Beaches and Places to Go!

You will not want to miss these beaches!


Island of Kauai Info

Kauai, the oldest island of the Hawaiian Islands, is a place where worries vanish in the trade winds, warm saltwater laps the golden sands of Kauai’s Beaches and the rain-forests of Koke’e host earth’s rarest plants and birds. The tiny tropical island of Kaua’i has kept herself charmed, mysterious and unconquered. Here you will experience the secrets of The Garden Island as you dive into the beauty Kauai has to offer. From the moment you step off the plane the balmy trade winds will remind you, there is no place like the Garden Isle of Kauai. E Komo Mai…


Kauai SurfRider Foundation

If you are looking to spend some time giving back to the island of Kauai and its beauty, look up this organization. Each trip to Kauai I always spend some time cleaning up our beach that is on property. My way of giving back to the island.

Surfrider Kauai – joined by local community groups, Ohana and visitors – organizes regularly scheduled beach cleanups throughout the year. In 2020, we led 24 cleanups and together with our Net Patrol program, collected over 129,000 pounds of debris! Our strong, dedicated network of volunteers go out daily to clean the beaches. We pick up all plastic, nets, and trash from large stretches of beach – disposing it at the County landfill.


Pua Poa Beach

Pua Poa is located pretty much on our property. From the resort, you are only a 7-10 min walk to the shores of Hanalei Bay! You do not want to miss the sunsets from here. Grab a chair, your loved one and head to the water. There is no better place to be than Hanalei Bay Resort...

Hanalei Bay

The town of Hanalei is an amazing place. Have you ever wanted to step back into a 70's style surf town? Only a short 10 min drive from the resort, you will find one of the top ranked bodies of water in the world. There are coffee shops, food trucks, shaved ice, clothing shops and so much more. If you have the desire to go home with a small piece of Hanalei and Kauai, this is the place to find it. Please support the locals.

Makai Sunset Golf Tour

What Is The Sunset Tour?

The Sunset Golf Car Tour at Princeville Makai Golf Club is one of the most enjoyable, educational and truly stunning activities on the North Shore. The tour is a guided golf car tour of the golf course, flora and fauna that make up the North Shore of Kauai, intertwined with both cultural and geographical educational elements that will give you a greater understanding for the 'aina (land) and the moana (ocean).

Best of all, the final stop on the tour is truly one of the most stunning locations in the world to witness a sunset... our signature par 3, seventh hole on Princeville Makai that makes for the perfect viewing spot or instagramable moment.
