|Ruggedly awesome Na Pali coast of Kauai|
Lush foliage in thick native forests and a proliferation of rainbow-hued blossoms surrounding streets and gardens are hallmarks of Kauai. No wonder this tropical paradise is called the Garden Isle of Hawaii. But it’s also called the Island of Discovery, an apt moniker because its geographic diversity provides options to discover landscapes as varied as sparkling beaches, mountains and valleys, forests and rivers, and soaring cliffs along the jagged coastline.
|Kauai's Waimea Canyon is called the "Grand Canyon of Hawaii"|
Visitors, whether first-time or repeat, continue to discover fascinating and free, or inexpensive, ways to appreciate Kauai. Enjoy these photos of my favorite Hawaiian island.
