Relaxing and pristine island of Kauai (the Garden Island) is located about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu, where commercial development has not overwhelmed the island, leaving beautiful waterfalls, scenic drives and around 60 beaches dominate the landscape. In Kauai travelers can enjoy a variety of nature activities, including snorkelling, child-friendly tidal pools, hiking the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali coastline, taking a day trip to Waimea Canyon or visiting a sugar plantation at Grove Farm Homestead Museum
