Fans of Waimea Canyon might disagree. But there may be no vista on Kauai more photographed than Hanalei Valley on the island’s green north shore. Why? Access, for one thing. The best view of the valley is from a popular lookout conveniently located on Highway 560, just before you descend into the valley and onward to Hanalei town. The other reason, of course, is Hanalei Valley’s rustic beauty—though not pristine, its wide floor is filled with picturesque taro farms cut by the windy Hanalei River. The valley is also home to the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, a safe haven for endangered waterbirds, waterlife and plantlife.
