Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands and is one of the most picturesque and remote islands in the world.


The east side of the island, nicknamed Coconut Coast because of the groves of coconut trees that grow there, offers some of the most beautiful beaches on the Pacific. Kialia Beach is set between two lava rock pools and is a perfect destination for snorkelling, whilst Donkey Beach, one of the quieter beaches is perfect for honeymooners and has been likened to having your own private island.

There are also various sailing adventures on offer, so whether you’re wanting to go whale watching, snorkelling, or just want to explore the coast whilst listening to live Hawaiian music and enjoying the Pacific sunshine, you won’t be disappointed!

There’s also some famous landmarks that shouldn’t be missed too. Waimea Canyon, nicknamed ‘The Grand Canyon of the Pacific’ by Mark Twain, is the perfect spot for hiking as it offers magnificent views of the Napali Coast. If you are not one for hiking, there is also the option to drive up the canyon, either way it’s definitely one to tick off the bucket list. If you’re daring enough, you can walk the Hanapepe Swinging Bridge. Built in the early 1900’s it really does swing as you cross it. On the South Shore, you can watch Spouting Horn spout a plume of sea water in to the air. Then there’s the various waterfalls, caves and grottos to explore where you can discover the secrets of the ‘Garden Island’.

This is an island brimming with natural beauty, and from golf trips in Princeville for the sports lover to Hula shows at the Smith Family Garden Lau, this really is the perfect destination.
