Explore emerald mountains and golden beaches on this tropical island paradise.
Kauai, the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands, is 90% inaccessible by car. As a result, it is a nature lover’s dream, where you have a simple choice to make: adventure or relaxation? Thanks to local laws that prohibit buildings from being taller than a coconut tree, Kauai has the look of a largely untouched tropical landscape — a dreamy backdrop for pursuits like hiking, swimming, surfing, kayaking and simply unplugging.
