Kauai’s infamous for its red dirt. The deep red dirt covers roadways, sidewalks, shoes, buildings, cars and stains everything.
What causes Kauai’s dirt to be so red?
Kauai is one of the oldest Hawaiian Islands giving the high iron content of the volcanic soils plenty of time to oxidize, producing red dirt.
Visit the Dirt Shirt store on the west side of Kauai and bring home a red dirt shirt. The quality is excellent and the price even better- the Waimea store is the only store on Kauai with $10 Red Dirt Shirts.
