Aloha! For most people, paradise is the beautiful beaches of Hawaii, but if you have never been there, it can be overwhelming. From the exotic food to the well-kept secrets. Every Hawaii-goer wants to experience their vacation to the fullest. Luckily, there is now a digital guide book to help you explore Kauai, the fourth largest main island of Hawaii. Meet Kauai Revealed, your digital tour guide to Kauai, Hawaii.
Kauai Revealed makes searching for hotspots fun and simple. Launching the application, you are greeted with a map of Kauai. You are then given several choices for finding your desired location. First, you can search for it. The top left-hand corner features a nifty Search button that opens a search bar. You can then type in any keyword such as Boat Tours or Beach and the results will instantly pop up below. If you prefer the guidebook layout, simply tap the Guidebook button in the top right-hand corner. This button lets you navigate through several categories such as Shopping, Adventures, and, Activities. Most of the categories are broken down into the four regions of the island to help plan your day better. If you are too lazy to search through the guidebook or search bar, you can simply tap the “Locate Me” button. This button will let the application find your location and quickly bring up the nearest attractions. My personal favorite navigation tool is the large map located in the center of the screen. You can zoom in and out to find key roads, landmarks, and cities all along the island. When you find the area where you want to search for attractions, simply tap that part of the map. After a few moments, the application brings up a list of cool activities nearby.
Kauai Revealed is not just for finding attractions; it will also help tourists learn about Hawaiian history, culture, weather, and rules. I highly recommend reading these articles so that you don’t get caught committing an unintentional crime such as picking up a shell from the beach. Overall, Kauai Revealed will have any tourist roaming the island like a seasoned native. It is a bit pricey at $6 but cheap compared to its hard copy big brother. So before you hit the beaches of beautiful Kauai, check out Kauai Revealed.
