  • Hanalei Bay

    One of the more incorporated areas on the North Shore, Hanalei Bay has a reasonably diverse collection of restaurants and bars flanking the highway through town. Tahiti Nui is a great watering hole for catching some eccentric local flavor, boasts a world famous Mai Tai, and has live music most nights. If you're in the mood for scuba, rent some gear in town and head to "The Hole", a great dive spot right near the St. Regis at Princeville. Alternately, pick up some snorkel gear and tour the numerous beaches the North Shore has to offer, Tunnels and Ke'e in particular.

    Great place to take a walk by the water, go for a swim, or soak in some rays.

Description

Beautiful Hanalei Bay is the most prominent Bay on the northern coast of Kauai. This scenic area is home to some two miles of absolutely pristine beach that is usually the most lively such sandy location on the island. During the summer months the bay is a great place to enjoy snorkeling or paddle-boarding in the relatively calm waters offshore. Come winter, the waters swell up a bit as surfers and surf spectators flock to the big waves. There are a number of quality restaurants and hotels around here that make this a great area from which to base your Kauai vacation.
