Kauai’s North Shore

Kauai’s Northshore is known for its lush mountainsides, tropical rains, and gigantic winter surf. It is 51.7 miles from Poipu Beach Park to Haena State Park. Make sure you get a permit to hike all or part of the Kalalau Trail, explore historic Hanalei (45 miles from Poipu), and visit some of the world’s most beautiful beaches where snorkeling is superb in the summertime.
