Situated on a crescent-shaped bay, Hanalei is a traditional Kauai small town with calm and beautiful beaches. Standing on the historic pier, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the beautiful mountains on the other side of the bay across the soft white-tipped ocean. Hanalei has been the setting for many movies and novels, yet it has maintained its traditional environment, making it a popular destination for travelers who want to experience the laid-back atmosphere of the North Shore.
Kauai, one of the Hawaiian Islands, is called the "Garden Island" because most of the island is covered with tropical rain forest. The dynamic and spectacular scenery, including steep seaside cliffs and majestic canyons, is so beautiful that it will leave you speechless. Kauai is also known as the birthplace of Hawaiian culture, and you can experience Hawaii's history of coexistence with nature firsthand by touring the sacred heiau, Wailua Falls, and the Fern Grotto associated with the royal family.
