How to Elope to Kauai
Kauai also known as the garden island is how I imagine Paradise will be. One of the most beautiful places and happiest places in the world I’ve ever been. Kauai has it all, pristine air, endless white sandy beaches, canyons, waterfalls, majestic cliffs, swaying palm trees, bright colored tropical flora with idyllic small towns like Hanalei. The whole Hawaiian vibe is great. Everyone is laid back, happy and life is simple. Food is pure and delish. It is picture perfect place to have an elopement. The ideal months to elope…. year round! Thumbs up to Elope to Kauai!
In my book, “The Eopement Experience,” this magical Island is listed as one of my top 10 favorite places to elope.
Kauai is perfect for any type of a romantic journey, especially for an elopement. Time permitting, you should try to combine your elopement with your honeymoon. You can also go island hopping.
You have quite a few different options for your ceremony: sunset on a beach, a quaint Hawaiian temple, a botanical garden, tree forest, near a waterfall or at the canyons.
You can choose to rent a cottage on a beach (Airbnb?) or stay at one of the iconic resorts. The options are many.
To begin planning your Kauai elopement, I have listed some of my favorite places to stay and things to do while on the magical Island below.
