KauaiLand in Kauaʻi is very fertile and is home to many varieties of fruits and crops. Guava, sugarcane and pineapple are all grown on Kauai.
The city of Līhuʻe, on the island's southeast coast, is the seat of
Kauaʻi County and the second largest city on the island. Kapaʻa, on
the "Coconut Coast" (site of an old coconut plantation) about 6
miles (9.7 km) north of Līhuʻe, has a population of nearly 10,000,
or about 50% greater than Līhuʻe. Waimea, once the capital of Kauaʻi
on the island's southwest side, was the first place in Hawaiʻi
visited by British explorer Captain James Cook in 1778.
The island of Kauaʻi has been featured in more than 70 Hollywood
movies and television shows, including the musical South Pacific and
Disney's 2002 animated feature film and television series Lilo &
Stitch. Scenes from South Pacific were filmed in the vicinity of
Hanalei. Waimea Canyon was used in the filming of the 1993 film
Jurassic Park. Parts of the island were also used for the opening
scenes of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Other movies filmed here include
Six Days Seven Nights, the remake of King Kong and John Ford's 1963
film Donovan's Reef.
