Adventure Mondays | Kalalau Beach Kauai Sunset | Destination Wedding & Adventure Photographers

Kalalau beach sunset - Kauai destination wedding photography Kauai has got to be one of my favorite places I’ve ever been. It’s indescribably beautiful and diverse. Fun fact – my parents and I moved there when I was 6 months old and we lived happily on that gorgeous Hawaiian island until I was almost 7. I traveled back to Kauai a couple times as a kid and then once as a teenager (actually right before I traveled to Boston for school, met Matt and… well… the rest is history). This photo is taken at Kalalau Beach on Kauai’s legendary Napali Coast. The only way to access this stunning beach is either by boat or hiking the 11 mile Kalalau Trail. Just a side note…you do need a permit to hike beyond Hanakapiai Beach and camp overnight in the spectacular Kalalau Valley. This photo of sunset on Kalalau Beach is one of the only photos I have from my last trip to Kauai. The first time I experienced this trail, I did so from up high on my dad’s back. Years later I was able to hike it myself. What a rewarding hike it is! To be able to share this beautiful place with my kids and Matt one day is an absolute must…. I see a Kauai trip in our future!

I live on the road full time traveling the country in my dream home on wheels – a 38' long fully off grid, converted bus.
