Hanalei is a beach town located in the northernmost Hawaiian island of Kauai. It is surrounded by lots of forests, parks and reserves that you can trek through if you feel adventurous. The main draw of the town though is its crescent beach, which has pristine sands and clear waters. You can also visit the more secluded Lumahai Beach, or go north to the resorts. There aren’t many buses that go around the island, so renting a car at the airport is recommended. After a long day at the beach, you’ll need a place to stay, so we’ve selected the best Vrbo accommodations in Hanalei, Hawaii just for you.
