Kauai is one of the few places I’ve been to that surpasses the hype. And believe me, I had heard plenty of hype in advance from my brother, who adores the Garden Isle for its chilled-out vibe. It didn’t take long for me to feel like he was actually selling it short. So pristine are Kauai’s beaches, so sweet are its local flavors, so friendly are its people, that it is a minor miracle that the island hasn’t been overrun yet.
This portfolio of Kauai landscapes and local color focuses on the North Shore beaches, Waimea Canyon, Na Pali Coast and some snippets of stunning beauty in between.
