Kauai VacationsThe Garden Island On the peaceful, lush, and naturally spectacular island of Kauai with its endless shades of green and blue, you're sure to be rejuvenated and re-discover your primal connection with nature. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls on the 'Garden Isle.' The Napali Coast, Waimea Canyon, and Fern Grotto are spectacular geological wonders. The island's laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns make it truly timeless.
(East Side) Coconut Coast - Kauai's East Side is sometimes referred to as the Coconut Coast. Amongst the clusters of coconut trees, you'll find historical places, amazing beaches, and memorable attractions.
In Wailua, enjoy a variety of sightseeing opportunities and outdoor activities. Kayak the Wailua River in Wailua River State Park, take a boat ride to the Fern Grotto or take photos at Opaekaa Falls. And be sure to visit Kapaa Town to discover fine Hawaiian craft pieces, aloha-print shirts, jewelry, and art.
Lihue is the government and commercial center of the island as well as a cultural and historical area. It's the home of Kauai's main airport (the Lihue Airport) and Nawiliwili Harbor, the island's major commercial shipping center and cruise ship port.
Po'ipu Beach -Numerous beaches, oceanfront resorts, quaint village area, upscale shopping district, and the wonders of nature are some of the rewards you'll enjoy on Po'ipu's stretch of sunshine. Additionally, the scenic coastlines, walking trails, waterfalls, and picture-perfect golden-sand beaches make it a perfect spot to stay. Kayaking, golfing, and snorkeling are among some activities all ages can enjoy. Other fun activities such as surfing, scuba, windsurfing, or just sunbathing are ideal at any of the sun-soaked beaches. Po'ipu's beaches are also a hot spot for the endangered Hawaiian monk seals to relax.
(West Side) Princeville - Kauai's magnificent North Shore provides the perfect setting for Princeville. Situated among the lush, green sea cliffs that tower over the picturesque Hanalei Bay, Princeville is an exquisitely designed ocean-view resort community known as 'Magnificent By Nature.' Just minutes from the world-famous Napali Coast, Kauai's West Side is defined by nature and scenery on a grand scale. From the laidback town of Waimea to the enormous drama of Waimea Canyon, this stretch of shore, road, and parkland includes some of the island's most memorable sights and stunning panoramas.
