Ringed by 50 miles of beautiful white sand beaches, Kauai is a beach-lover’s fantasy. Some of the top beaches are in Hanalei Colony Resort's frontyard.
The island of Kauai is blessed with more beaches per mile than any of the other Hawaiian Islands. The beaches of Ha’ena, where Hanalei Colony is located, are incomparable, and each has its own personality. Whether for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, or simply sunbathing, you’ll find just the perfect Kauai beach for your purpose. Ha’ena beaches are plentiful and rarely crowded, although during the winter months you might find yourself sharing the ocean with the humpback whales that frolic in the warm waters offshore.
Hanalei Colony rests on a long stretch of beach that extends more than two miles--wonderful for sandy strolls and beachcombing. We are a stunning Kauai beach resort. Nearby are some of the best swimming and snorkeling beaches on the island – Makua (fondly known as “Tunnels” beach) and lovely crescent-shaped Ke’e at the end of the road on the north shore. The resort looks out toward scenic Hanalei Bay, featuring a two-mile curve of beach named “Best Beach in America” in the 2009 top ten list by Dr. Beach. And portions of the movie “South Pacific” were filmed at beautiful Lumahai Beach, just 5 minutes from Hanalei Colony.
Be careful in the surf, wear sunscreen, and enjoy Kauai beaches, the best in all of Hawaii!
