Kauai Travel Guide
Kauai is a Hawaiian Island in the Pacific Ocean. Lush tropical rainforest covers much of the Island’s surface, which is why people call it the Garden Isle. When we visited Kauai, we were blown away by the plant life, the scenic diversity, and the delicious food. It’s the perfect destination to unwind, slow down, and uncover the beauty that is Kauai. It might take you a day or two to adjust to the maximum speed limit of 50 MPH, but you’ll grow to love it.
Unlike the other Hawaiian Islands, Kauai has a thriving bird population. Because there’s no natural predator, roosters and hens are everywhere (literally everywhere). You’ll see them on the beach and along the street. When you don’t see them, you’ll certainly hear them, as they generously provide a kauai-wide wake-up service.
We can’t wait to return to this paradise in the Pacific. For now, we’ll just have to daydream about the ono burritos at Kilauea Fish Market, the shaved iced, and the hiking trails.
When to visit Kauai
Kauai has two main peak seasons: (1) mid-December through Easter and (2) mid-June to Labor Day (early September). To save money on accommodations and avoid the crowds, come in the spring (mid-April to mid-June) or in the early Fall (September – November). We arrived in Kauai on Labor Day, and stayed for 9 days. Early September proved to be perfect. The weather was warm, but not too hot. And, it wasn’t too crowded.
