Although we provide the most amazing zipline tours in Kauai, at Just Live! we thought you would be interested in learning some fun facts about the island, especially if you are planning a trip to Hawaii for the first time. While we invite you to experience the adrenalin-pumping fun and adventure of ziplining, we wanted to tell you about some other fun activities, and give you a little history on the oldest of Hawaii’s main islands!

Kauai is the fourth largest of the main islands of Hawaii, with an area of 562 square miles. Located northwest of Oahu, Kauai is also referred to as the “Garden Isle.” With exquisite mountainous regions and a tropical atmosphere, one of Kauai’s mountains is known as the “wettest spot on earth.” Mt. Wai’ale’ale receives on average more than 360 inches of rain per year! Kauai is known for its lush gardens and in fact is home to Allerton, McBryde, and Limahuli, three of the nation’s five tropical botanical gardens.

Arizona isn’t the only state with a “grand” canyon – we have one of our own right here in Kauai! While it’s just 10 miles long, Waimea Canyon offers up plenty of trails to explore and was coined ‘the grand canyon of the pacific’ by Mark Twain.

While many people come to Kauai to simply relax and enjoy the beach, there are plenty of popular activities for those with a little more energy who want to really experience the island. Snorkel at Tunnels Beach, kayak or water ski on the Waimea River, take a helicopter tour, or do what many visitors do, hike the many trails that make it possible to enjoy the lush surroundings. Of course, you can always take a zipline tour where you can enjoy the amazing landscape from high above the treetops!

If you’re into hiking, many visitors enjoy hiking from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Beach along the Kalalau Trail, although it takes a couple of days because of the length of the trail, which is 11 miles. Camp along the trail while you rest and enjoy what many consider the most breathtaking scenery on Kauai.

As you can imagine, there is no shortage of things to do in Kauai, Hawaii’s oldest island. If you’re planning on staying for a week or so, why not do it all? Many people come to our beautiful Pacific islands only once in a lifetime, so make the most of your trip – and don’t forget ziplining at Just Live!
