The Island of Kauai is home to miles of white sand beaches, any one of which can become the perfect setting for a sunset picnic. You'll feel the warmth of the sun long after darkness falls, as you watch the stars twinkle in the night sky. The next morning, breakfast can be as simple -- and exquisite -- as this: Rise with the sun and in the warmth of the morning, savor the fruit of Nature's labor. A note for those who need to be kick-started: relax -- your coffee was probably grown on a Kauai estate.
