Exploring Accessible Charms of Kauai

Kauai is known as the “Garden Isle” for its lush greenery, tropical landscapes, and amazing beaches, Kauai, Hawaii, is paradise! I made my first trip to Kauai a few months ago and I fell in love with the island immediately.   It’s a much different island experience than Oahu, for example.  So, if you’re looking for lots of bars, restaurants, and crowds on the beach, Kauai may not be for you.  But, if you want a true island vibe, with numerous uncrowded beaches and a smattering of resorts and small towns here and there, then Kauai may be right for you!  Please don’t misunderstand me.  This island is not a remote destination with nothing to do or see.


Here you’ll find just the right mix of resorts, small towns with bars, restaurants, and attractions in more of a quieter atmosphere.  I found it very difficult to find accessible taxis on Kauai, so I rented an accessible van through Wheeler’s Vans. They’re a small business with locations on each of the Hawaiian islands and they are super accommodating.  They will meet you at the airport upon arrival and again when you depart the island!  visitors of all abilities can enjoy its charms.  I also had the opportunity to tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters again on Kauai. 

Touring with Blue Hawaiian is the best way to see all of the islands with little impact on the environment.  Look for my comprehensive article about them on this site.  And, who knew that hotel rooms are sometimes booked months, if not years, in advance on Kauai!  Accessible rooms are rare!  I was fortunate enough to stay at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay.  The is a true luxury hotel and fortunately they had one accessible room.  It was one of the finest hotels I’ve stayed in and the room was beyond comparison.  If you want to treat yourself, you need to stay here.
