in the island’s small towns, which are dotted with churches, museums and historic buildings. The town of Lihue is Kauaʻi’s commercial hub and home to many attractions including Dole Plantation. This working plantation provides visitors with an opportunity to learn about how pineapples were once grown on the island and try their hand at harvesting some fresh fruit.
