Once your swimsuits are ready for a dose of vitamin sea, your shades are in that sunny state of mind, and you jet off above the clouds, Hawaii awaits. After traveling to this treasure of an island, I'm here to tell you first-hand you’ll find your very own slice of heaven in Kauai with a flower in your hair and your toes sinking into the sand. You'll live for waking up early to watch the sunrise stretch across the mountaintops, and you won't want to miss out on toasting to every sunset with a refreshing cocktail. With all of the colorful pictures you'll snap throughout your getaway, don't forget to jot down a few Instagram captions for Hawaii. After all, the right words are the coconut foam topping to your shave ice (aka, they're essential).

Whether you're embarking on a hike through the mountains, zip-lining through lush greenery, or snorkeling with some newly-found fish friends, you'll see Kauai's true beauty through your very own lens.
