It seems like a lot of people are traveling to the Hawaiian islands this year, despite all of the restrictions and cautionary measures that are put in place. This was our first time to Hawaii and we put a lot of efforts towards choosing the right island, planning activities and dinner reservations, and all of the other logistics that go into planning a trip.
We chose Kauai because it’s less tourist-y than most of the other islands, which means fewer people travel there and that played a big part in our decision because of covid. Kauai also really stood out to us because it was said to be more for adventurous couples; It has beautiful beaches, but also plenty of outdoor activities like kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, and other tours.
Most of the island is uninhabited, and actually protected, which means no roads or any way to navigate, which also means the best way to see the entire island is by helicopter. Overall, I would highly recommend anyone with an adventurous spirit to check out Kauai! It was one of our favorite trips.
