Road Trippin’: through Kauai: Hawaii

 

Flying in from Oahu, Kauai proved to be quite the stark contrast in more ways than one. For instance, the red stained dirt roads, roosters aimlessly wandering throughout the entire island and with rainforests perched right by the beach were just a few to name, but anyway…I was in total awe. Kauai is stunning, and aside from the obvious fact the island is a nature haven for all outdoor and adventurer lovers, it is also so peaceful and quiet (like the total opposite of busy Waikiki!).

Pretty much as soon as we landed, we picked up our car and headed straight for the beach, all the while doing a little off roading and adventuring (and getting lost) to find other great beach spots around the south of Kauai!

Up along the Northern Coastline of Kauai are beautiful beach towns and beautiful scenic routes to get to the end of the road; which is at Ke’e Beach and also the beginning of the Napali Coastline track. The hiking track runs for kilometres and is quite strenuous and tiresome! Expect to trek up steep rocky hills and wet/slippery ground and through lush rainforest. It goes without saying the Napali Coast is absolutely stunning though and the views are incredible. We loved it! Ke’e Beach was also a major highlight also!

There are very few street lights across Kauai, making it difficult to drive once the sun goes down!

We spent a day exploring Waimea Canyon, also known as the ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific’. There are a selection of lookouts to stop and observe the views and also many hiking trails and places to camp! To reach the canyon lookout is quite the drive, but we stopped at various viewing points along to way to break it up. The views were absolutely breathtaking though! At one point we were above cloud level which felt unreal!
