Rated the number one tropical island beach and number one destination beach for vacations and honeymoons. Hanalei Bay Beach is not to be missed! Toward the Eastern side of the bay you will find the Hanalei Pier at the mouth of the Hanalei River. This section of beach fronts Black Pot Beach Park. Here you will find gentle waves great for families with small children and perfect for stand up paddle boarders. Look out to sea and on your far right, pretty far out, you will probably catch sight of surfers catching really big waves. Don’t worry – there is an outside reef that kills the power of the waves and protects the right-hand, Eastern corner of Hanalei Bay.
Take a walk along the white sands. The lush vegetation and incredible mountain views reward you along the way. You will find larger waves rolling onto shore as you walk West away from the pier. Take care when swimming any distance from the pier.
