Known for its lush tropical rainforests, awe-inspiring mountain ranges and stunning beaches, it is no wonder the Island of Kauai is nicknamed The Garden Isle. Adding to the island's unique charm is the fact that is is relative unspoiled by development, providing visitors pristine vistas such as the Na Pali Coast cliffs, Mount Waiʻaleʻale, and many other natural scenic wonders.
Its untouched beauty is the very reason why Kauai is the vacation spot of choice among many famous personalities including Hollywood celebrities and business moguls, some of whom have even built their own vacation homes there.
