After my second trip to Kauai and making it 4 miles on this beautiful trail, I thought it was time to update this post! However, I decided to just make a brand new one that's super organized, and full of everything you need to know about this amazing journey.
Aloha from the Garden Isle! This island is home to some of my favorite spots in all of Hawaii like Queens Bath and Tunnels Beach. After my latest trip to the Waimea Canyon, I just may have to add the Red Dirt Waterfall to my list! This stunning mini fall is a true eye catcher and defiantly worth the stop.
The Na Pali Coast just might be the most magical place on earth. Home to unreal sea cliffs + waterfalls, turtles, dolphins, and sea caves for starters. I truly think it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and seeing the coast with Blue Ocean Adventures is the best way possible.
The Garden Isle is a hidden pacific gem. This island is full beauty everywhere you look - from soaring cliffs, unique beaches, unreal canyons, and stunning waterfalls - Kauai will blow you away. Check out 10 fun things to do on Kauai below!
The Na Pali Coast has to be one of the most enchanting and magical places in the US. Twenty-two miles of unforgettable views and magic with every step. The Na Pali Coast has no road ways for those 22 miles and the only way to access this beautiful coast is by foot on the Kalalau Trail or boat.
Chances are if you have heard or read anything about the island of Kauai before, you have probably heard of two things: the Na Pali Coast and Queens Bath. And no matter what pre-conceived notions you have about either of them, go and see and experience them! They are just as magical as Instagram makes them out to be. Queens Bath is a giant Tidepool located on Kauai's North Shore in Princeville.
Hopefully you are familiar with the Waimea Canyon now from my previous post if not catch up here! Inside this massive and amazing canyon is an 80 foot free falling waterfall called Waipoo Falls. Before getting to Kauai I did tons of research on what to do and I stumbled upon a website talking about hiking to the top of this waterfall. It actually sounded like a dream to me. But I wrote it down on my itinerary and did some more research to be sure. I tried to get as much info as possible to avoid surprises, but it still turned into a pretty spontaneous and adventurous time!
I was so anxious to go to Kauai and see the Waimea Canyon for my self. I had recently seen it a few times on Instagram and was memorized by the fact there was a giant canyon on an island. It seemed to good to be true! It was the first item on our list once arriving on kauai. We got settled in our car and started the almost 2 hour dive from the airport to the opposite side of the island to Waimea.
Sea Glass Beach is located on the South Shore of Kauai about 10 minutes from Salt Pond Beach. It is such a unique beach because the sand is mostly made up of Sea Glass! Sea Glass is made from broken bottles, windshields, flasks or anything glass really. The movement of the ocean smooths it out over time and add this frost like finish to it! It is truly amazing.
One of the best things about Kauai (although their is many) is how many abundant and stunning waterfalls their are. Opaekaa Falls is located on the east side of Kauai about 15 minutes from the Lihue Airport or 5 minutes from Wailua Falls. It is totally worth going if you have your own rental car and are down to drive around and explore some!
