Kauai was one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. We went at the end of March to shoot an absolute dream wedding for Branch and Cole with Alison Events and really lucked out on the most beautiful weather the whole time! It's a small island so we stayed in the same Airbnb the entire time and could easily go anywhere as a day trip. We could have spent a month exploring but we just had a few days so we'll give you the highlights + our favorite spots!
This is where we swam in small natural pools right up alongside the ocean. It wasn't crowded but that's probably because it takes a little exploring to actually find the entrance and then make your way down the path. Totally worth it once you get there.
Go Blue Adventure
The boating experience of a lifetime. Tons of dolphins, in and out of caves, waterfall views, swimming with sea turtles...it was dreamy. Our guides had so much information to share about the island as well. Be aware if you're prone to sea sickness, it'll happen for suuure. But again, completely worth it and they provided us with ginger ale and snacks to help settle stomachs.
A dangerous spot so be sure and Google around about when to go and what the tides are like. Definitely worth the short hike down, even in the rainy weather we had. Huge natural pool.
The Fresh Shave for shaved ice
Ke'e Beach + Tunnels Beach (INSANE snorkeling here.)
Sushigirl (we went several times...)
Wailua River State Park (rent kayaks and go to Secret Falls. You can swim in and under the falls!)
And basically every waterfall you can make it to, even if you just see it from the lookout.
Ok that's enough, you get the point. We're in love with Kauai, and we gotta go back asap.
