Baking Bites in Kauai

Hanalei Bay

I just got back from a quick trip to the island of Kauai. The trip was a little bit last minute, but there is no such thing as a bad time for a trip to Hawaii as far as I’m concerned. I didn’t do any posting about the trip while I was away. I did, however, do a lot of relaxing, sightseeing and – of course – eating while I was out there and have plenty of posts on some great foodie spots on the island to catch up on in the next couple of days. First, however, I can’t resist sharing a couple of snapshots of the island first.

The above photo is of Hanalei Bay, on the North side of Kauai. Definitely a great photo spot and place to spend a relaxing afternoon watching people fish on the pier.

Poipu Beach

It’s impossible not to look at these blue waters and wish you were right there on the beach – especially since the water is warm all year round. This is a shot from Poipu Beach, on the South side of the island.

Kauai Coastline

This coastline, also on the South shore, is a little rougher looking – but still beautiful.

Spouting Horn

Spouting Horn is a landmark for the South side of the island, where geyser-like jets shoot out of a hole in the lava rock when waves crash into shore.


Part of the local fauna, a gecko.

Feral rooster

Feral chickens are just about everywhere, and I saw some of the prettiest (and largest) roosters I’ve ever seen strutting about. The baby chicks were pretty darn cute, too.

Kauai mountains

Took this shot from the roadside as we drove around the island.

Koloa town

Koloa is a small, cute town that is just north of Poipu Beach


The yellow hibiscus is the state flower, but they come in all colors.

Footprints on the beach

Nicole with a coconut

And finally, a quick shot of men enjoying a fresh coconutĀ  just to prove I did something other than stand behind the camera the whole trip. A big hat is a must for traveling to a sunny place. Stay tuned for more details and some great food shots from the trip!


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely trip, and your pictures bring back so many menories! (I lived on Oahu for three years, and travelled to Kauai a few times to visit friends.) I do miss the magnificent water and weather.

  2. I visited Kauai 2 years ago, and absolutely loved it! We’re hoping to get back next year, this time with our son. Can’t wait to get back over there!

  3. Not sure which photos are the most tempting right now; Kauai or the yummy pound cake??

  4. We were just in Kauai as well (perhaps we crossed paths but didn’t even realize it!) Love the photos of all the food. Brings back memories, and cravings, of the local fare. Mmmmm….

  5. I just moved to Maui a few months ago and it’s so exciting to see another foodie checking out some local Hawaiian food! I’m so glad you’re visiting. Enjoy!

  6. Kauai is my favorite island! I have eaten at all the places you mentioned and Pono Market is my favorite too. That’s actually where my husband and I got our wedding license when we were married in Kauai a few years ago. Love the pics you took!

  7. Love the photo of the chicken!
