The first thing that hits you about Kauai is her natural beauty. Covered by tropical rainforest and dramatic sea cliffs called the Na Pali Coastline. Kauai is also home to the Waimea Canyon, referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, 14 miles long, 1 mile wide and 3,600 feet deep. Mt. Waialeale, the wettest spot in the United States with an annual rainfall of 452 inches, keeps the reservoirs, rivers full and the Island a luscious green. Welcome to the Garden Island of Kauai, the oldest and most tropical of the Hawaiian Islands.
