The last two days of the cruise where spent at the island of Kaua’i. Of all the days and locations on the trip, I enjoyed Kaua’i the most. If you ever decide to take a trip to Hawaii, I would highly recommend Marriott’s Kaua’i Beach Club. It’s located on the beach of a beautiful cove with access to great surfing, and a smattering of fun shops and vendors.

The main reason I appreciated Kaua’i was the dynamic terrain. A tropical mountain island with a large canyon branching out through the center. Dusty ridges accompanied by jungle valleys. Waterfalls, beaches, cliffs, and winding roads. Lots to see in such a small place.

Here are some photographs of our trek around the island.

Several days into our trip, we hiked through the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Our half-day adventure took us down into the Kīlauea caldera. Many of these pictures are in and around the cladera.

Hiking trail on an abandoned road
Part of our hike took us around the rim of the caldera. During parts of the trail, we walked along this section of abandoned road. It was no longer in use because large sections of it had fallen into the volcano during eruption.
