HAWAI'I

 

Kauai blogposts coming soon! In the meantime...

KAUAI RECOMMENDATIONS:

Kauai by ckanani.com
  • Hike the Kalalau trail on the Na Pali Coast.  2 miles to the beach, 2 more miles back to the waterfalls.  Go early to beat the crowds. Watch out for nudists :)
  • Visit Waimea Canyon, the grand canyon of Hawaii!
  • If you're up for some movement, Canyon trail is a gorgeous hike through Waimea.  Pretty tough. Wear good shoes.  View is amazing.  3-4 hours roundtrip.
  • Wailua Falls to view a beautiful and somewhat famous waterfall (good photo opp)
  • Brennecke's Beach is, according to my mother, home of the best body surfing in the world! Not sure about that but I can confirm Brennecke's Beach Broiler is an amazing spot for lunch and a cold drink :) casual but really good with a pretty view
  • Shipwreck Beach - hot sun, calm water
  • For a fun local bar (also seen in the movie The Descendents), try Tahiti Nui
  • Behind the Dolphin Restaurant in Hanalei there is a fish market - the poke is the best on the island
  • Ke'e Beach for a sunset picnic :)
  • Since most of the island is not accessible via car, a plane tour is a great idea!  Wings over Kauai was wonderful
