I had my first trip to the island of Kauai last month. I was surprised by how each Hawaiian island is so different (I’ve been to Maui, Oahu and the big Island). And I was especially surprised at how relaxing it was for a work trip.
Kauai was lush and green and laid back. The winter waves can be powerful, but there are a few beaches with sheltered areas that are safe for swimming and better for snorkelling too.
A fantastic day for me is watching and listening to the waves crashing, followed by a dinner of barely seared ahi tuna, with pineapple for dessert. I’m happy to report that Kauai gave me the opportunity for plenty!
I’ve got several Kauai pics on my TravelEaterJohanna Instagram feed if you’re into wave pics, and here are links to my articles so far:
- A wayward weekend on the Garden Isle, Kauai, for The Wayward Post.
- Ko’a Kea Hotel and Resort at Kauai’s Poipu Beach, for Luxury And Boutique Hotels.
- Fern Grotto Inn: Idyllic self-catering cottages in Kauai, Hawaii, for Boutique Travel.
- For The Wayward Post, highlighting Fern Grotto’s Inn’s sustainability and history: Review: Fern Grotto Inn in Kauai, Hawaii.
Note: My trip to Kauai was a hosted press trip, but all opinions are my own and no one from any of the companies mentioned reviewed or approved my articles.
