Whether you’re hoping to find solitude on a postcard perfect beach or indulge in the many outdoor activities Kauai has to offer, the North Shore has an outstanding selection for both options. Pack your hiking boots and prepare to tackle some of the most scenic trails imaginable on Kauai’s stunning North Shore. Outdoors enthusiasts will enjoy hiking the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali Coast, a challenging 22 miles round trip. Those who aren’t up for the distance but still want to enjoy the views can hike just a short distance in, where you are already rewarded with sweeping coastline views. Hanakapi’ai Falls is also located along this trail and is an 8-mile round trip hike. Take a refreshing dip in the cold waters at the bottom of the stunning 300-foot falls before making the challenging trek back to the parking area. The charming town of Hanalei offers a host of options to get active in the water. Take a surfing lesson at Hanalei Bay, where the gently rolling waves are close to shore and are ideal for beginners. Stand up paddleboarding is a popular sport in the islands, which you can enjoy along the North Shore’s calm beaches or down the tranquil Hanalei River.
Be sure to add some relaxing activities to your agenda as well, as there are plenty of ways to pamper yourself on Kauai’s luxurious North Shore. Treat yourself to dinner or a spa day at the upscale Princeville Resort, or browse the surf shops and boutiques in charming Hanalei town. During winter months, enjoy whale watching from a distance on the shoreline or take one of the many whale watching boat tours that leave from the North Shore town of Hanalei. The great thing about the North Shore is that there are so many activities and beaches within a short distance, making it easy to enjoy your vacation without wasting time in the car. From the North Shore, you can conveniently visit two gorgeous botanical gardens, take a brief drive to the Kilauea light house, board a dinner cruise, or just enjoy life’s slower pace while sunning yourself on one of Kauai’s many uncrowded and unspoiled beaches.
