Kauai

Kauai
Kauai is the fourth largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago. It is a hugely popular tourist attraction, along with the other Hawaiian Islands. It has been determined that the fourth largest island is also the oldest in the chain. The raw beauty of the island is breathtaking to say the very least. Not only will you be greeted with seemingly endless miles of powdery, white-sand beaches, but also phenomenal natural wonders like Waimea Canyon, often referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

Major cities and tourist areas on Kauai include Kapa’a, Lihue, Poipu, Princeville, and Waimea. Kapa’a is the largest city on the island and home to the Coconut Coast.

You can be sure that you will enjoy a tranquil and relaxing vacation if you make Kauai you final destination. This is not to say that there are not plenty of activities to enjoy, on and off of the beach. Unlike the other islands of Hawaii, beaches here are smaller and spread out rather than miles and miles of beaches stretching along the coast. It can help to have a rental car here for that reason.

The top beaches in Kauai include Poipu Beach and Hanalei Bay. Each of these massive beaches offers gear and equipment rentals, restaurants and bars, and a selection of outdoor activities, from horseback riding and parasailing, to jet skiing and surfing. As is the case with most of the beaches in Hawaii, lifeguards patrol the parts of the beach outside the hotel areas, but once you travel beyond these limits, you are on your own.
