Photos: Epic Campsites From Around the Hawaiian Islands

I’ve spent the past two weeks on Hawaii, traveling between five different islands and working on a variety of stories. I took my first ever trips to Molokai and Lanai, revisited Maui and Oahu, and conquered the Kalalau Trail on Kauai, one of the world’s toughest island hikes (despite starting and ending at sea level, it climbs and descends 5,000 feet over the course of the one-way 11-mile trek).

In between hotel stays for stories, I’ve been appeasing my adventurous side by checking out different camping areas around the islands. As you might expect, the scenery is pretty spectacular, and I’ve become very fond of the sounds of the waves massaging me to sleep at night. Below, I’ve put together a glimpse of some of the sites I’ve called home this trip.

Turns out, ocean views don’t have to cost big bucks:

  1. Hawaii stole my heart this summer. We were on the Big Island and Oahu. I loved the pace and rural lifestyle of the Big Island. And. the. food.
