Lovely Hāʻena’s descriptors include lush, tropical and ancient to its core. The sleepy little beach neighborhood stands tall at the end of the road on the north shore of Kaua'i. Rushing water, wind, giant cliffs and Mount Makana remind all who come of this community’s elevated reverence for its environment and archaeology. Vast stretches of golden beaches await as does Limahuli Gardens, a sister garden to Po'ipū’s National Tropical Botanical Garden. Just one roadside store serves everyone’s basic needs and homes tend to be classic beach houses in a variation of colors reflecting this community’s friendly character. Rentals and for sale properties are normally in limited supply.
