Format: Paperback
Michele Bigley's account of Kauai was well researched and incredibly thorough. I spent six months on Kauai, but, this book made me realize that I had barely scratched the surface on Kauai's deep and rich history. In addition, Bigley leads you to 'off the beaten path' beaches and sites that show a part of Kauai most tourists never see. Highly recommend this book.

Excellent book for planning a trip to Kauai. The book includes many maps, pictures and 13 page section on the history of the island. The author obviously has a great love for the island and this sets the book apart from many travel books which often just become lists of things to do without much thought put into it. Reading this book, on the other hand, you get the feeling of being guided by someone who really cares about, and knows, the island.

All the phone numbers and addresses for restaurants, hotels, museums, etc. are there -- but it's the little details (e.g. the highlighting of more out of the way spots, the historical and cultural detail) that really sets this book apart from the others. Highly recommended.

I can't recommend this book enough. I've been to Kauai several times and thought I'd seen and done it all, but this book shows me that I haven't. I'm going again this spring and can't wait to check out all of these great recommendations! Also, there's not a lot of info out there with an eco-slant, so it's a refreshing new option.

Great book to read before visiting Kauai as well as useful while visiting Kauai. Highly recommend this book. We have visited twice and still refer to this book for suggestions and ideas as well as general knowledge of the island

Kauai: Great Destinations Hawaii: A Complete Guide (Great Destinations)

A great book if you're planning on visiting one of the more interesting islands. Although I've already been to Kauai before, now after having gotten the book, I'm thinking I need to go back. It turns out there were things I never knew were there, and this book gives all kinds of great information not only about the island itself, but about its people as well. A "must have" if you're visiting Kauai for the first time or even a "regular".
