I’m not sure why it has taken months for me to post this travel diary on Kauai. It seriously was one of the best trips ever, and is such a beautiful and laid-back place. It’s simple in Kauai and the island’s natural beauty draws you in.
Kauai is the oldest and most northern of the Hawaiian islands with a vast and unique terrain, great for both adventure and beach seekers. The north shore of the island is lush and green (but can be quite rainy depending on the time of year you go). It has a ton of great beaches that are safe for kids, waterfalls, hiking trails and the jaw-dropping Na Pali Coast, which you can visit by boat, helicopter or even by a three-day hike. The south shore of the island is dry, hot and sunny equipped with a variety of resorts, golf courses, old towns and Waimea Canyon State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Kauai is a magical place, and should be on your bucket list if you like to be surrounded by breathtaking vistas, adventure and a chill island vibe. Plus, it’s a fantastic place to take the kids with so many activities and family-friendly hotels to choose from. Here’s a glimpse into our trip:
