Garden Isle Travel Guide
Kauai is an island full of splendor, raw beauty, and culture; an island that represents the true spirit of aloha like no other. A trip to Kauai is truly like a journey back in time to the beginning of the main Hawaiian chain. Here you'll find legends and lore, cliffs and coral reefs, and some of the most enchanting lands you'll ever visit. Kauai is dubbed the "Garden Isle" and no nickname could be more befitting. It is by far the "greenest" of the islands and the most lush in all of Hawaii. This jungle-like island paradise can attribute its climate to the trade winds that blow over the land, thereby allowing the ancient volcanic peaks to catch rain from the sky and pull it down to the earth below.
Looking for the best beach, an even better hike, and the coziest bed and breakfast you've ever seen? Then look no further. Plus, you'll want to check out our selection of handpicked tours and adventures; whether you're an extreme adventurer or an "extreme" golf enthusiast, we have the perfect Kauai getaway for you. Plan, book, and go with Hawaii Guide.
