Kauai, Hawaii

Careful of those waves!

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.

Hawaiian specialties: pineapple and ahi tuna

Hawaiian specialties pineapple and ahi tuna: it’s easy to cook for yourself when staying at a vacation rental like Fern Grotto Inn

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:

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.
