Kauai holidays

The ‘Garden Isle’ of Kauai holds itself gently aloof from the rest of the Hawaiian islands – it can only be seen from its private neighbour, Niihau. The oldest of Hawaii’s main islands, Kauai has been shaped by millions of years of erosion and boasts dramatic scenery and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. A good road circles most of the island but leaves the Nā Pali Coast gloriously untouched. This striking lush landscape was the backdrop for films including Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Arc.

  • The oldest of Hawaii’s main islands, Kauai has been shaped by millions of years of erosion and has dramatic scenery and miles of beautiful sandy beaches
  • A good road circles most of the island, but leaves the northern Nā Pali Coast beautifully untouched
  • If you have the time we recommend staying on the island for at least a week, perhaps combining with time spent on another island or two
  • The island’s beauty can also be witnessed at Waimea Canyon, where the island was almost split in two by an earthquake
  • This is the perfect destination if you're looking to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, with hiking trails, zipline adventures, horse riding and off-road tours
