More About Kauai

When you think of Hawai’i, you probably think of palm trees and cocktails with umbrellas. What you don’t know is that Hawaii is so much more than that. Every island is unique, and Kaua’i is the most beautiful of this magical island chain. For one thing, we have no high-rises, no freeways, and no parking problems. The Lihue airport is centrally-located and within a short distance to anywhere you wish to visit. When you get here, look for The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, available at Walmart and a few other stores. Make sure you get the most recent edition, as it’s updated every year. We know you’ll have the time of your life, but please follow safety warnings detailed in the book.

Kauai is truly paradise, a combination of gorgeous beaches, mountains, jungles, and even the only navigable rivers in the state. It’s lush, and for a good reason. Mount Waialeale, at the heart of the island, is the wettest spot on earth (420 inches of rain a year). It rains almost every day, briefly, which breaks the heat and keeps the island green. Sometimes the rain lasts a few days, in which case you’d be advised to visit the West Side, which is a desert. There are no snakes, so don’t worry about hiking in the jungles. The most spectacular trail is Kalalau. It takes at least two days and it requires a permit from the State Building on Rice Street in Lihue. Other popular trails, less strenuous, are Sleeping Giant, off Kuamoo Road in Wailua and Kuilau Trail, further on Kuamoo toward the mountains.
