Kaua`i is a tropical paradise – one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Nature is abundant here, full of medicinal plants, fresh wild edibles growing, bamboo forests, rivers, ancient stone (pohaku) walls, Kalalau, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” (Waimea Canyon), and world-class beaches. Relax fully with meditation and yoga classes and experiencing the natural beauty of the Garden Isle. Slow down and embrace the Hawaiian spirit of Aloha. Enjoy each breath from the ocean to the forest. The superb scenery will enchant you with valleys and cliffs that rise a mile high out of the Pacific Ocean! Experience Kaua`i the ancient way, in the peaceful forests, the way Hawaiians once lived on the land (aina). Leave only footprints; take only pictures.
