Kauai - The Untouched Country
Find Out What You Must Know for Your Kauai Vacation!
You wouldn't know it from looking at her, but Kauai is the oldest major Island in the chain. It's a place where the greenery grows freely, like a master painter using the land as canvas. The people of this Isle have worked to conserve and protect the pastoral country, keeping out development. Take a look around and you know you're not on Oahu or Maui. You're on an Island that has held onto a slower way of life. Kauai is Country, local style.
Emerald Green Everywhere You Look
There's good reason why Kauai is called the Garden Isle. The greenery here is a true Garden of Eden that must be seen to be believed.
When Hollywood wants a backdrop that says 'untouched paradise' they come to Kauai. Avatar, Jurassic Park, South Pacific and even a couple of Elvis movies had their scenery provided simply by what exists here naturally. Best of all, that beauty is still here for you to enjoy today. What are you waiting for?
Waimea Canyon - The Grand Canyon of the Pacific
This geological wonder is a one-off, even in Hawaii! It's contrasting red and green shadings are a feast for the eyes, changing before your very eyes.
The sun's shifting and other factors alter the coloring from one hue to another, sometimes in quick succession. You can hike numerous trails that feature lookouts along the way to give you different views of this wondrous creation.
Low-Rise & Low-Worries
Imagine this - an Island where buildings cannot be higher than the tallest coconut tree. That's the law of the land in Kauai. While Oahu and, to a lesser degree, Maui have seen concrete and high-rises spread, Kauai has acted to remain low profile.
This is the destination for those who truly want the tropical experience with peace and quiet built-in. Kauai is a place to unplug from the world for a while, slow down and, for once, just enjoy the scenery.
