10 Reasons Why Kauai is A Best Kept Secret Destination

They say the best things in life are free. That’s not always true. But here’s a related proverb that is: the best things in life often get the least publicity. Take Kauai for instance. Kauai is the best of all the Hawaiian Islands. That’s not just our opinion, it’s the verdict of Forbes magazine, which did an article on the topic in 2011. While any trip to Hawaii is sure to be spectacular, Kauai stands apart as the premier jewel in the tropical crown. And the fame is growing. That’s because Kauai offers everything you love about the islands along with its own one-of-a-kind charms. Here are some compelling reasons to make this island paradise an essential part of your visit:

10 reasons to see Kauai

  1. Elbow Room – One drawback to most vacation spots is their popularity. If you’ve ever visited Orlando, Florida in the summer, then you know what we’re talking about. Sometimes the crowds are so thick it’s all you can do to breathe. Not so with Kauai. It’s the same size as Oahu, an island with a population in excess of 1 million. Kauai, on the other hand, is home to 70,000. Yet it offers all the amenities you would expect from a premier destination, including a rich array of shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. And, because Kauai is less crowded than other islands, you’ll actually have room to enjoy yourself.
  2. Best of Both Worlds – Kauai is the perfect destination for all kinds of travelers. If you have a family, there are plenty of kid-friendly activities and beaches. Looking for a romantic spot to dine or watch the sunset? There is no better place than our tropical beaches and flavorful island cuisine. You can enjoy sightseeing and exploring towns or the wilderness, or lounge on the beach. To put it simply, Kauai is a great place to customize your vacation.
  3. Natural Beauty – When planning a vacation, one of the hard choices families must make is whether to go to the mountains or to the beach. After all, it’s hard to find both options close to each other, especially in the lower 48 states. You won’t have that problem when you choose Kauai for your next trip. The tranquil beauty of the Pacific Ocean is mere feet from your door. Yet you can also explore some of the most majestic peaks found anywhere on earth, many of which are within a stone’s throw of Waipouli Beach Resort.If you love nothing more than mile after mile of crystal seas and white sand, then Kauai is the place for you. From Hanalei Bay in the North to Poipu beach in the South, you’ll find plenty of places to dip your toes in the water, swim in the ocean, or just kick back and watch the waves crash against the shore. Then can take a drive and see beautiful mountains and beaches. Want more? We’ve got it. Kauai also offers spectacular canyons, mystery-shrouded rivers, natural swimming pools, and public parks galore. Where else can you find such an amazing array of outdoor adventure?

  5. Adventurer’s Paradise – You can opt for an adventurous day surfing, sailing or snorkeling, or the more sedate thrill of paddling a boat along an exotic, winding river, you’ll find plenty to do on Kauai. You can set out on your own or rely on the trusted expertise of local guides and book an adventure tour where you use an off-road vehicle to find waterfalls or float down mountains in an inner tube. This is the perfect destination to try new and exciting activities!
  6. Great food – An essential part of any successful getaway. And the key to delicious flavor is freshness, as any seafood lover knows well. This is just one more reason to visit Kauai, also known as the “Garden Isle.” Our farmers grow pineapples, bananas, mangos, papayas, sugarcane, guava, avocado, and many other fruits and vegetables. Kauai is also home to thriving coffee plantations with some of the best brew you’ll taste anywhere.
  7. Vibrant Culture –There’s no sense in traveling to Hawaii unless you spend some time learning about the local people and their rich culture. That can be hard to do on the other islands, many of which offer the same prepackaged, mass-produced experience to every visitor. Kauai is different. It’s authentic. It’s important to learn to respect the land on Kauai as many of the islanders have never left the island before and sharing it with tourists can be hard, but it’s easy to share when the tourists are eager to learn about the rich Kauai culture.
  8. Hollywood History –While the general public is just now learning bout Kauai, discerning people have known about its delights for quite some time. Hollywood buffs take note: numerous classics were filmed entirely or partially on Kauai. That’s why film producers have chosen the isle to film movies like Blue Hawaii, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, South Pacific, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Fans of the long-running CBS show MASH will be interested to know that the opening scene, where helicopters are descending in front of a mountain range, was also filmed on Kauai.
