Kauai

a lovely mountainous, lush green island floating in the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific....

Known as the Garden Island, Kauai is one of the wettest spots on earth with rainfall up to 460 inches per year.  It boasts 90 miles of the most beautiful coastline.

  21. So cool! I'm not pretty annoyed we're not getting there on this trip. It's only about 30 miles from Oahu and plane tickets are $74 round trip, so I'm hoping to go for a weekend some time!
