Hanalei Bay

Kauai, Hawaii

This scenic crescent loves the camera. It’s the largest bay -- and one of the most photographed -- on Kauai Island’s north shore. While it was once an agricultural post (surrounding wetlands were ideal for growing taro and rice), today it’s a popular destination for intrepid surfers and sun-seeking vacationers. Winter waves are ideal for boarding experts, while 2 miles of sandy coastline mean there are plenty of beaches to choose from. The wide Waioli Beach Park, for example, has picnic tables, restrooms and lots of shady spots for the kiddos.
