Some Call it Kauai,
We Call It Paradise!
Kauai has majestic emerald green mountains and lush tropical landscapes with magnificent waterfalls. This is Hawaii; This is paradise.
Plan Your Trip to Kauai
Nicknamed “The Garden Island” for it’s lush green tropical landscape and jagged mountains, this beautiful island has hosted many Hollywood studios who have used the picturesque landscape of Kauai for the backdrop of their films. It is one of the least commercially developed islands in Hawaii with dramatically different landscapes from rainforests, deserts, mountains and beaches. The vibe here is more laid back than some of the other islands. If you want to find a secluded beach and be alone, you have many to choose from here. However, you will most likely need a map to find them as they really are "hidden."
The sunny South Shore of the island is home to world famous Poipu Beach and historic Koloa Town. Whether you explore the Koloa Heritage Trail to learn more about Kauai’s history or spend the day at Poipu Beach Park, there’s something for everyone on the South Shore.
Coconut Coast-(East Side)
The eastern section of the island, sometimes referred to as the Coconut Coast for the groves of coconut palm trees, has some amazing beaches and exciting attractions. Kayak the Wailua River, take a boat ride up the Fern Grotto, or visit on of the beautiful waterfalls.
When To Visit
September through November or April through June seem to be the best times to visit Kauai. The weather is pleasant and airfare and hotel rates are not as costly. December to March is the rainy season but also a good time for those looking for a winter getaway. Another option is the spring months. Kauai sees a slight dip in prices after the peak season concludes and before families take summer vacations.
Many airlines now offer non-stop service to Kauai's main airport in Lihue (LIH). You may also choose to fly into Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu first and then heading to Kauai. There is limited bus service, but if you’re planning to really explore the island, it’s best to rent a car and control your own schedule.
