Kauai's laid-back atmosphere, endless strips of beach, lack of big commercial areas, rich culture, dramatic scenery, and world-class hiking are the reasons why I keep going back to this island.
The full epic-ness of this hike doesn't happen until you do the full multi-day hike which requires a permit from the state’s Department of Land and Natural Resources.
I loved JoJo's combination flavours which comes with their own mac nut ice cream which is absolutely to die for.
To me, Waimea Canyon is a bit of a choose-your-own-adventure kind of place. If you're down for a little adventure, there are a ton of hikes to do that range from easy to challenging.
This hike is one where you can go as far as you want and turn back but it is 2 miles in each direction and is classified as “Easy”.
In Kauai, you should do your research or travel with a native. Every other beach appears to be a secret beach, especially up north towards Hanalei and Princeville.
