One of the notable things to go see on Kauai is the Tree Tunnel. It’s very pretty … you drive right through it. Loved seeing it.
And then I saw the tree tunnel that’s near Halnaker, England, and it made me want to go to England. Right now. Check out the wonderful picture on what’s proclaimed as the web’s # 1 photoblog. Very. Pretty. Picture.
After you’ve gone to England, don’t forget to go to Kauai. There are some very pretty things there, as well!
Drive from Lihue to South Shore, and you’ll go right through the tree tunnel.
When I wrote about the best botanical gardens, I should have mentioned the prettiest hotel on the island, the Grand Hyatt.
This south shore beauty is really a must see, if you’re not lucky enough to be staying there. The grounds are just fabulous. We did a quick walk-through, so I know I’ll have more pictures to take on our next visit. Meanwhile, enjoy the beauty I did capture!
The Kilauea Lighthouse is set on a prominent point on the north shore of Kauai. The view of the bay beside the lighthouse is the reason to go.
You’ll see the lighthouse, take the picture. Maybe there will be some nene on the grounds to take a picture of. Good.
Now, look at the coastline. Look at the albatross gliding on the wind currents above the ocean currents of that wonderful sea green bay.
Bonus: make sure you visit the Kilauea Fish Market for an ahi wrap on your way to or from the Lighthouse. It is the BEST wrap on the island. It’s the best restaurant for the money on the island, and it’s our favorite restaurant on the island.
This is series of pictures of just some of the statues on display at Kauai’s Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens. I have said it before: this is the best Botanical Garden we have visited in Hawaii. The incredible array of statues is just one reason why I hope to return to this beautiful place.
