Hanalei Town

North Kauai

Hanalei is a leisurely little town situated on a beautiful crescent-shaped bay. The town is about as eclectic as it gets, everyone from surfer dudes to new-age folks call this place home. You can too, just look for the great deals on Hanalei Bay house rentals. To get to Hanalei after visiting the lookout at mile marker 0, you'll head west on Highway 560 and travel down into the valley on a graded road. At the bottom of the road is a one-lane rickety looking bridge. Don't let appearances fool you, it has been around for many years and is quite safe. It does, however, have a 15-ton weight limit. Since the bridge is one-lane, drivers must use bridge etiquette - all vehicles on one side cross together and then all vehicles on the other side cross.
