Because of this surfers from all over arrive in Kauai for great surfing and big waves. In fact, Hanalei Bay is one of the best surfing locations on all of the Hawaiian Islands. It’s not an easy place to surf and only experts you surf here. Other Kauai locations that offer great surfing include Cannons, Kalihiwai, Kalapaki, Infinities, and Kealia.
