“Hanalei Bay is quintessential Hawaiian beach that will surely create lasting vacation memories. Highly recommended for the incredible ocean views, rainbows, and waterfalls. The beach is perfect for long walks and the ocean water is always refreshing. The mornings are best for family photos. If you want to dial your vacation up a notch, I recommend surprising your family with a morning surfing lessons!”

“Open since 1963 this family owned bar and restaurant is a fun stop with good local live music nightly from 6 to 9 pm. We like to eat at AMA or BarAcuda and walk across the street after dinner for a drink and some music.”

Pier
“Hanalei Pier is located at the mouth of the Hanalei River. This section of beach fronts Black Pot Beach Park, a popular camping area for local families. There is a small boat ramp where you can launch kayaks to paddle the Hanalei River. Hanalei Pier has been used in numerous films including Bird of Paradise (1950) and The Wackiest Ship in the Army (1960). The beach on either side of the pier was the principal filming location for most of the beach scenes in South Pacific (1957). The Hanalei Pier was originally built of wood in 1892 and used to unload goods that arrived in Hanalei Bay by ship. In 1921 the wooden deck was replaced with concrete and the pier was extended. A shed roof was first built at the end of Hanalei Pier in the 1940s. Today Hanalei Pier is a popular gathering place for local fisherman. Tourists and locals gather to watch the surf and the sunset and the keiki "children" take great pleasure using the pier as a launching pad into Hanalei. ”

Park
“It's the Grand Canyon of the Pacific! Our favorite hike there is to Waipoo Falls, along the Canyon Trail, where you are in the canyon, with amazing views, and can swim in a small waterfall pond, and stand at the top of Waipoo Falls, a cascading 800 foot waterfall.”

“The food was very good, yet it was the atmosphere that put this restaurant on the hot list. Reserve a “toes in the sand” table out on the beach and enjoy live music, tiki drinks, and perfect waterfront view.”

“This beach is surrounded by coral reefs. The water is turquoise blue and easy to see in. In the mornings you may see turtles. Great paddle boarding, watch out for the turtles 😊 We recommend parking at one of the turnouts before or after the parking lots.”

Minigolf
“I am in the green. Wind 5mph to the east. Slight 10-degree angle downhill. Now, maybe if I just ricochet this off the cave wall hard enough… Located in Kilauea on the North Shore is Kauai Miniature Golf and Botanical Garden. It is the only mini golf course on the island. For those that have yet to test their putting game in this 18-hole course, there will undoubtedly be preconceived notions of mini golf being somewhat of a wacky carnival experience. Instead, you find yourself surrounded by greenery. As you make your way through the 18 holes you receive an introductory course on the diverse history of the islands. Visitors will learn about the Polynesian discovery of the islands, indigenous gardens containing endangered species, Zen gardens showcasing the influence of the Japanese and Chinese during the plantation period, and some insight on the plantation town that was alive and thriving in Kilauea in the late 1800’s. Do not let the garden scenery discount the fun of this course. You begin the first hole with a simple, short, straight line putt. Easy enough, right? Well, as you progress so does the difficulty. Add ponds, curves, elevations, and obstructions that will test one’s shot creativity. Take hole 16, for example. The path bends left with a dip, but there is also a small log tunnel that creates a straight shot to the hole. From personal experience, if you’re going to “Shooter McGavin” your way through that shortcut, don’t be bashful with it. You don’t want your ball stuck in the tunnel, especially now that your friend knows exactly what not do and reminds you of the losing bet you made at the start of the game. The entire course is fit for every one of all ages and skill levels. Bring a friend, a date, even your family. It’s first come, first served, so no time to waste. Be prepared to fish your ball out the water. Trust me. ”
