Romance on Kauai
If you’re not in love when you come to Kauai, you will be when you leave. Kauai is Cupid’s playground, tailor-made for romance. Kauai’s allure as a romantic destination is proven time and again, not just by Hollywood filmmakers, but also by the couples who return year after year, often with children and grandchildren in tow.

Adventure on Kauai
Why is Kauai such a favorite of filmmakers? They love beauty and adventure, and Kauai is brimming with both. Kauai is the only island in Hawaii with navigable rivers, and waterways mean adventure.

One of the most satisfying ways to visit the Garden Isle is to do so in harmony with the principles of old Hawaii: respecting the land, caring for the land, and giving back to the land and the local people. There is any number of opportunities for this kind of ecotourism—traveling as guests who ensure that their visit protects the very beauty they’ve come to experience.
