Gayle’s Pick: Kauai, Hawaii
While there were a few initial selections, the clear winner was Kauai, Hawaii. Being the most natural and least developed of the major islands presents the couple with a relaxing, restful, and remote escape. Their base would be within walking distance or on the beach at a smaller, nearly isolated resort so Deeks could effortlessly partake in daily surfing with or without Kensi.
Cruising around in a convertible, possible activities might include more surfing and/or a spa visit at Princeville, a hike at Waimea Canyon State Park (the Grand Canyon of the Pacific), a whale-watching excursion, or an ATV adventure at Kipu Ranch, a popular location in many feature films. A helicopter ride to view the magnificent Wailua Falls, would provide a fitting backdrop for and alternative interpretation for the site made famous by the TV show Fantasy Island.
A traditional luau is a definite must, providing the ultimate metaphor of “playing with fire!” Finally, splurging on a special dinner at the thatched-roof bungalows of the Grand Hyatt’s Tidepools, surrounded by calm koi ponds followed by a moonlit stroll on the connecting beach make for a perfect romantic evening.
