Kahauloa Cove was another one of my favorite stops while I was in Honolulu. Activity-wise, there’s not THAT much to do here (although I do hear that a lot of people go fishing here), but the views are absolutely amazing! It’s definitely worth taking a detour for. The rock formations are gorgeous, and when the waves hit the rocks, it’s quite a sight! I totally felt like a mermaid here, haha. You’ll see what I mean when you see the pictures.
I’ve been to Hawaii a total of 4 times now, but this last visit was a totally different experience. I stayed with a friend’s family in Honolulu, and really got a taste of the local culture and daily lifestyle. I highly recommend staying with friends in Hawaii as opposed to a hotel/resort (unless you’re honeymooning or something). My first 3 visits to Hawaii were memorable, but not special, if that makes any sense. I went to luaus and museums and some of the famous landmarks, but I never really got to experience local life. And I think the locals are what make traveling so special–they give you the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in their culture. It was seeing versus experiencing, for me. And this most recent visit was one of the best experiences of my life! And while these local landmarks are not places you would normally find in a tourist book, they mean something to the people there. And I think that alone is enough reason to visit.
On another note, there’s still one week to enter my Arbonne giveaway (giving away some pretty great products!). Check out the post HERE. Have a great rest of your weekend! 🙂
