Isolated in Hawaii's northwest corner and the only island to never have been conquered, the island of Kauai has always been the state's most daring. Rugged and remote, everything on Kauai seems to be a little rawer than elsewhere. While there are some island activities-- such as tow-surfing the 60-foot waves of King's Reef -- that are reserved for only a handful of mortals, slightly more reasonable opportunities for adrenaline, bravado, and the urge to try new things lay scattered all about this adventurous island wonderland.
