Nestled in Kaua’i Island, one of Hawaii’s oldest islands, is a 230-acre (93-hectare) stretch of paradise called Hāʻena State Park. The park is often referred to as the “end of the road” because it is located at the terminus of the Kuhio Highway, which is the major thoroughfare between the north and east shores of Kaua’i Island.
Swim in the turquoise waters at Ke’e Beach. Protected from large waves by reefs, the lagoon is ideal for snorkeling and the protected cove provides the perfect setting for picnicking, fishing and sunbathing. Hāʻena is also famous for its wet caves, which are fed by freshwater springs. Legend has it that Pele, Hawaii’s volcano goddess, dug the caves in her quest to find a new home, but finding only water, she abandoned the site.
If you are feeling active, walk the Kalalau Trail that starts in Hāʻena. This 11-mile (18-kilometer) hike takes you past cliffs and waterfalls and through lush valleys along the Nā Pali Coast. The trail is quite strenuous and if you choose to make the round trip, it is recommended to obtain a camping permit and stop overnight at Hanakoa or Kalalau Beach. For an easier pace, you can opt to walk the first quarter of the hike, which brings you to Hanakapi’ai Beach, a popular tourist attraction. Admire its beautiful scenery but beware its dangerous rip currents and high surf.
Hāʻena is an hour’s drive from Lihue. Lihue Airport, the main airport on Kaua’i Island, offers flights to Hawaii’s other islands as well as mainland United States. Hāʻena is 5 miles (8 kilometers) west of Hanalei, a beautiful crescent-shaped beach that features in several famous films, including South Pacific.
Hāʻena State Park offers many amenities for a day of hiking and picnicking, including restrooms, outdoor showers, picnic tables and drinking water. Admission to the park is free but it is best to arrive early, because parking spaces are limited. You can enjoy the park every day during daylight hours.
Since there is just a handful of Expedia hotels in Haena and its immediate surroundings, you ought to book ahead if you plan on staying locally.

The property felt upscale and elegant. Wonderful experience!
Clean, on time and friendly. Very helpful staff, just a phone call away. Beautiful place
Quaint setting. Beautiful property, made us feel like we were being catered to. You can't beat the personalization that we felt in comparison to big hotel chains. Wish we had more time here. Beach access right out our door. Cottage and history of the plantation was very interesting. Mango season ...
WE liked the amenities, location, and staff.We really enjoyed going to the beach , we renjoyed the presentation given about activities clients could register for, and the poolside program in the evening
Our two bedroom property was very spacious and was well located. We enjoyed our stay despite the lack of AC. Had we booked a one bedroom we may have had a bad time due to the lack of AC in a much smaller space. We would not have known this if we didn’t read all of the reviews.
Overall this was enjoyable stay and a good property. The staff was friendly and very helpful when I had an issue arise. The condo was very good size. The king size bed was very comfortable. Honestly, nothing really stood out good or bad during my stay, it was just very comfortable and enjoyable ...
