Description

Kauai est la plus vieille des îles principales de l'archipel d'Hawaï et la quatrième par la superficie, avec 1 446 km2. Son littoral mesure 177 kilomètres de longueur.

Elle est aussi connue sous le nom de Garden Isle (Île Jardin).

La côte Nord de l’île est plate, juste en bordure de hautes montagnes pointues, très verdoyantes et pleines de cascades.

Au centre de l’île il y a la montagne la plus arrosée au monde, avec plus de 10 mètres de précipitations par an !!

Hanalei est une grande baie, assez ouverte mais protégée par une petite barrière de corail. Le cadre est grandiose, juste à côté de Napali Coast, la côte de falaises qui s’étend à l’Ouest. On peut débarquer en annexe dans l’embouchure d’une grande rivière, ça déferle un peu à l’entrée, mais ça va.

Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Island chain, and has some of the most unique geographical, natural beauty of any island on earth.
Aside from the being the wettest place on earth - with an average annual rainfall of 440 inches (over 36.5 feet) - the 553 square mile island of Kauai is complete with deserts, rainforests, beaches, swamps, and mountains.
