Hanalei is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauai County, Hawaii, United States. Popular historic sites such as Wai`oli Hui`ia Church and Kauai's Hindu Monastery are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Hanalei Beach. Step out of Hanalei with an excursion to Waimea Canyon State Park in Waimea--about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Na Pali Coast State Park, kick back and relax at Tunnels Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church.

For other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Hanalei online trip itinerary maker .
