Nawiliwili, Kauai, Hawaii
On the approach to the Garden Isle, the jaggedness of the Na Pali cliffs introduces Kauai's unique enchantments. Nawiliwili port is the launching point for the stunning Coconut Coast, where popular Poipu beach is a brilliant kaleidoscope of sand, sea, and sunny faces. Inland, taro fields stretch toward the horizon, waterfalls laugh against the rocks, and fern grottos present a full spectrum of greens. The world's wettest spot lies near Waimea, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Exploring these regions by foot, bike, helicopter, or 4x4 puts the grandeur of Kauai on full display.
