The mai thai’s were by far my favorite part of the “cruise”.

Third day on the island, we went on a “dinner cruise”.

Fourth day we visited a secret beach. The road there (and back) was FULL of back to back potholes, but it was SO worth it.

After the secret beach (south shore), we headed to Kapa’a (east shore) for some shopping and dinner.

We kayaked a couple miles up the Wailua River then hiked the canyon a couple more miles. We returned right before sunset, it was amazing!

The next day we drove to the north shore to Hanalei beach. It started to rain about an hour after we arrived but it was so beautiful and Marc (the boyfriend) and I both love the rain so we enjoyed it.

A stunning view of Hanalei before making our way down and out of the north shore.

On the last day we hung out in a cabana enjoying some cocktails and food while taking in the amazing ocean view from Poipu, once named America’s best beach by the Travel Channel.

The view from our condo, about 20 feet from the water. Ah-mazing! It was the perfect spot for breakfast and catching up on a bit of work in the evening.

We say this little guy on our last day in Kauai. I took this shot from out balcony. It’s as if he was saying,”Don’t go!” At least that’s what I tell myself.

Big fluffy clouds and a light wind make outside look a bit overcast and refreshing, it’s like autumn is has arrive early. But it’s LIES! It’s hot and NOT refreshing. This is making me wonder why I am in the desert in the summer. My plan was to be in Hawaii but we’re getting ready to move so I’m stuck here for the foreseeable future. At least I have about 300 photos from our trip to Kauai that I can longingly look at to remind myself that the whole world in not a desert. While looking through them I realized I hadn’t shared them so here they are!

In my opinion, we picked THE best spot to stay. We rented a condo at Kuhio Shores and it was perfection. We were about 20 feet from the water and facing the ocean. Staying there was also perfect because we were only 6 minutes form Old Koloa Town, which has great food, shopping, a grocery store, a post office, and more. Even closer than Old Koloa Town is Poipu Shopping Village, only 3 minutes away. We went there for shopping, coffee, and dinner several times. There is also Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center about 6 minutes away, next to Poipu beach, which also has great dinning and shopping options as well as a grocery store and a farmers market.

A local told us about the secret beach which is near Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center. After what seemed like a half hour (it was much shorter) of driving straight through potholes, there was a very short hike, about 5 minutes, through a wooded area which takes you straight to the hidden beach. From the condo to the hidden beach it was probably 30 minutes at most. If you’re thinking about visiting Hawaii and you want a relaxing, low-key vacation, you need to check out Kaua’i, also known as the “Garden Isle”.  If you need tips or recommendations, feel free to ask either here or on our Facebook page.

Nubes grandes, esponjadas y un viento ligero hacen que el clima aparezca un poco nublado y refrescante, es como que el otoño ha llegado temprano. Pero es MENTIRAS! Hace calor y NO esta refrescante. Esto me hace preguntarme por qué estoy en el desierto en el verano. Mi plan era estar en Hawaii, pero estamos a punto de movernos, así que estoy atorada aquí por el futuro previsible. Por lo menos tengo unas 300 fotos de nuestro viaje a Kauai que puedo mirar con nostalgia y  recordarme a mí misma que no todo el mundo en un desierto. Mientras miraba estas fotos me di cuenta de que no las había compartido así que aquí están!

En mi opinión, elegimos el mejor lugar para quedarnos. Rentamos un condominio en Kuhio Shores y fue la perfección. Estábamos a unos 7 metros del agua y frente al mar. Nuestra estancia allí también era perfecta porque estábamos a sólo 6 minutos de Old Koloa Town, que tiene buena comida, tiendas, un supermercado, una oficina postal, y más. Incluso más cerca que Old Koloa Town, esta Poipu Shopping Village, a sólo 3 minutos. Fuimos allí para ir de compras, tomar café, y cenar en varias ocasiones. También esta Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center cerca de 6 minutos de distancia, junto a la playa de Poipu, que también cuenta con grandes opciones gastronómicas y comerciales, incluyendo un mercado y un farmer’s market.

Un habitante de Kaua’i nos contó de una playa secreta que está cerca de Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center. Tras lo que pareció una media hora (en realidad fue mucho más corto) de conducir directamente a través de hoyo tras hoyo, hubo una excursión a pie corta, alrededor de 5 minutos, a través de una zona boscosa, que te lleva directamente a la playa escondida. Desde el apartamento a la playa escondida era probablemente 30 minutos máximo. Si usted está pensando en visitar Hawai y quiere una vacación relajante, de bajo perfil, debe de visitar Kauai, también conocido como el “Jardín de la Isla”. Si necesita consejo o recomendaciones, no dude en preguntar, ya sea aquí o en nuestra página de Facebook.
