Another Hawaiian island!
Kauai is the oldest and most northern of the Hawaiian islands. It’s nickname is the garden island.
Personally, Kauai is my favorite (So far. I havn’t been to Molokai or Lanai yet) out of the four I’ve been to. The reason is to really just fits me. I love Oahu, but it’s very crowded. Maui is very beautiful, but extremely expensive. Big Island is great, but seems pretty barren in parts.
For me, Kauai is the best of all worlds. It isn’t crowded, but it didn’t feel like I was the only person on the island. Sure, it’s not cheap (this is Hawaii, after all) but it wasn’t as expensive as Maui.
Plus, Kauai didn’t get it’s nickname as the Garden Isle for nothing. It’s extremely beautiful here ❤
If you can only go to one island, I’d have to recommend this one.
I know this post has more pictures then words, sorry! But my time in Kauai was just extremely relaxing. Sleeping in every morning, walking by the beach and going around to explore the island. There’s a lot to see, everywhere just just incredible.
Random flip-flips in the sand with a tiny coral heart picture is random ❤
Above is Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge with a lighthouse in the middle. It rests on the northwest coast. You can’t see it in the picture, but there’s a huge ledge off to the right with several nests.
If you do come, do try the shave ice. Not shaved, just shave. It’s different from a snow cone, in that it isn’t crushed ice. They shave tiny tiny pieces off. Plus here, you can get it in fresh tropical flavors.
Anyway, that’s about it for this post. Sadly, this is my last Hawaii post (for now. Who knows what the next few years will bring =) Like always, thanks so much for checking out my blog.
I super appreciate it! Have a great day
