Kauai. The Garden Island; a mecca for travellers whether you’re socialising with many or seeking pure, unadulterated solitude. If you’re going solo, fear not, you’re guaranteed to make friends, and if you’d really rather not, there are plenty of isolated spots to appease your inner hermit too.
It would be borderline criminal to visit here and not partake in a kayaking adventure along the fifteen-mile stretch of rugged Ne Pali coastline. Defined by towering cliff side that’s cloaked in colour; as imposing as they are grand, lava formed sea caves and thundering waterfalls, take the all-day tour and you’ll spend up to six hours navigating Kauai’s finest natural wonders.
HOT tip: After some solo pampering that’s a little less strenuous? If you’re in Kauai on a Friday, definitely check out Hanapepe Town’s Art Night. As the island’s art capital, the plantation-style village boasts plentiful art galleries, many of which open their studio doors on a Friday night to celebrate local artwork.
