Travel Tips for Hanalei

Shave Ice

by Hopkid

Shave (not shaved) ice is a tasty Hawaiian treat which is great anytime because it's always hot and shave ice is, well, always cold. Shave ice differs from a sno-cone in that the ice is shaved very finely so it's like biting into flakes of snow rather than a hardened ball of crushed ice. One orders sweet liquid syrups to top the shave ice, similar to sno-cones, but since we're in Hawaii you can choose from a number of tropical flavors including mango, guava, lilikoi (passion fruit) and pineapple. You can also get ice cream or sweet red azuki beans on the bottom. It's a great treat on a hot day!

Shave Ice Paradise is in the Hanalei Center on the east side of the building with Java Kai.

Farmer's Market in Paradise

by Etoile2B

As we continued our journey through Hanalei we stumbled upon a crowd of people lined up waiting for the opening of the Farmer’s Market. We couldn’t resist joining them. I love a good Farmer’s Market. This one didn’t disappoint. Though on the small side, the market features vendors selling everything from fresh flowers to produce to baked goods. I picked up some cookies and homemade pumpkin coconut bread from one vendor and was in heaven. If you’re camping in the area this is a great place to pick up some provisions. There is a nice beach and campground across the highway. I must say that this is one of the most beautiful farmer’s market’s I have ever been to because of the amazing natural backdrop behind the market.

Old-Time Feel of Rural Hawaii

by Hopkid

"Where time stands still on Kauai"

The last town on the Kuhio Highway is Hanalei on the North Shore of Kauai. Here the visitor will find charming wood buildings, many in the Hawaii plantation style, mostly one-store tall. Hanalei has a small collection of shops, restaurants, a post office, school, and the historic Wai'oli Hui'ia Church. There are no hotels so the main drag in Hanalei, all two blocks of it, doesn't get inundated with tourists like in Waikiki. At least not during April or September, the months that I've visited. Most day-trippers drive over from nearby Princeville, Kapa'a, and the resorts on the South Shore in Poipu. Visitors wishing to stay in the area can rent homes in town or further west on the Kuhio Highway in Wainiha or Haena.

One can't help but fall into a relaxed state while strolling around the small town center, browsing the shops, eating al fresco at one of the restaurants, and just reveling in the fine weather and the sight of tall palm trees and the mountains to the south and the sunset on Hanalei Bay and the municipal pier. So visit, grab a coffee, smoothie, or shave ice, grab a seat outside the Hanalei Center, an old school house that now contains shops and an eatery, and soak in the relaxing atmosphere of the North Shore.

This is the main drag, Kuhio Highway, through Hanalei

"Not too much a secret, but still - quite private"

Sealodge beach has always been one of my favorites...

It's not too much of a hike down to get to it (for the average hiker) - and for some unknown reason: very few people come down there....?????

Not only is the hike down beautiful, but the beach, itself, is just incredibly relaxing....

Although it's mostly reef here, you can still cool off in those little sandy patches.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!! Don't walk on the reef!!!! The coral takes 100's of years to become what it is today, and with only one step of your foot: you've destroyed it within a blink of an eye.

I know it's hard... sometimes you just can't help but have to get footing on the reef now and then... Just asking to please try your best to be careful!

"Hanalei's "Green Church""

Everyone stops to take a picture of this church... and i am sure if you did a search on KAUAI, you'll find FAR better photos of it than THIS one - HAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Either way... although I am not a church-goer, I just could help but stop and take a picture of it myself.

"The Napali coast - OFCOURSE"

Well... this is CERTAINLY a must see. But, you cannot see it by road. The road stops at Kee beach in Heana. From there on, you have to go by foot. But, even then: you can only hike 11 miles (HARD MILES - ONLY RECOMMENDED FOR EXPERT HIKERS) - and from there on: you can either swim and play "shark bait", take a kayak, or just take the easy route: Take one of the boat tours of the Napali.

BUT: DO atleast TRY to hike the first bit of the Napali trail. Every step is worth it. TRUST me on this one.

"Even the jail doesn't look too bad, eh?"

Alright, ofcourse I MUST share a photo of our local jail...

The Kauai Community Correctional Facility comes with mountain views (as shown in the photo) and on the opposite side: a prime of the golfcourse.

Worse comes to worse: IF you do land yourself into trouble and I am unable to assist you, this would be the "worst case scenario accomodations" for your stay here on Kauai.

Hey... it beats Chicago. (no offense!)

"Horizon to horizon of isolation"

If you just can't get enough and MUST and absolutely MUST get away from the rain and are INTENT on getting some SERIOUS sunbathing in and do not want to be distrubed: Drive to the west side and go to Barking Sands (PMRF - Pacific Missile Range).

Miles and miles of beach, hardly a spot of shade, and USUALLY sunny.

Bring your ID and check with PMRF prior to taking the trip over there to make sure they are allowing public to enter. (They sometimes close the base down during missile testing and all that "fun" stuff)
