Kona Hawaii - My Hawaiian Hiatus

Posted on July 10, 2013

As you all know we have been filming the fourth seasons of ‘Pretty Little Liars’, and since we started filming in March this has been our first week off for the July 4th long weekend.

All of the girls decided to take much needed mini-vacays to recharge our batteries.  I chose to stay somewhat close (since I have been traveling quite a bit this year) and decided on a nice tropical getaway!  The last time I was in Hawaii was too long ago to mention ;) 

Below is a compilation of my trip highlights that I wanted to share with you all!  After my Hawaii research was exhausted…this was the place I wanted to go…Kona, Hawaii to the Four Seasons Hualalai Resort!

One of the things I loved about this resort was their ability to accommodate special activities and events such as this private dinner on the beach - it was absolutely breathtaking and they went above and beyond…truly memorable.

Fresh sushi…doesn’t get much fresher than this…

Mr. Turtle who just hung out beached on the sand all day - it is incredible seeing animals in their natural habitat untouched by society

I always like checking out restaurants recommended by other people so when I looked up ‘must go to places’ this was the first place to check-out and I am so happy I did! (Ahi Tuna Poke) Da Poke Shack

The official state flower is the yellow hibiscus (hibiscus brackenridgei), also known as the pua aloalo.

I love chips. Incase you didn’t know…and ANY excuse to eat them such as this little surfing chip bag… :P

We decided to check out a local beach and I am so happy we did! Beach 69 was STUNNING and so much fun for a day trip! Check it out here

Love sharing my photos with all of you…I could have posted a million but wanted to show you my personal faves!  Hawaii is a definite for all on ‘The Bucket List’ - there is so much to explore, see and do and boy, do I feel recharged…ready to keep on filming!

Happy Travels Everyone!
