The North Shore of Kauai is home to distinguished historical sites, unique artistry, and relaxing beaches. The diversity of attractions and activities offered by this region provides entertainment for all ages.
Kauai's shores offer ample opportunities for guests to tour spectacular sites and engage in diverse activities. When visiting Kauai's North Shore, be sure to visit the charming town of Hanalei, check out the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse, and relax on tranquil Anini Beach.
Stretching over two miles, Hanalei Bay Beach can accommodate many visitors without feeling crowded. Sun bathers on the sandy shore are surrounded by beautiful scenery set against a backdrop of tropical mountains. Hanalei Bay is flanked at either end by two coral reefs.
The Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse was built in 1913 to light the way for traveling ships. Guests who are feeling adventurous may tour the lighthouse by climbing up the stairs as far as the watch room.
Waioli Mission House is one of the most famous sites in Hanalei Town and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Guests experience a glimpse of missionary life from 1837, complete with historically accurate features such as lava rock chimneys and fine koa furniture.
Anini Beach is known as one of the most protected beaches in Kauai, thanks in part to the two-mile-long fringed reef that runs the length of Anini Beach. Hawaii's longest reef, it creates an ideal, calm spot for children to swim and play in the water.
