Kauai’s nickname is “The Garden Island,” and for good reason.  Its scale and density of natural wonders is unsurpassed in Hawaii.  Its main highway comes close, but does not make a complete loop around the island.  Because of this, it’s important that you carefully select where you’ll stay and group attractions together so you don’t spend your vacation re-driving the same roads.   Get a great video tour of the island, facts and a travel planning map in our Hawaiian Islands map.  You’ll get all the other islands in the app as a for free.
