North side of Kauai Hawaii

Kauai, Hawaii is awesome.

For me it was one of those places you think you would like to go and think you never will. I still can’t believe we got to go. Hopefully we can go back when the kids are a little older. There are few things families can participate in when kids are as young as ours were during our visit.

I really loved the fact that we were in a tropical environment in the middle of winter and we were still in America.

Here is an overlook near our hotel, the Bali Hai.

Anini Beach

This was Anini Beach. You can tent camp here and there were a lot of people camping when we visited. There is not a lifeguard at Anini Beach, but it is considered to be one of the safest beaches on Kauai’s North Shore during the summer months, because of the protective coral reef. Anini has the longest and widest fringing reef in all of the Hawaiian Islands. We did snorkel here, but to be honest, it was not that good. We found much better snorkeling in other parts of the island.

Tunnels Beach

Tunnels Beach on the north side. The beach was nice, but a little cold. There was a huge cave that we walked through. According to my research Tunnels is a fun surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing beach, although there was none of this going on when we visited.

Lava tubes form the many underwater caverns give Tunnels it’s name as well as an interesting underwater world to explore. We didn’t snorkel here, but apparently it’s amazing.

Hanalei Beach

Hanalei beach on the north side. This area was not as warm as some other parts of the island. Only 70 degrees in December! To us this was plenty warm. I read online that the surfing is really good here, but when we visited there were no surfers.
