Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands and ranks fourth in size among them. It is popularly known as the Garden Island or the Garden Isle. Like the others Kauai is volcanic in origin and the highest peak on this mountainous island is Mount Kawaikini. The second highest peak is Mount Waialeale, which is near the center of the island. One of the wettest spots on Earth is found here. The annual rainfall, about 460 inches, is so high that it has eroded deep valleys in the central mountains and carved canyons on the terrain, giving rise to breathtaking waterfalls.
The city of Lihue, on the island's Southeast Coast is the seat of Kauai County and has two 18-hole golf courses. Kapa'a (or Kapaa), located on the Coconut Coast is the home of many sacred sites and Hawaiian cultural attractions and is sprinkled with fine restaurants and distinctive shops. The elegant and pristine Wailua Falls is a short drive inland and the object of many dreams. Waimea Town is located at the mouth of the Waimea River, whose flow formed one of the most scenic wonders that one could behold. The Waimea Canyon is called the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific".
Kauai has attracted over 70 Hollywood Film makers and its natural splendor has been captured on celluloid for the viewing pleasure of the entire world. Millions of tourists who throng here every year seek out the Alakai Wilderness Area, Allerton Gardens, the Fern Grotto, the Iraivian Temple and of course the Beaches.
