Coming Home to Hanalei
Admit it, the name sounds magical and it already has you conjuring scenes of misty volcanic mountains and romantic strolls along flawless beaches. Go ahead and let your imagination wander, because your upcoming trip to Hanalei will prove once and for all that it really is possible to leave reality behind.
Green and vibrant begin the long list of words that will pop into your head as soon as you step into this attractive area of northern Kauai. Taro fields stretch far and wide (this is Hawaii’s number one spot for the production of this integral product), bubbling waterfalls will surprise you during the hikes you’re sure to take, and Hanalei Beach Park is appropriately white, sandy and inviting. Being that the conditions are perfect for swimming, boogie boarding and having a picnic lunch, you’ll naturally feel taken into an embrace by the shoreline’s crescent shape.
Heading to town for a casual dinner, perusing the unique shops and pulling off the road at Mile Marker #0 for the view of a lifetime are all ways to round out a picture-perfect day, as is returning to your vacation home nestled in the lush rainforest. Ferns, orchids, palm trees and flowering ginger have a way of blocking out thoughts of work and stress, so consider this another reason to hide away in Kauai’s uppermost reaches.
One more thing, choosing Hanalei doesn’t mean missing out on the island’s other points of interest. Take the time to explore The Garden Isle to truly appreciate the distance you’ve come, and rest assured that you’ve made a smart choice by coming home to Hanalei.
