Kauai The Garden Island

Kauai Vacation at “The Garden Island”

KAUAI … is known as the “garden island” because it has the wettest climate and is the most lush of all of the Hawaiian islands. It is the oldest island so over eons of time the wind and rain have sculpted the landscape into some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. From the pinnacles of the Na Pali Coast to the deeply carved valleys of Waimea Canyon, the island will blow you away with its beauty. For these reason alone, provides you the excuse to come, explore the island and stay at our Kauai Vacation Rental.

Don’t Miss This

Helicopter tours are very popular here, as there is no other way to see the remote, rugged interior and the isolated coastlines. The summit of Mt. Waialeale is the wettest spot on the face of the earth, averaging 480 inches of rain a year. All that water carves its way down the cliffs forming countless waterfalls of every size and shape imaginable. A helicopter tour of this island is our highest recommendation; we just can’t imagine spending thousands of dollars to come to Kauai on vacation and not spending the extra $250 or so to see this magnificent place from the air.

Eventually all that water finds its way to the lowland streams. The Wailua River is the only navigable waterway in the Hawaiian islands; another of our favorite tours takes you by kayak up the river with a hike to a secluded secret waterfall.

Most Unique Adventure

Mountain Tubing through the ditches and tunnels that were carved over 100 years ago to channel water from the rain forest to the thirsty sugar cane plantations that once thrived here. This tour is extremely popular (especially in the summertime) and is often sold out more than a week in advance!

Another must-do event is to experience the rugged cliffs, sea caves, waterfalls, and towering spires of the Na Pali Coast. We offer a wide range of tours to this wilderness … ocean rafting, sea kayaking, sailing catamaran, sunset cruises … and of course helicopter tours fly over this area as well.

Kauai also has a variety of great zipline tours, ATV adventures, horseback riding, luaus … you really can do it all on this amazing island!

Each of these adventures can be easily reached from our Kauai Vacation Rental at Poipu Beach in the most Southern part of the Island.
