5 Reasons to Love the North Shore of Kauai

Kauai is one of the most beautiful islands in the world, and the North Shore of Kauai is the most beautiful part of Kauai. With its lush landscapes, oxygen-rich air, blissful beaches, and self-perpetuating serenity it is easy to see why this magical paradise is called the Garden Island. If you ever get a chance to visit, don’t hesitate. It will be one of the most magical trips of your life.

  1. Blissful Beaches

Kauai’s beaches are everything you’ve ever wanted in a stretch of sea and sand. Sunbathe on the powdered shores, wade into the warm unclouded water, and enjoy the abundant coral and wildlife that make Kauai’s surrounding waters home.

  1. Heavenly Hanalei Bay

This natural, half-moon crescent bay, that is cradled by mountains, waterfalls, gentle waves in the summer, and a magnificent pier, makes this one of the top contenders for beach of the year.

  1. Small-town Charm

The quaint towns of the North Shore – Kīlauea, Princeville, and Hanalei, each very unique in their own way, take you back to a simpler more peaceful life and time, where unwinding and recharging comes naturally.

  1. Infinite Hikes

Commanding mountains, dramatic cliffs, magical coastlines, and breathtaking vistas everywhere you look make Kauai and the North Shore a divine landscape for hikers and walkers to traverse.

  1. The Nāpali Coast

Whether by helicopter, foot, or boat, the dramatic coastline, vivid colors, sheer cliffs, and unmatched views of the ocean make the Nāpali Coast an absolute must-see as well. Only 15 miles as the crow flies from the North Shore, , a trip to the Waimea Canyon, nicknamed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” will reward you with breathtaking dips and peaks, lush vegetation, and towering waterfalls.
