Travel Thursday | Waimea Plantation

You must be wondering, "Where's the plant?".

Me too, I was thinking; since in the itinerary it actually stated "plantation" hence I should be seeing either a coffee or sugarcane plant somewhere (as we are in Hawaii). Instead a beach? This is even BETTER!

I was at Waimea Plantation Cottages in the Garden Isle of Kauai with my travel buddies Anna & Rosy. Yup! This is where they shot the popular (at one point of time) TV series "Ze plane! Zhe plane!" - Fantasy Island and Jurassic Park.

Few hundreds of us spent a day with family, friends & colleague at a Hawaiian beach, where food and drinks at abundance. The sea just waiting for you to take a swim, the sand waiting for castle to be built and the sunset waiting for pictures to be snapped. How good can it get? Am so blessed.

Where's your favourite beach getaway?

Happy Travel Thursday!

In the UK, it has to be the White sands of Morar ( check out Google images) but so difficult to get to that I have only been once. It's a bit cold a lot of the time so I'll opt for the west coast of Aruba...Get this- it was a free holiday from a local large shop back in 2002 !!

I love those blue and white umbrellas!! They are cute.

I love going to the beach anywhere really. I have to say Hamilton Island is just perfect. Even the beaches that are near my city are pretty much perfection.

Lily Riani said...

My fav beach... hmm.. I liked Batu Freingghi a lot, Siloso beach on Sentosa and Kenting in Taiwan. But I usually don't spend a lot of time on beaches. I think I should, hehe.

The best beach getaway I ever had was a quiet little beach in Gumbet, Turkey. It was off the beaten path and we were waited on hand and foot for the entire day by staff and allowed to keep a tab. I haven't been on many beach holidays though but hope to go next year.

Lily Riani said...


yeah... you should take a beach holidays. it will be soooo very relaxing.
