Kauai in Technicolor
Pack a picnic and enjoy the show
(page 4 of 5)
On Kauai’s North Shore, Hanalei Bay is celebrated for its surf, beautiful beaches, moonlit nights and is an idyllic place for watching Hawaiian sunsets. The renowned half moon bay is quite expansive and the sunset always proves to be rewarding, regardless of where you are on the beach. Setting up near the pier or on the pier will give you a panoramic view to remember. The sun slowly sinking behind Mt. Makana, changing the color of the clouds, valleys and the bay is absolutely breathtaking. January through April can bring some rain to the North Shore beaches, so you might want to check the daily weather before heading out. Pack a picnic and enjoy the enchanting scenery—it’s one place on Kauai you won’t want to miss.
From Princeville, head north on Hwy 56 and turn right onto Aku Rd. Continue until reaching Weke Rd., where you will make a right at the junction to reach Hanalei Beach Park. To get to the pier, follow Weke until the road ends and you will see the parking lot.
