The tropical beauty of Hanalei provides the perfect backdrop for exploring and adventure, both on The North Shore and the rest of the island. Discover some of what we love so much about Kauai and the especially the North Shore. Here are some of my suggestions and links to other business websites.

Hiking

Kauai is a fabulous place to hike. The North Shore has the Waikoa Loop Trail which is relatively new & the iconic Na Pali Coast Trail, which is in this photo of myself with my dogs and friend Liz. The East side has the Sleeping Giant trails as well as others into waterfall basins and cold streams. Kokee has fabulous trails for views. This web site I`m refeerrring you to has a good list.
