I know, I know.. I totally lagged on finishing blogging about our Kauai trip, but let's
start daydreaming go back to day 6.
It was a beach beach beach, and some more beach kinda day. I guess that's the kinda thing you do in Kauai, right? ;) It was also the day we had the very best meal of our trip, but more on that later.
We started our morning on the North Shore and headed to Secret's Beach. An absolutely stunning beach that really looks like it belongs in the movies. It's beauty just unreal. Park near the houses that are right by the path that takes you down to the beach. Expect to hike about 10 minutes downhill until you see what really looks like paradise. Spend a few hours, relax, and enjoy the beauty. We didn't snorkel at Secrets, but saved that for our next stop along the way.
After a few hours living our honeymoon dreams at Secrets we started craving a good snorkeling session. We had heard some good things about the snorkeling at Anini Beach Park and decided to head north and give it a try. The beach wasn't the most beautiful but the water was calm and we saw a ton of sea turtles. If you have the time check it out, if not.. you're probably better off checking out other beaches on Kauai. ;)
Next up, we drove south and made a little pit stop at Wailua River State Park. The area is so green, and straight up looks like like a scene out of Jurassic Park, or maybe it really is a scene out of Jurassic Park considering the movie was filmed on Kauai. ;) Either way, the Wailua River State Park is filled with secret little streams and paths, definitely worth a little detour.
We spent the next few hours enjoying the yummiest meal at Hukilau Lanai, but more on that later. If you are going to Kauai make sure you hit up Halekai Lanai it's SO GOOD.
