This is a beautiful crescent moon shaped bay that has been voted #1 beach in the world a few times. Its two miles of white sand beach with the Na Molo Kama mountain range hovering above you offering a gorgeous back drop. With all that space, even on a busy day you can literally go find your own spot on the beach somewhere with no one around. A walk out on the Hanalei Pier is a must do. In the summer months it is great for swimming, boogie boarding and stand up paddle, and in the winter months you are in the surf capitol of the world.
Entering the ocean anywhere along the Kauai coastline can be dangerous. Surf and ocean conditions change daily. Before entering the ocean check with a lifeguard or a current ocean safety report. To ensure safety swim only at lifeguarded beaches.
