  • Na Pali Coast on Kauai
    The Na Pali Coast - Once Seen, Never Forgotten

    One of the most popular attractions, hands down, is the Na Pali Coast on the North. Towering green sea cliffs, deep caves that tunnel deep into the Island plus some of the most beautiful waters to be found anywhere. You'll feel like you're the first to discover it, so untouched is it still today. For most it's best to see the sights of the Na Pali Coast by boat or helicopter. There's also a hiking trail, but it can get very rugged. Best left for experienced hikers & campers. However you see Na Pali, the effect will be the same - pure amazement..

  • Town of Hanapepe
    Hanapepe - One of Kauai's Little Jewels

    One of the great charms of Kauai are the small towns with their distinct architecture & culture. On the western side of the Island is one of the most famous, Hanapep. It's a picturesque town with historic buildings that alone make visiting worthwhile. Need more convincing? Hanapepe was the model for the town in Disney's 'Lilo & Stitch', so you can see an animated jewel come to life.

  • Lydgate State Park
    Lydgate Beach Park - Just One of the Famous 'Coconut Coast' Beaches

    Head to the East side and you'll find yourself on the Coconut Coast. As the name says, this part of Kauai is coverd with coconut groves. It's also home to many of the best beaches on Kauai. One you should especially check out is in Wailua, Lydgate Beach Park, where there are 2 pools surrounded by lava rock walls. This protection has made them perfect for beginning snorkelers and those with little ones who want to swim. A great destination for the entire family.

  • Wailua River
    Wailua River - 20 miles of prime Kauai scenery

    Visitors also love riding up the Wailua River by boat, which takes them to such wonders as the Fern Grotto where lava rock walls dangle huge hanging ferns in a place that's a natural ampitheatre. You'll often be treated to Hawaiian musicians who love the acoustics! You sail by plunging waterfalls and the sites of 7 Ancient Hawaiian Heiaus (temples) on a trip that you'll want to do all over once it's done.
