ABOUT THE HAENA AREA

Accessible by a handful of one-lane bridges and framed by a backdrop of jagged cliffs, lush green jungles, illusive waterfalls, gorgeous white sand beaches, epic snorkeling, fabulous hiking trails, and breathtaking sunsets, Haena is the last ‘outpost’ on Kauai’s North Shore.

No High Rises Here

Haena is the perfect place to vacation if you simply want to get away from it all. Raw beauty, a slower pace and monstrous winter surf combine to give the north shore its “sought after” reputation.  It is a small, ocean front, residential community situated about 4 miles beyond Hanalei and is arguably one of THE most beautiful places on the planet.  You won’t see any high rise, timeshare resorts here, just a contrast of multi-million dollar beach homes and tin-roofed island shacks. The quaint and unconventional community of Haena serves as a focal point for many of the north shore’s popular attractions.

Ke’e Beach

Ke’e, was made famous as a movie location when Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward reunited in the movie “Thornbirds”.  Another of Kauai’s famous movie locations is the fictional island of “Bali Hai” from the 1958 movie “South Pacific”, which is actually Mount Makana, a pinnacle that rises above Ke`e Beach, at the end of the road on the North Shore and marks the beginning of the NaPali Coast.  Be sure to reserve your parking pass ahead of time online for Ke’e Beach.

The Napali Coast

Ke’e Beach in Haena marks the very end of the road and the beginning of the world famous Na Pali Coast and hiking trail which extends 11 rugged miles to Kalalau Beach. The NaPali Coast, is a time and weather sculpted coastline of secluded white sand beaches, sea caves, waterfalls and streams that empty into the blue pacific. During the summer months the NaPali Coast is enjoyed by visitors and locals alike whether it be hiking, kayaking or a guided NaPali Coast tour.

Culturally Significant

On a knoll above the boulders of Kee Beach stands a sacred altar of rocks. Ka Ulu O Laka, an ancient Hawaiian Heiau (temple) dedicated to Laka, the goddess of Hula. Still used today, Hawaii’s hula halau (schools) climb the rocks to this location to gift the sacred space with leis and hula. In Hawaiian myths, Lohiau, a handsome chief, danced here before the fire goddess Pele; their passion became Haena, which means “the heat.”

Great Snorkeling

The outer reef at Ke`e beach makes for protected swimming and snorkeling during the summer months. Caution is advised during the winter months due to large surf and rip currents.

Haena Beach Park

Just across the street from the Dry Cave is Haena Beach Park which is one of the most popular white sand beaches and boasts one of the best camp grounds on the island. Haena Beach Park offers bathroom and shower facilities and is the launching point for summer time kayak excursions down the NaPali Coast.

Botanical Gardens

The terraced gardens of Limahuli are located in a verdant tropical valley overlooking the ocean just minutes South of Haena Beach Park. The property includes a plantation-era garden, as well as invasive species that were introduced by modern man. Limahuli Stream, one of the last pristine waterways left in the Islands, provides a habitat for indigenous aquatic life.

Tunnels Beach

One of the most popular Haena attractions is Tunnels Beach, a haven for sun worshipers, snorkelers, scuba divers, kite surfers and windsurfers. The beach and reef are impressive however parking can be somewhat of a challenge and there are no public facilities here. Due to treacherous surf, caution is advised during the winter months.
