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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
