Kauai exudes all the charms of tropical island life. The pace is slow and relaxed, locals are friendly… and nothing stays open late. What it lacks in high-rises (no building is taller than a coconut tree) it makes up for with towering sea cliffs, deep canyon ridges and huge waterfalls.
Only ten per cent of Kauai is developed and the majority of the islands natural attractions are inaccessible by road. To get to know Kauai best one should navigate the coastline, set off on foot or private tour through its lush interior or take to the air for a breathtaking 360-degree view.
Kauai has a smaller version of Arizona’s Grand Canyon, aptly nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”. Stretching 16 km long and almost 1 km deep, this awe-inspiring valley makes Kauai one of the most intriguing Hawaiian Is-lands to experience by helicopter. Witnessing the Napali Coast sea cliffs from an aerial vantage point is also spectacular. For a once-in-a-lifetime exclusive heli-tour fly with Island Helicopters Kauai, they land at Manawaiopuna Falls, the stunning waterfall made famous in the blockbuster “Jurassic Park”. Other helicopter companies include Safari Helicopters, Blue Hawaiian, Mauna Loa, Sunshine Helicopters and Jack Harter Helicopters.
