Blessed with spectacular natural beauty at every turn, Kauai is a must-visit Hawaiian island!

The oldest of the large Hawaiian islands, Kauai is the fourth largest in size, with a land area of about 560 square miles. It is less developed than Maui or the Honolulu area of Oahu, with a more island-like laid-back vibe. Over half the island can only be seen from the air, which makes a Kauai helicopter tour a bucket-list item for many visitors.

With golden-sand beaches that wrap around the island, numerous waterfalls, the renowned cliffs of the Na Pali Coast, and the Waimea Canyon, nicknamed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Kauai offers a lot to see and do.
