Spending Time on the Water in KauaiThere may be some validity to the notion that since the interior of Kauai is mostly unreachable, so many Kauai visitors and residents spend a lot of time on the water.

Or maybe it’s the uncertainty of predicting where a new, gushing waterfall might pop out of the canopy of trees on the mountainside you look out on from your bedroom window each morning. Regardless, there’s something different about Kauai.
