Kauai is one of the places in the world that you really do have to see to believe. I had seen it before, I just didn’t know it. Jurassic Park, The Descendants, Soul Surfer and many other movies have used Kauai as its setting and it is obvious why. Kauai is absolutely beautiful. This was my third trip to the Hawaiian islands and there is no doubt that my absolutely favorite Hawaiian island is Kauai.
We were active in Kauai, we did not spend a single day just lying on the beach. Kauai is for adventure! If you are looking for more of a lying around on a beach, Hawaiian holiday I would suggest Maui. (Blog article on Maui coming soon) Kauai is for explorers. Don’t get me wrong there are tons of gorgeous beaches in Kauai but the island has so many safe, beautiful, relatively accessible one of a kind natural “attractions” it would be a shame to miss them.
Pictured left is my family and I eating breakfast in Po’ipu. There is a food counter in nearby Koloa at the Sueoka’s Grocery store called Sueoka’s Snack Shop. For $7 per person we had bacon, eggs, toast etc. Trust me this is the cheapest breakfast on Kauai. It is a quick drive to Po’ipu beach from there and you will find yourself eating in breakfast in paradise and out on the road ready for adventure.
Over the next few days I will cover off what I think are the top five “must do” activities in Kauai because, man its cold outside and I need to think about somewhere hot 🙂 Here is a shot of my kids playing in the waves at Shipwreck beach right outside of our gorgeous hotel the Grand Hyatt…..Until tomorrow… Aloha.
