Hanalei is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauai County, Hawaii, United States. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kalalau Trail and Dolphin & Whale Watching.

Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape at Queen's Bath, admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls, kick back and relax at Anini Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church.
