Hanalei is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauai County, Hawaii, United States. Visiting Na Pali Coast State Park and Tunnels Beach will get you outdoors. We've included these beaches for you: Hanalei Beach and Hanalei Bay. Go for a jaunt from Hanalei to Kapaa to see Kayaking & Canoeing about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Kalalau Trail, kick back and relax at Ke'e Beach, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and stop by Ching Young Village Shopping Center.

For more things to do, reviews, photos, and tourist information, use the Hanalei online sightseeing planner .

Yellowstone National Park to Hanalei is an approximately 13-hour combination of car, flight, and taxi. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Yellowstone National Park to Hanalei due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Yellowstone National Park in November, with highs in Hanalei at 81°F and lows at 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Poipu.
