Known as the “Garden Island”, Kauai is the oldest inhabited island of the seven major islands of the Hawaiian Archipelago. After approximately seven million years, nature has had plenty of time to sculpt this island into a real beauty with lush flora, dramatic canyons, and spectacular beaches. Hollywood has come to Kauai to film “paradise” many times. You may have seen Elvis Presley wiggle his hips amongst the swaying palms of Kauai’s eastern coast in his movie Blue Hawaii. Also filmed here was one of the top grossing motion pictures of all time, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. In the hills and valleys of the islands are said to be the homes of the “menehune”, leprechaun-like creatures who are never seen, but are believed to perform great works overnight. Enjoy beautiful Nawiliwili, Kauai.
