Kauai

Hawaii is one of the most isolated, populated, water-locked areas on earth. With approximately 2,200 miles of Pacific between Kaua’i and California and approximately 3,800 miles separating Kauai and Japan, Kauai is about as far away from it all as you can get. Kauai is the northern most of the eight main islands in the Hawaiian chain which includes over more than 130 islands, most of which are uninhabitable. The main island chain includes Kaua’i, Ni’ihau, O’ahu, Moloka’i, Maui, Lana’i, Kaho’olawe, & Hawai’i – from north to south. Our state motto is – Ua mau ke ea o ka aina I ka pono – The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.

Kaua’i is the jewel of the island chain, earning its nick name as the Garden Isle. With breathtaking backdrops such as the Napali coast, Hanalei Bay, Waimea Canyon, and some of the most pristine beaches in the Pacific, it is no wonder Kaua’i is also the backdrop canvas in numerous movies such as Blue Hawai’i, Donovan’s Reef, South Pacific, Jurassic Park, & Pirates of the Caribbean to name a few. Kaua’i is the oldest of the eight major islands being an estimated 5.5 million years old.
