Lush, rural Kaua'i is the Pacific Ocean’s magnificent jade temple. On Hawaii’s oldest major island, nature’s fingers have had time to dig deep – carving the unbelievable fluted cliffs of the Na Pali Coast and the tremendous ragged gash of Waimea Canyon. A mecca for hikers and kayakers, Kauaʻi is beloved by outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes, and it has been the darling of honeymooners ever since Elvis tied the knot here in Blue Hawaii. Forget coddling resorts, decadent shopping or bustling nightlife. Come to Kauaʻi for its heavenly art gallery – the one you find outdoors. The price for these works? Just a pair of boots and a little sweat.
