About Hanalei Kauai

Hanalei is a quiet oasis on the jungle island of Kauai. Hanalei is located on the North Shore of Kauai, and is rich in island history. Visitors and residents alike enjoy stepping back in time as they visit the Waioli Mission House and Church, which was built in 1837 in order to house the Christian missionaries who arrived on the island. This home tells the story of how Christianity came to the Hawaiian Islands, and how modern Kauai became what it is today. Hanalei also is known for its art galleries. The art shops in Hanalei consist of hand-made creations as well as specialty art, and residents love decorating their homes with these local items.

While a Hanalei beach house will afford any resident with stunning views of luscious green jungles and the crystal blue ocean, Hanalei is perhaps best known for the taro fields. These fields coat the area like a blanket of green velvet. The taro plants are used to make the famous Hawaiian dish poi. Visitors and local residents enjoy heading to the Kauai luau dinners for a special occasion, and nearly anyone who dines at one of these feasts will enjoy poi made from Hanalei taro plants.

Perhaps one of the best aspects of Hanalei is the local meeting spot, the Hanalei Pier. This historic pier was built in 1892, and is still the place where everyone who lives in Hanalei goes to hang out together. Fishing and swimming are two popular pier activities, while others who visit this area simply enjoy playing music and dancing with friends. Hanalei presents buyers with the opportunity to become part of a truly tropical community.
