When we took our honeymoon to Hawaii we made it an absolute must to spend some time on the Island of Kauai’i. The reason for that is simple, it’s beautiful. This is the island that Hollywood often turns to when it needs a tropical shooting location and it’s no wonder why with its jungles and beautiful rivers.
We reached these falls after hiking for a few hours, first along the coast and then turning inland to follow the river to falls themselves. We hiked in our sandals and jumped right in the fresh and cold water and got to having as much fun as we could…then we quickly got out and dried off because that water was cold. Having now traveled the whole world and ‘seen it all’ I can safely say it’s days like these spent finding a hidden gem that makes travel special.
IF YOU GO: It’s easy to travel Kauai’i so long as you have a rental car to do it in. We just booked a stay for one of the many Hawaii hotels and drove clockwise and counterclockwise around the island. On one side of Kauai’i is a canyon and on the other side is this beautiful coast. If I did it again, I’d spend more time in Kauai’i and not even bother with that canyon….it’s filled with sawgrass!
