I have a love affair with Kauai. Of all the Hawaiian islands, Kauai is arguably the most diverse: white sand beaches, lush tropical forests, friendly rivers, rugged coasts, breathtaking canyons and beautiful waterfalls. Although each island in the chain has its own unique charm, if you like all things green, flowers and seclusion and love to hike, you are going to fall, Read More

It’s no secret that Hawaii is inherently photogenic. The great diversity of beaches, the tall mountain peaks covered in lush vegetation, the magnificent sunsets,  they all make great subjects for landscape photography. I think it’s pretty hard to take a bad picture in this tropical paradise. Over the years I visited the islands many times and managed to accumulate a great, Read More

There are few places in the world as beautiful and diverse as the Hawaiian Islands, which is one of the reasons why so many of us keep going back. The Hawaiian archipelago is made up of eight major islands, out of which only six are opened to the visitors. When it comes to visiting, Read More

It’s hard not to fall in love with a tropical island. For me, there’s nothing more relaxing than laying down in the warm sand and gazing at warm crystal blue waters.

        Kilauea Crater                One of my favorite trips when we visit the Big Island of Hawaii is the Volcanoes National Park. This place is absolutely spectacular,  a first hand encounter with the the raw nature. If you are staying in Kona, which you most, Read More

        If there is something that makes the Big Island of Hawaii really unique is its two active volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Kilauea. There are not very many places on this planet where you can still watch the earth being born.  Two of the areas where you can view the lava flow and its destructions and creations are, Read More

            From the Hanakapi’ai Beach we continued up the valley for another 2 miles, to Hanakapi’ai Falls. The area is beautiful, with fresh water streams and waterfalls, but the hike is strenuous and challenging.  The road is totally unmaintained and difficult to navigate.          Some parts of the trail have, Read More

        Did you ever start a hike and soon wish you never did? Such was my feeling shortly after we began walking the gorgeous, but strenuous 11 miles (one way) Kalalau trail along the Na Pali Coast of Kauai. When we started the hike we didn’t anticipate the difficulty of the road. Although it was the dry, Read More
