Two miles in to a secluded beach, then two more miles into this valley that ended with the Hanakapi'ai Falls - 300 feet of waterfall that fed into a natural Olympic-sized pool! This is seriously the kind of waterfall people dream about - it was absolutely mesmerizing.
After a little dip, rest and snack, we hiked the 4 miles back out. It was a grueling hike, but I think we had mentally prepared for it since so many people had told us about it, so we managed :) If you ever find yourself in Kauai, this hike needs to be at the top of your list!
Views, views and more views.
See the little microscopic person? The picture doesn't even get the whole waterfall either!
We took a dip at the falls. It was FREEZING.

We treated ourselves with shaved ice after the hike :)
P.S. Back to blogging! Hope I can keep it up again this time!
