“A beautiful lava pool! Please only visit if you are able-bodied and not during the winter months due to rough shore break! Please be careful when using this trail and pool access.”

“It's the Grand Canyon of the Pacific! Our favorite hike there is to Waipoo Falls, along the Canyon Trail, where you are in the canyon, with amazing views, and can swim in a small waterfall pond, and stand at the top of Waipoo Falls, a cascading 800 foot waterfall.”

“The Na Pali Coast is a very special place. The pali, or cliffs, provide a rugged grandeur of deep, narrow valleys ending abruptly at the sea. Waterfalls and swift flowing streams continue to cut these narrow valleys while the sea carves cliffs at their mouths. Extensive stone walled terraces can still be found on the valley bottoms where Hawaiians once lived and cultivated taro. Enjoy the incredible beauty of the Napali coast by boat, helicopter or for the fit and adventurous on your own two feet! The trail is graded but almost never level as it crosses above towering sea cliffs and through lush valleys. The trail drops to sea level at the beaches of Hanakapi'ai and Kalalau. The Kalalau Trail is an 11 mile trail that leads from Ke'e Beach to Kalalau Beach. Originally built in the late 1800s, portions of the trail were rebuilt in the 1930s. A similar foot trail linked earlier Hawaiian settlements along the coastline. For most backpackers in good condition hiking the 11 miles will take a full day.”

“Polihale is framed on the west end by the Na Pali Cliffs and offers sweeping sand dunes and a 7-mile stretch of white sand beach. Polihale is typically hot and sunny and offers amazing sunset views over Niihau and is excellent for stargazing. Surfing and swimming should be left to those who are familiar with Poihale as there are some strong offshore currents that make swimming dangerous. Camping by permit only. Dirt parking lot. Public bathrooms and showers. No lifeguard on duty.”

“From mauka to makai and back on up again. The beauty and excitement of Kauai extends as far as the sandy beaches of Poipu to the tip-top of Mt. Wai'ale'ale. It's hard to completely take in all that is Kauai if you're just sitting on a beach, but when you're 5,000 feet above sea level, there, can you truly capture the vastness of this tiny rock in the middle of the ocean. A great place to experience this side of Kauai is from the Koke'e State Park; it is located on the West Side of Kauai, North of Waimea town. Koke'e offers visitors an excellent spot to explore an estimated 45 miles of hiking trails; you will be able to witness valley lookouts, lush rainforests', and swampy terrain. To learn more about the different hikes, click here. Those who have an interest in the geology, ecology, and climatology of Kauai, may want to checkout the Koke'e Museum. Visitors can gain some valuable tips on the surrounding area as well as information on volunteering to aid the forestry services. If you want to know more about the Koke'e Museum, click here. If you get an appetite while up in Koke'e, make a stop at the Koke'e Lodge, right across to the museum. It's a fully operating restaurant that provides a place for visitors to unwind after a long day out adventuring or for those that are just preparing for the trek ahead. You may even inquire about cabin rentals if you're thinking about spending a night in the wilderness. One thing to remember, this is a fair warning: you will lose cellular service once up at Koke'e. That can't be a bad thing, right?”

“Kalua pig roasted in the earthen imu oven. Ono mahimahi and tasty chicken adobo. They’ll even get some of you up on stage to try some hula moves as dinner winds down.The lyrical sway of the Hawaiian hula, the colorful precision of the Tahitian drum dances and the fiery emotion of the Samoan fire knife dance all speak deeply of the people who have come to call Hawaii home. They proudly share this rhythm of aloha with you.”

“Allerton Garden (Lawa`i Kai) is a garden paradise, transformed through time by the hands of a Hawaiian Queen, a sugar plantation magnate, an artist and an architect. A series of garden rooms unfold between the Lwa`i Stream and the cliffs of the Valley with the focus on landscape design. This is indicative of the ahupuaa. The sound of water is in abundance in pools, miniature waterfalls, and fountains. Tour the Gardens on your next visit to Kauai, the Garden Isle.... Allerton Garden is managed by the National Tropical Botanical Garden for the Allerton Gardens Trust.”
