Small town Hawaii at its best

Hanalei is a great little laid back town, good for walking the beach, shopping, or walking around town and enjoying the atmosphere. There are several good restaurants, a great coffee shop and even some night life here. You can learn to surf or kayak up the river if you're up to a little activity. It is also a good stopping point if you are exploring the beaches and hiking further west toward the Napili coast.

Hanalei Bay

The long, arching bay is great for a walk and some views. The pier at the east end is very picturesque.

Beautiful diversions

As this is the rainier part of Kauai, the vegetation is very lush. Tropical plants abound. Too bad you can't take them home.

    Nice Hanalei page, Tom! You should have tried Duane's Ono Char Burger instead of Bubba's. Where did you stay in Hanalei? Did you rent a house?
