Aloha!

If you’ve read my previous posts about the stunning “Garden Island” of Kauai, you’ll know that its definitely my favourite of the Hawaiian Islands (so far!), and that I can’t recommend it enough as a magical and idyllic escape.. especially during the winter months.

That being said, in my opinion, seeing Kauai from the air is a must do in order to fully appreciate the island – just find the most comfortable way for you – whether by plane or helicopter.
