Hanalei Bay, Kaua’i

As beautiful as some of Southern California’s beaches are, they are no match (not even you, Solana Beach) for the ease and beauty of the shores back home. Here at Hanalei Bay on Kaua’i’s North Shore, find a parking spot on the sand, the grass, the gravel so long as you aren’t blocking anyone in. Make like the kids and leap off the pier and into cerulean paradise. Admire the lush, green backdrop of surrounding mountains. Chances of spotting a waterfall or two: likely. Life was made for days like this.

Nearly five years since my last trip home, June brought me back to Kaua’i for the anticipated (or dreaded for some…most?) high school reunion. My friends and I took our short visit to return to some of our favorite spots. Here, the first in a three-part series on my Garden Island’s must dos.
