    8. Hike the Kalalau trail.  This is not for everyone, but if you want a great workout and amazingly awesome views, hike the Kalalau trail to a breathtaking beach (4-miles round trip)or on to Hanakapi’ai Falls (8-miles round trip). This hike REQUIRES HIKING BOOTS if you go on to the falls.  I did it in my Tevas and my feet were blistered and hurting for days afterwards.  Bring lots of water and snacks.  You will get muddy and wet.  Totally worth it though…best activity we did on the island.
  1. Spend the day at Secret Beach.  This beach is hidden down a short, steep trail with views of Kilauea Lighthouse, shade and deep in crowded beaches.
  2. Kayak up the Wailua River and hike to Secret Falls.
  3. Soak up some sun and float in the calm waters at Salt Pond on the west side (Leeward) of the island…perfect if it’s rainy on the windward side.2016-09-08 15.20.32
