This quaint port was named for the wiliwili trees that grow here in profusion. Known as the Garden Isle, Kauai claims the wettest spot on earth - Mount Waialeale, with 486 inches of rain per year. All this rain makes lush vegetation, taro, pineapple and sugar plantations, famous Fern Grotto and a huge variety of native flora. You may also visit Waimea, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and Sprouting Hole, a blowhole that sends a geyser 50 feet into the air. Or, enjoy a swim at the very beach where the movie South Pacific was filmed!
