Destination guide

Hollywood loves Hanalei Bay

Famous as the backdrop to the movie South Pacific, Hanalei Bay has been one of Hollywood's go-to locations in Hawaii since the 1940s. Curving around Kauai's northern reaches, this lush, palm-lined bay is also the start of the dazzling Napali Coast. Get your Hawaiian adventure off to a great start by booking a Hanalei Bay vacation rental with movie star views. Doze in a hammock slung between the palms, take a helicopter flight over the Jurassic-style Napali Coast, or pad around the Na Aina Kau Botanical Gardens - Hanalei Bay makes for a star-studded vacation.

Things to do

Lei down some memories in Hanalei Bay

There's more to life on Kauai than just bumming about on the beach. Budding botanists will enjoy a daytrip to Limahuli Garden and Preserve, one of Hawaii's 5 National Tropical Botanical Gardens. Located inland from Ha'ena State Park, it's also known as Bali Hai after its appearance in South Pacific. The gardens are crammed with native Polynesian plants, including banana and breadfruit trees, paper mulberry, and taro terraces. As the sun starts to dip, head up to Hanalei Valley lookout for sunset, one of the most beautiful (and photographed) spots on the island.


Say Aloha to treasure island bliss

It's all about beach life in Hawaii. Known as the Garden Island, Kauai is renowned for its lush interior, craggy coastline, and some of the best beaches in America. Banked by rugged mountains and taro fields, the half moon-shaped Hanalei Bay is regarded as one of the finest beaches on Kuaui. Book a beachfront Hanalei vacation rental and have the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean lapping at your feet. Book a dolphin or whale watching excursion, or if you're feeling energetic, try one of the classic Hawaiian sports, like paddleboarding or surfing.


Things are hotting up in Hanalei Bay

Like the rest of Hawaii, Kauai is blessed with year-round sunshine, making it a great destination for any season. As a tropical island, it can still very humid, and of course, the island's lush foliage doesn't grow without a decent amount of rainfall. The driest months are between April and September, when Hanalei vacation rentals get booked up in advance. For many, the best time to visit Kauai is either spring or fall, especially between September and November, when the beaches are quiet but the weather is a stable and sunny 80 degrees.
