Kauai - The Garden Island June 29th to July 5th

June 30th

We travelled to Kauai, before Sunit finally leaves for his 2 year stint as an MBA student at Ann Arbor. Here are some pictures from the first day of our trip with more to follow later.

A white sand beach, Kealia Beach was just a few miles north of our hotel and the first one we visited when in Kauai.








Located on Kauai's northern end, Kilauea Lighthouse has the world's largest clamshell lens.







Anini beach is one of the most protected along the North Shore of the island. A fringed reef runs the entire length of beach. And it is here, that Sunit took his first dip into the ocean




Travelling back from our drive to the North end of the island, we came upon the Taro fields of Hanalei. These flooded taro fields, called kalo lo'i, are an ancient way of life in Hawaii.




Located off the north branch of the Wailua River, are the Opaekaa falls. An overlook provides an excellent viewing area from where we viewed the falls before finally heading back to our hotel for the evening.

Thanks for visiting, Mridula. Kauai beaches are indeed beautiful. But my husband tells me that some of the beaches is southern Kerala are equally so. Infact a lot of Kauai was very similar to Kerala.
