Located on Kauai’s north shore just past the luxury resort area of Princeville is the magnificent Hanalei, a tiny little town surrounded by endless natural beauty – from the crystalline turquoise waters of Hanalei Bay to the majestic mountains.

With a small one-lane bridge leading into town, and an unusual mix of shopping and dining options, the very small town – approximately 0.8 square miles – is full of old world charm. The town has a population of 450 and is home to stellar views of Kauai’s taro fields, various art galleries, and historic sites, as well as fresh air and the breathtaking Pacific Ocean.
