Kauai as Seen from the Skies

Overview

Along with its neighbor Niihau and the bird sanctuary islets Lehua and Kaula, the northernmost island of Kauai-also the oldest in the main Hawaiian Island chain-is slightly isolated from the rest of the archipelago. Appropriately known as "The Garden Isle," Kauai truly lives up to this nickname with its lush landscapes, deep valleys, and emerald cliffs.

Overview

Along with its neighbor Niihau and the bird sanctuary islets Lehua and Kaula, the northernmost island of Kauai-also the oldest in the main Hawaiian Island chain-is slightly isolated from the rest of the archipelago. Appropriately known as "The Garden Isle," Kauai truly lives up to this nickname with its lush landscapes, deep valleys, and emerald cliffs.

Many areas of Kauai are historic, dating back to the days when sugar thrived. Today, most of the towns and rural communities on Kauai are enduringly peaceful and serene and have retained its idyllic charm.

Koloa, once the agricultural center of Kauai, and Kapaa offer great country drives while Lihue, in spite of being the islands major town and busy government and commercial center, is still friendly, laid-back, and down-to-earth.

Kauai claims some of the most significant landmarks in Hawaii such as Waimea Canyon-"The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" and Mt. Waialeale- the wettest spot in the world. The sheer drops of the Napali coast and the sparkling waters of Lumahai Beach exude Kauai's quintessential, natural beauty, making the island a favorite location for Hollywood filmmaking.

Because of the grandeur of these places, Kauai offers a different experience when you step back to enjoy the view. In Kauai As Seen From The Skies, island photographer Douglas Peebles takes you through a spectacular tour of Kauai's remarkable sites as you've rarely seen them before... from the skies.
