Crouching Lion

Crouching Lion has been on my bucket list for a few years now. After seeing snaps of this blue water and view I begged almost every weekend to go! After reaching the top it's safe to say this has become my favorite view. I made sure to wear my old Nikes becuase this hike can get muddy!

Kayak To China Mans Hat

Kayaking to Chinamans Hat has been on my Oahu Bucketlist sense I did my Island Tour! In Hawaii, it's basically impossible to enjoy road trips like you would on the Mainland, so we get pretty creative making our own ha! Paddle Boarding and Kayaking to Oahu's neighbor islands provide the best way to get that 'instate road trip' feel on island!

Jack Ass Ginger Falls

Everyone loves a good secret, but sometimes things are just to good not to share! Jack Ass Ginger Falls is a small swimming hole and waterfall located right in the Honolulu/Manoa area. To my surprise, it is actually basically in someones backyard! But it is a completely public trail and waterfall!

Sea Glass Beach

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.

Hanalei Pier

Can we just take a second to admire?! And my pictures hardly do it justice. Hanalei Pier Beach Park is so beautiful and here for many to enjoy! From adventure seekers jumping from the bridge, families picnicking on the pier, or paddlers and snorkels across the water, their is something for all beach goers.

Salt Pond Beach

Welcome to Salt Pond Beach! Nicknamed for its salt collecting ponds, this beach has a ton to offer! It sits on the south side of Kauai between Kaumakani and Hanapepe. It is right next to the Port Allen Airport so at the right time of day you may even catch a few takeoffs!

Shark Cage Diving

Living in Hawaii, I have the wonderful opportunity to explore so many great beaches, but more importantly so many great fish! Snorkeling in Hawaii's warm waters has easily been my favorite thing about living on island. Along with this, its important I aquatint myself with those dangerous fish: sharks.

Kahala

Kahala Beach Park is my absolute go to beach here on Oahu. I mean for EVERYTHING. To snorkel, to float, to talk, to take pictures, to read, to tan, to think, and to BE. It is so amazing. It is just beautiful clear water that is up to your knees for miles.

Makapuu Tidepools

The State of Hawaii recently worked on the re-pavement and safety of this hike making it and extremely popular hike, including its on Snapchat geo-filter! Here you can read more about the project. But because of this it has drew WAY more crowds than I thought possible. About 3/4 up the trail you will see these tidepools. There actually is a semi-marked path all the way down and is relatively easy!

Below is a short video of the trail, it's s o  c o o l! I highly recommend this hike because it's easy, stunning, and who doesn't love a waterfall!?

Skydiving

I think its safe to say that Skydiving is my new favorite sport ;) I went last year with my best friend on the North Shore of Oahu. We jumped with Pacific Skydiving and had the most amazing experience you could ask for! A beautiful day, hilarious instructions, oh ya and WHALES! We went during whale season and falling through the sky I saw 3 HUGE humpback whales. Too cool.

Swimming in the Sea

Growing up in Colorado, I was always dreaming of the water. I was landlocked there, and the only source of water near me were a few lakes and a man made reservoir. I loved seeing pictures and watching documentaries about sea life and I just dreamed of getting to see and experience those things one day. I honestly think thats what sent me to Hawaii, despite all the craziness that comes from living here, I would never trade it for the world because of the ocean.

I'M ON TOP OF THE WORLD!

Or at least that is what it felt like hiking the Pali Notches located on the East Side of Oahu. This insane trailhead and can be accessed right by the Pali Lookout! The views on this hike are spectacular, but let me warn you this hike is not for your average joe-shmow!!

The views from atop Diamond head are so BLUE! The amazing views of Waikiki from way up here are some of the best. It totally puts everything into perspective and if you are staying in a near by hotel, you just might be able to spot your room :P

Road To Hana

Twin Falls is a great way to start the trip! With fruit stands and banana bread stands it's a nice place to start and get breakfast! Not only that but a very short walk will take you to the twin falls! I did the Road To Hana in the Winter, so flooding and muddy water is almost unavoidable! During the summer season you can swim and hang out in these falls which are blue then! Make sure you bring some old tennis shoes in the Winter because the path was pretty muddy!

Waimanalo

The bluest of blues water and the whitest of white sand is what you get on the voted number on beach on Oahu. Waimanlo is on the east side heading North towards Lankiai beach. The water is so blue and relaxing you can float out there for hours! Many people bring floaties and fins and play all day.
