5 Days In Kauai itinerary

Day 5: Relax on North Shore Beaches

The last day of this Kauai itinerary is a relaxing affair. We’ll take advantage of the north shore’s stunning beauty and pristine beaches to unwind and recharge before heading back home or to the next island.

Morning in Hanalei

It’s back to the charming seaside village of Hanalei for a healthy breakfast at the Aloha Juice Bar. The wait might be long, but the acai bowls and fruit smoothies are the best I had in Hawaii.

If it’s Saturday, do not miss the Hanalei Farmers Market – the best farmers market on Kauai’s north shore (9:00-noon). To the backdrop of taro fields and the lush emerald mountains, this market revolves mostly around food and fresh produce (though a few overpriced crafts are on sale). Check out the various stalls, grab an ice-cold coconut, and maybe even discover some herbal medicine to make you feel good (taste some noni juice).

Adjacent to the market is the picturesque Hale Halawai church and mission house. Feel free to step inside and turn back the wheels of time to the missionary era of Kauai.
