Best Places to Catch a Sunset in Kauai

Imagine this: you’ve had the perfect day on your Kauai vacation. You spent hours at the beach — relaxing in the sand and swimming in the sea. You hiked a trail with views that took your breath away. You learned about the island’s history at a must-see cultural site. No matter what your dream day looks like, ending it with a vibrant sunset will be the icing on the cake. Here are five of the best places to catch a sunset in Kauai. 

Poipu Beach Park, Kauai’s South Shore

Poipu Beach is considered one of the top beaches in Hawaii. In fact, Travel Channel named it one of the top ten beaches in the state! Not only is this beach picturesque, it’s an ideal location for families. There are lifeguards on duty and the water is calm. Spend the day at Poipu, and stay to watch this pristine sunset behind this crescent-shaped beach.

Watch this Kauai sunset on our Poipu & Koloa Town Tour.

Hanalei Bay, Kauai’s North Shore

Some consider Hanalei Bay a magical spot for sunsets. Just ask anyone who’s taken the Shaka Guide North Shore Tour while visiting the island. This bay is nestled in the mountains with intertwining waterfalls running down.

You can walk out onto the dock to watch the sunset from the water or stay on the beach to take in the entire view of the sailboats in the bay, the dock, and the mountains!

Kalalau Lookout, Kauai’s North Shore

Take in the vastness of the Na Pali Coast at the Kalalau Lookout. This is an amazing viewpoint at any time of the day, but mix in the colors of sunset and this place becomes spectacular. You’ll watch as orange hues shine behind the emerald forests along the Na Pali Coast. 

Salt Pond Park, Kauai’s South Shore

The best time to catch the sunset at Salt Pond is during winter months when the sun moves from South to North. We recommend walking out to the eastern shore for the best view!

Shipwreck’s Beach, Kauai’s South Shore

From Shipwreck’s Beach, you’ll see a cliff jump where adventurous souls jump into the waves below. If you dare to jump, be very careful — it’s for experienced swimmers only and can be very dangerous because of the rocks and large waves. However, if you don’t want to jump, head to the cliff to watch the sunset. You’ll feel like you’re in the sky as you watch the sun setting in front of you. 

Whichever spot you choose to sit and watch the sunset, you won’t be disappointed!
