Let’s Get Wanderlust | Hanalei Bay

#hanaleipier | @jjohnson_photography | The Discoverer

The soul of Kaua’i, the Garden Island of Hawaii, lies along its northern shore, where towering green mountains meet the laughing smile of the bay. With nearly two miles of beach, and immediate access to the vast and enchanting Nā Pali Coast State Park, Hanalei Bay seamlessly joins the best parts of Hawaii in one magical place.

The best part of Hanalei Bay is its 2-mile stretch of beach, which offers all your favorite beach activities. Take a stroll down the insta-worthy pier, go camping at Hanalei Beach Park or recreate that George Clooney scene from The Descendents.

Looking for a quieter spot to relax? Try Donkey Beach just up the road for a more secluded experience.

Just a few minutes away from Hanalei Bay is a majestic swatch of nature waiting to be explored. Nā Pali Coast State Park stretches out over 6,175 acres, and is home to some of the most beautiful sights in the world. Don’t miss Kalalau Trail, an 11-mile hike that includes picturesque waterfalls and dizzying views. And yes, scenes from Jurassic Park were filmed here. But don’t worry, the dinosaurs died out a long time ago. Right?

Of the numerous water-based activities to participate in Hanalei Bay, the area is most well known for its surfing. Over the years, many world-champion surfers have made Hanalei Bay their home. The waves range from beginner to advanced depending on which part of the beach you are. Advanced surfers should check out Pine Trees Beach aka Waioli, a world-famous surf area, where you can test your skills.

Grab a paddle and a life jacket and kayak down the Wailua river. Snake your way through tropical forests and underneath waterfalls. If you’re lucky, your guide might even treat you to an impromptu ukelele concert.

  1. Diana, I am of Hawaiian heritage and although I like in MN, My family and I travel to Hawaii on an annual basis. My mom grew up in Kapaa, KA, HI and Hanalei was a constant destination whenever we traveled there. I am making up a collage of my favorite places and although I have hundreds of pictures, they don’t do these locations justice. You have captured the true essence of Hanalei Bay and I was hoping I could purchase a .jpeg of #hanaleipier as shown above. Are your photos for sale?
