Kaua‘i is known as the "Garden Island" and geologically, it is the oldest of Hawai‘i's major islands. The town of Waimea was the site of the first Hawai‘i landing by Captain James Cook in 1778. Kauai’s weather is moderate year around with average temperatures ranging from70° to 81°F.
The summit of Wai‘ale‘ale is among the wettest spots in the world with an average rainfall of 444 inches per year.
Kauai is the most pristine and secluded of the major Hawaiian Islands where the feeling and pace of old Hawaii still lives. Abundant in sandy beaches and where no building is allowed higher than a coco palm, Kauai offers a unique new adventure and a relaxing respite from the bustle found elsewhere. (Source: kauai.com)
