Kaua'i - "The Garden Isle" & "Hawaii's Island of Discovery"
OAHU / MAUI / HAWAII / LANAI / MOLOKAI
Captain’s Cook Landing, Waimea Bay - The first place in which the intrepid
British Explorer set foot in Hawaii in January, 1778. This was for many years a favorite
provisioning port with Pacific traders and whalers.
Fern Grotto - The hauntingly beautiful cave, luxuriantly festooned
with growing ferns, is reach from the Wailua Marina.
Hanalei Valley - You will want to stop at the vantage point near the marker to gaze at this
sweeping scene of majestic tranquility.
Hanapepe Valley - Note the red cliffs and the handsome color accent they give the valley’s
myriad shades of green and blue.
Kalalau Lookout - Once peacocks preened their plumage in this tropic Eden and families
cultivate terraces of taro. No one lives here now ….. Nothing remains but one of the most
beautiful views on earth.
Kauai Museum - The museum in Lihue presents a factual history of Kauai, using artifacts
and photographs. Other historical and art exhibits are also displayed.
Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge - A refuge for nesting seabirds, the isolated
promontory where the lighthouse sits is open for visitors.
Lumahai Beach - Chosen for Nurse’s Beach in “South Pacific,”
this lovely spot is undoubtedly the most photograph beach on Kauai.
Opaekaa Falls - The Wailua River makes a dramatic plunged over a high cliff. Opaekaa
means “rolling shrimp” and dates from days when swarms of shrimps were seen rolling
in turbulent waters at the base of the falls.
Poipu Beach - Exceptionally fine bathing beach. Great for snorkeling.
Sleeping Giant - The outline of a mountain ridge shows a striking resemblance
to a reclining giant.
Smiths Tropical Paradise - This 23 acre site has gardens, lagoons, exotic birds and
a unique narrated train ride which meanders through a rain forest, a Polynesian village,
a Japanese Island, a Filipino village and other interesting areas. Kauai’s ethnic heritage
is reflected nightly in a 75 minute musical production in the lagoon.
Spouting Horn - When tide is running high, waves pressured through
lava tubes are forced through a hole in coastal rocks to burst noisily into
spectacular fountains of salt and foam spray.
Waimea Canyon - This is more than a view, its an experience!
You will treasure in memory its grandeur and jewel-tone colors,
its awesome depth and breadth.
