Singularly, the most comprehensive guide to Hawaii's "Garden Isle," Kauai. The author hiked every single hiking trail, splashed in the ocean at every beach, negotiated every bend on every road on the island, and even jammed with a Jawaiian reggae band at Poipu. The descriptions are vivid, including those of the fabulous Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon, and lush, romantic Hanalei and Lumahai Beach - interwoven with myths and lore of Kauai's legendary people, the "menehune." There is no stone left unturned: sunny Poipu to Polihale Beach along the far reaches of the island, Lihue, Wailua, Kapaa, Koloa, Hanapepe, Wailua Falls, the Fern Grotto, pools at the bottoms of waterfalls, vista points, sacred "heiaus" - you name it. The book includes 13 indispensable maps, more than 500 practical listings for hotels and resorts, B&Bs, vacation rentals, restaurants, campgrounds, beaches, hiking trails, water sports, golf courses, events and so forth, and hundreds of web addresses. There is a Hawaiian glossary, of course, and illustrations and special features on Hawaiian flowers, fish, seashells, and leis. Worth every penny!
