Dramatic cliffs. Lush golf courses. A charming town. North Shore Kauai is worth the trip.
The “Napali Coast” is a jaw-dropping 17-mile coastline of high green cliffs. You have to see the azure of the ocean, juxtaposed with 3000-foot tall cliffs, to truly believe its magnificence.
Venture into Princeville for a more understated experience. Here, you will find iconic golf courses with amazing views. In Hanalei town, you can connect with the locals, stroll botanical gardens, browse galleries and learn about Kauai’s past at Waioli Mission House.
Make Napali Coast State Park your playground. Kayak, snorkel, and sail, all while enjoying views of waterfalls and the Kalalau Valley.
Princeville, a small resort community in the North Shore of Kauai, is an excellent place to golf in the afternoon and sail into the sunset in the evening.
Roam taro fields in Hanalei (when you book a farm tour), then venture to the center of town for locally made wood carvings, galleries and appetizing bites.
Save your souvenir purchases for Hanalei. It has adorable shops where you can buy locally made clothing, jams, wood carvings and artisanal snacks.
Be patient while driving in North Shore, Kauai. Its one main road, Kuhio Highway, is very curvy. Give yourself ample time to get to your destination as you might run into a bit of traffic.
Stop for lunch at a food truck in Hanalei. There are so many serving delectable treats like poke, taro fries, freshly-squeezed dragon fruit juice and so much more.
Seasoned kayakers can go for gold by embarking on an epic 17 mile journey around the Napali coast. There, you will see dolphins, turtles and monk seals while you kayak through Kalalau valley and a volcanic sea cave.
For a deluxe coastal experience, sail around the Napali coast on a golden sun-lit evening and encounter flying fish, dolphins and humpback whales (December - April).
Book a helicopter tour to see the parts of the Napali coast and Waimea Canyon that are inaccessible by foot. See deep ravines and dramatically high cliffs “drop” into the ocean.
