Hanalei Valley on the north shore of Kauai is one of the most attractive places on the entire island. The backdrop of beautiful mountains with waterfalls tumbling down the walls is a beautiful stage for the sleepy town of Hanalei. The most scenic view is here at Hanalei Valley Overlook, which peers over the taro fields of Hanalei Valley below. The valley is a designated Wildlife Sanctuary rich in native water birds including the Hawaiian coot, duck and stilt. The dramatic patchwork of neat taro farms bisected by the wide Hanalei River make this one of Hawaii's loveliest sights. The fertile soils of Hanalei Valley have been planted with taro since perhaps as far back as AD 700.
