 Popoia (Flat Island)

Saved the best for last, our trip to Kailua! Kayaked my way to Popoia Island which means Flat Island, learned so much about the island thanks to my tour guide. Truly enjoyed watching the water hit the dry coral island something about the colors and textures that I just couldn’t take enough pictures.

Fun Facts about Popoia: Wedge Tailed Shearwater come to the island to nest these monogamous birds are the cutest. The only way they’ll divorce is if they fail to breed and the male is to blame.

The island itself is a Seabird Sanctuary the fine is 10,000.00 if caught disturbing the birds..it might be 5,000.00 still a lot.

Hawaiians once used the island as a fishing shrine where they would offer fish meat to bring in good luck in fishing. The shrine, is no longer there.

This being my first kayaking experience I absolutely loved it. The lifejacket made me feel at ease, I tend to panic in deep water. Such a great experience.

After returning the kayaking gear I met back with my sister and headed to Lanikai(which was on my top three must do’s in Hawaii). Words can’t even describe the beauty of this place, its tranquil and enticing. From the entrance to this beach you know you’re about to walk into something amazing. The weather was amazing that day too it was just perfect.

I am a huge fan of artsy stickers, had to snap a pictures of the ones that were on the entrance post. More specifically I was looking for this pineapple grenade that I saw the first day in Oahu, never saw it again.

Na Mokula (Two Islands) Moku Mui  the larger one and Moku Iki the smaller one are also Sea Bird Santuary locations and activity is limited and according to my tour guide dangerous.

This is the end to my Oahu Bliss…my love for Hawaii is immense and I hope to go back again.
