Kauai is called the "Garden Island," and it is the Hawaii's oldest island. It is rich with tropical greenery due to its abundant rainfall. Because it is the Hawaiian island that has been most changed by erosion, Kauai island has natural treasures like Waimea Canyon and the NaPali Coast. As the oldest island in Hawaii, Kauai has the most sandy beaches of the island chain.
Port Allen Harbor is located on the southern shores of the island, which receive less rain than the northern and western areas of Kauai. Temperatures do not vary much on Kauai, ranging from a low of 18°C (64°F) in January to a high of 29°C (84°F) from July through September.
Near Port Allen Harbor is Hanapepe, Kauai's "biggest little town," which has not changed much over the past century. Its historic buildings have been used for several movies and are now home to shops, art galleries, and local restaurants.
Located in nearby Lihue, the Kauai Museum is a cultural storehouse for artifacts and art created by Native Hawaiians.
