Kauai

Destination Description

Description of Kauai
The “Garden Island” is considered by many to be the most beautiful of the Hawaiian Islands, because of its lush, tropical rainforest, desolate moonscapes and more than 40 spectacular beaches. Life on Kauai is unhurried from the Na Pali Coast to Waimea Canyon with plenty of unforgettable beaches and stunning waterfalls in-between. Most people have already seen Kauai on the silver screen as the lush, Eden-like backdrop for hundreds of films including Blue Hawaii, South Pacific, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, 6 Days and 7 Nights, Outbreak and Gilligan’s Island. Yet the camera’s lens could never do the island justice. Some of the best golf courses in the Hawaiian Islands are found on Kauai, including the Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course, known from the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, and the Prince Courses at the Princeville Resort.
