Hawaii is the newest of the 50 states of the United States, and the only state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of the archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. Because it is located in the center of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii has many North American and influences from Asia, with its own native culture active. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of Oahu.


Part of Kauai’s charm is its lack of high rises and a large urban center. Small towns separated by corridors of green space define the island, which means that getting around requires wheels. Your best bet is to rent a car in advance from one of the rental agencies at Lihue Airport.

There is taxi service at the airport, some hotels offer shuttles, you can rent a limousine and a chauffeur and tour bus operators pick up passengers for prearranged tours, but don’t expect to hop on a public bus.

The Kauai Bus, which provides limited service throughout the island, does not stop at the airport.
