One of the things we both really wanted to do coming to Kauai was hike!
This is the Garden Island, and it's true to its name. The center of the island is the wettest place on Earth (meaning it receives more rain than anywhere in the world).
The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. Green, lush, & colorful land that spills into the beautiful teal & blue ocean!
The hike to Hanakapiai Falls is 8 miles round trip. After the first two miles, you land at a beautiful beach, then another two miles - you are at the falls. The falls were prettier than I imagined. We both got in, but I couldn't go underwater... it was cold!
It's not a hard hike, but you definitely need endurance on the way up, we were racing up the hills and it was a great work out. It was also really muddy - so we slipped and slid a lot!
The hike took us about 4 hours and we had a wonderful time!
Thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post (especially about my hair) - I am still getting used to it!
We are off for another day of adventure in Kauai!
Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!!
