Kauai (Nawiliwili), Hawaii
The fourth largest and oldest island in the Hawaiian group, Kauai is known as the "Garden Isle" simply due to its incredible lushness. Kauai's terrain ranges from the volcanic slopes of Mt. Waialeale and the desert-like beauty of Waimea Canyon to the Wailua River's lush Fern Grotto.
Explore Kauai from its lush green valleys, cascading waterfalls and geological wonders, such as the dramatic Nã Pali Coastline. The natural beauty doesn't stop at the shoreline, the Garden Isle's white-sand beaches and aquamarine waters are showstoppers as well.
Mark Twain described this geological wonder as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific."
A natural amphitheater covered with lush tropical growth, it's a stunning venue for weddings, often performed here in the grotto.
Ancient Hawaiians believed that this vocal blowhole was the angry roar of the lizard goddess Kaikapu.
