Sanuk Surfer, Kiana Fores, in Hanalei Bay

You may recognize it from being the backdrop in some major Hollywood films — Jurassic World, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lilo & Stitch (yes, really), just to name a few — but this Hawaiian Island doesn't just exist in the movies ... it actually does exist. It's Kauaʻi, and it is the spot for you and your friends' next getaway.

But don't take it from us. Surfer Kiana Fore is native to Kauaʻi and gave us the ultimate must-dos on the island — because everyone wants the intel from the locals, right?

First Stop: Hanalei Pier

Also known to the locals as "The Pier," Hanalei Bay is the ideal beach spot. Whether you are getting up to see the sunrise or wanting to get the perfect boomerang moment jumping off the pier, the Hanalei Pier is a must.

And for all of the surfers out there — Hanalei Pier is the only place on the island where you can see all of the waves and really check the surf.

The Farmer's Market

It's Kiana's go-to every weekend to support all of the local community farms, and it's a tourist's ultimate spot to get authentic coconuts or fresh guavas.

All Kauai's Hikes Lead to Waterfalls...

Literally all of the hiking trails — whether they're 8 minutes or 8 miles — lead to a breathtaking waterfall, and if you're lucky, a waterfall with a rope swing to jump in!

"The Common Grounds hike is like a real life Willy Wonka tropical land" — Kiana Fores

She also recommends the infamous hiking trail "" or what the locals call "Hanakaps."

The Na Pali Coast Boat Ride

Founded by two pro-surfers, every single local will point you in the direction of for literally the BEST acai bowl of your life. From drizzled peanut butter to the ultimate snow cone, this is the place to cool down and refuel.

Not to mention this super Instagrammable sign in it's backyard...

Sunset Yoga

For the ultimate zen experience, you *need* to do yoga. Try it either on the beach or (at her studio).

If you're strategic, you can do some yoga while watching sun set on the island. Kiana took us to this beach also known as, "The End of the Road," where surfers go to catch waves (remember Soul Surfer anyone?) and the only location on the island to catch the sunset in the wintertime.

The Island of Green Juice ... and Other Amazing Food

Kiana's Recs

For Juice... .

For Lunch... . (Get the ahi wrap!)

For Dinner... . (They have amazing sushi.)

For Packing...Definitely a pair of Sanuk Sandals, a sarong (a must for the island because you can tie it, wrap it, drape it, etc.), and bikinis...lots of bikinis.
