Hanalei is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauai County, Hawaii, United States. Step off the beaten path and head to Hanalei Bay and Ke'e Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Pali Ke Kua Beach (Hideaway s Beach) and Anini Beach. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Hanakapiai Falls, identify plant and animal life at Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, get great views at Hanalei Valley Lookout, and kick back and relax at Tunnels Beach.
