Endless Shades of Green

Welcome to Kaua`i

“Rejuvenating” is a word often used to describe Kaua‘i and its immersive natural beauty. The raw energy of the soaring cliffs along the emerald Nāpali Coast. The expansive vistas of the Waimea Canyon. And the soothing ripples of the Wailua River winding through the forest. The northernmost and greenest of the Hawaiian Islands is a place to put down your phone and forget about your worries. Breathe deep. Unwind. And rediscover a special connection to nature on this beautiful, tropical island.”

Heritage Sites

Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse: On a rocky peninsula, the 52-foot lighthouse was commissioned in 1913 and was dedicated to U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye in 2013. The point is also a national wildlife refuge for seabirds.

Waimea Canyon State Park: Nicknamed the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, the 10-mile-wide by 3,000-feet-deep Waimea Canyon on Kaua`i’s west side was carved by the Waimea River, which receives its water from Mount Waialeale.


Take a farm tour in the beautiful, green Hanalei taro fields to see how kalo (taro), an important Hawaiian root starch, is cultivated. The South Shore of Kaua`i is also home to Kaua`i Coffee , a working coffee plantation. Some of Hawaii’s largest botanical gardens can also be found on Kaua`i; the National Tropical Botanical Garden has three sites here: Allerton Garden and McBryde Garden just west of Koloa, and Limahuli Garden on the North Shore. You can also opt for a whale-watching tour (December–May), or spot some of the 1,200 endangered Hawaiian monk seals swimming in Kaua`i’s waters on Poipu Beach.


Enjoy a delightful mix of daily fee (Kukuiolono, Kiahuna, Puakea, and Wailua) and resort courses. Three main areas define Kauai golf: Princeville Makai Golf Club on the majestic North Shore; Ocean Course at Hokuala in Lihue – with more oceanfront holes than any other course in Hawaii; and Poipu Bay Golf Course on the on the South Shore, where Phil Mickelson holds the course record (59).
