If there’s paradise on earth, it would be Kauai. It is without a doubt one of the most sublimely serene and beautiful place I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to.
Kauai offers everything a traveler could want or need for an ultimate vacation experience: breathtaking beaches, lush forest, majestic cliffs and emerald valleys, and as if the breathtaking scenery wasn't enough, surrounding you always is the majestic Pacific Ocean.
Before leaving for our trip, I’ve read in a travel guide that there are nearly 70 beaches on the island of Kauai; however, during our 8 day stay, we made it to five: Anini, Hanalei, Lumaha'l, Ha’ena and the beach at the Lydgate State Park. Surprisingly, each of them offered different atmosphere and scenery as well as advantages and highlights.
On top of the beautiful surroundings, what makes Kauai truly special is the diversity of cultures and its people, which is also reflected in the unique variety of cuisines you can find on the island.
