Aloha! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the beautiful island of Kaua‘i. Our hope is that you will discover the many treasures our island has to offer—from the ‘ono (delicious" food, to the spectacular sights, and of course, our wonderful and welcoming community.

Derek S. K. Kawakami - Mayor, County of Kaua’i
Island of Kauai

Hawai‘i is renowned for its diversity of culture and spectacular landscapes that have inspired and enchanted visitors for centuries. From our fabulous beaches and inviting waterfalls, to the powerful telescopes that explore the universe from the snow-capped summit of Mauna Kea, The Big Island offers an unparalleled range of exciting activities for all those who visit.

“…there’s no comparison to the response I’ve received from my ads in Best Guidebook and the Dining Magazines. Nothing has been more successful in continuing to produce art sales and increasing name recognition. I can honestly say that my business is thriving because of these publications.”

Maui has much to offer. From bustling Lahaina to the natural beauty and unblemished landscapes of Haleakala National Park and the Road to Hana, Maui truly has something for everyone.

As a top producing real estate professional based in West Maui, I help people in a variety of ways beyond selling and buying real estate. On a daily basis, I refer to the Lahaina Dining Art & Shopping publication when directing visitors to the finest West Maui restaurants and retailers. It is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my work because I “give back” to the West Maui business community by sharing my favorite West Maui attractions to the world… all from one publication!
