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.
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 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.
Favorite thing: This is a view from the helicopter of the mountains and coastline. I just loved to see this natural beauty.
See Waimea Canyon! We call it the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and it is truly an amazing site
Fondest memory: We love the quiet and few tourists on Kauai.
