Kaua‘i Honored as Hawai‘i’s No. 1 Island and Fourth-Best Worldwide by Travel + Leisure

Results Tabulated via the Publication’s Annual ‘World’s Best Awards’ Numerical Rating System

(Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i) – The Kaua‘i Visitors Bureau today announces that Travel + Leisure magazine has named Kaua‘i the fourth-best island in the world and island-rich Hawai‘i’s No. 1 island.

Announced Friday in customary fashion on the “Today Show”, these distinctions for Kaua‘i were garnered via a numerical rating system which tabulates feedback from Travel + Leisure readers.

Survey respondents judged islands on five characteristics: natural attractions, activities/sights, restaurants/food, people and value.

One of Kaua‘i’s highly acclaimed activity options is its golf, which includes a coalition of golf clubs and affiliated resorts, virtually all of which are rated among the best in their category. They combine to offer visitors a wealth of holes, diverse beauty, terrain and design styles featuring everything from tropical golf brilliance to layouts overlooking the Pacific Ocean from cliffs caressed by trade winds.

“Kaua‘i is honored by this award as it comes from travelers, people who have many choices but opt to spend their precious time and resources based on their experiences,” says Sue Kanoho, Executive Director of the Kaua‘i Visitors Bureau. “Visitors are increasingly recognizing our golf experiences which is appropriately reflected in our promise ‘Kaua‘i: Discover Golf’s Ultimate Island Green’ ”.
