Hāʻena Beach Park

Where: North Shore, Kauaʻi

With Mount Makana (Bali Hai) looming above and lush tropical jungles just beyond the sand, Hāʻena Beach is a picturesque backdrop for relaxing on the beach or taking sunset photos. During winter and spring, water conditions can become hazardous due to pounding shorebreaks and powerful rip currents. In summer, the water is much calmer, making it a great place for snorkeling. While visiting, be sure to check out the Maniniholo dry cave just across the street.
