Kaua’i Paradise

The last of our pictures from our honeymoon in Kauai!! I fell in love with this island. We already want to go back to do more and see more of its wonder! These are miscellaneous pictures that we took throughout the trip. Here is a little mini travel guide of things we recommend doing in paradise!

Kauai To Do: 

  • HIKE the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali Coast to Hanakapiai Beach (4 miles roundtrip)
  • SNORKEL at Tunnels Beach, Ke’e Beach, & on the Na Pali Coast
  • BOAT with Na Pali Experience along the Na Pali Coast into the sea caves
  • SWIM at Hanalei Bay Beach (and jump off the pier!) & Queen’s Bath
  • EAT as much seafood, fresh fruit, & sushi as possible but a few of our favorites were Trucking Delicious, Sushi Girl, The Dolphin, St. Regis Makana Terrace, Wishing Well Shaved Ice, Kauai Bread Co., Shaved Ice Paradise, & Foodland (they have tons of yummy local stuff and their poke is delicious)
  • DRINK fresh coconuts from fruit stands, Kauai Juice Company, Kauai Coffee Company, Aloha Maid canned drinks, Aloha Juice Bar, & Koloa Rum
  • LUAU at Smith Family Garden in the Wailua River State Park
  • MEET locals at Ha’ena Beach Park, Hanalei Beach Pavilion, Hanalei Pier, & Hanalei Farmer’s Market
  • PACK as light as possible, only the essentials (no closed toed shoes!)
  • RENT a jeep, snorkel gear, & surf or SUP boards
The prettiest church ever in Hanalei. They have a ceremony in Hawaiian every Sunday.
In a red ginger forest fairyland. Pure bliss!

Wild heliconia (lobster claws). So beautiful! I am such a plant lady.

Little jungle waterfall on the hike to Queen’s Bath.
This guy at Queen’s Bath got a picture of us right as a wave was breaking onto the lava rock.
Queen’s Bath in Princeville. It was super close to our resort!
Tyler throwing some shakas.
Chaos are hands down THE best shoes for Kauai. I don’t think Tyler took his off all week! We hiked in them, swam in them, waded in them, went out to eat in them, and they gripped right onto the laval rock. This was our secret “chill” spot 🙂
Other than my hair, I like this picture of me!

Ke’e Beach!
Ke’e Beach with some AMAZING organic, cold pressed juice from Kauai Juice Company! This drink was called the ‘avatar’ and had coconut water, pineapple juice, chia seeds, and e3 live blue majik (algae).
The rocks at Ke’e Beach are covered in lush green algae. This is another great snorkeling beach!
More rainbow magic. Anytime it rains in Kauai, look for a rainbow!
The iconic plumerias.
One of my favorite meals we had in Kauai from Trucking Delicious! They serve local Hawaiian style plate lunches out of a food truck. This is coconut shrimp, rice, and kimchi.
My favorite, Hanalei Bay Beach & Pier.

Hanalei is my bae!
The flowers at the grocery store in Kauai are on another level!
Super delicious lilikoi frosted cinnamon roll at Kauai Bread Co.
