Kauai is broken into four general areas, by geographical direction: north, east, south, and west. And though Kauai isn’t a very large land mass by any mainland continent standards( it is the fourth largest island in the Hawaiian Island archipelago), the fact that there is not a road that passes through the islands remote, steep and largely uninhabited interior makes traveling on Kauai a unique experience as well. There is one main road that connects the different towns along the shorelines, but the famous Na Pali Coast makes it impossible to drive completely around the island, so the roads appear in a horseshoe-like fashion around Kauai’s shores with most of the hotels and resorts found very near to or directly on the coast.
