The north coast of the island of Kauai features gorgeous mountains and fabulous gardens. Try a hike along the coast to a lonely beach that will have you uttering words like “paradise” over and over.

Kukui O Lono golf course costs just $9 U.S., and you can play all day. Not a great course in terms of conditions, but the people are a blast and the views tremendous.

If you’re not a golf fan, Kukui O Lono has gorgeous gardens you can check out for free.
