Introducing Kauai

Kauai’s moniker of ‘The Garden Island’ is something of an understatement. Colored with more than 1001 shades of green, where dense arboreal canopies from bridges over dirt track roads and serrated mountains plummet down to castaway beaches, Kauai is nature, hard core. With its ethereal beauty and virgin landscape, it’s hard to believe that Kauai is so well established on the tourist radar. The oldest of Hawaii’s islands (that would be more than five million years old) is a dramatic topographical juxtaposition of parched southern desertscapes and lush emerald forests. From zip lining to kayaking along the Wailua River, snorkeling the pristine waters of Kee Beach, or marveling at the deep fissures, chasmic gorges, and crested buttes of Waimea Canyon, there is no end of opportunity to commune with the mystical, timeless Hawaiian landscape. Kauai ripples with ancient rites and rituals, it’s a place where modernity is eschewed—legally speaking building limits are 55 feet—in the name of achieving inner peace and personal equilibrium.
