Exploring Kauai: How to Spend a Day in Hanalei, Hawaii

Processed with VSCOcam with c7 preset

The view from the Hanalei Colony Resort

On my recent trip to Kauai, I split my time between the Garden Island’s famed North Shore and the more touristy area of Poipu Beach. While Princeville is the most high-end resort area, I preferred the more relaxed, surfer vibe of Hanalei as my base. I stayed at the old school but recently redone Hanalei Colony Resort in Haena. It isn’t fancy, but it is as close to the beach as you can get with a reasonable price tag.

In addition to stunning landscapes, Kauai offers less cinematic charms. If you are looking for things to do on Kauai, here are some of my favorites, illustrated with GIFs.
