    Favorite thing: We will be leaving tomorrow for our 12th trip to kauai.We always stay on the north shore as it so peaceful and uncrowded.We stay at either Alii Kai or
    sea lodge.Tunnels beach and Kee beach are both great.Kee beach is excellent for kids.We usually go in may the showers are usually short lived many times occouring in the evening time.
    We usually Go to Princeville hotel for sunday breakfast.We go down to poipu and the canyon and drive many places on the island including koloa town
    We enjoy Gaylords for a meal WE cant wait to return each time.

    Go To Kauai

    Favorite thing: Kauai is by far my favorite of the Hawaiian Islands. The landscape is so luch and verdant and diverse. If you're into the outdoors there is plenty of hiking, kayaking and SCUBA diving. My favorite hike is up Wiamea Canyon to the Wettest Spot on Earth. The views up there are amazing. And, although tourists are always crawling all over the Islands, here you can find a little peace if you look in the right spot.

    Favorite thing: Kauai is the oldest island of the hawaiian archipel. This is the perfect island for hikkers and people who like the nature.

    Did you know that the wettest point on earth is in Kauai?

    Visit the Waimea Canyon (Gran Canyon of the Pacific) or go hiking on the Na'pali Coast

    on the east coast of Kauai you can find beautiful watherfalls

    Mark Twain called this "Little Grand Canyon"

    Favorite thing: Mark Twain was here and he calls this desert area of Kauai "Little Grand Canyon".

    Fondest memory: Well, the fondest memory was landing and finding out that Harrison Ford just flew in the day before to film "6 days/7 night".

    Favorite thing: Waimea Canyon - predictably dubbed the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific' - is smaller and a mere 200 million years younger than its Arizona cousin, but otherwise not at all dissimilar. The canyon's colorful river-cut gorge is 2785 ft (835m) deep and it seems incredible that such an immense canyon could be tucked away in such a small island.
