Of all the incredible Kauai beaches there is one that stands out as the crowning jewel of them all. It is of course, Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s north shore.

Hanalei Bay is Kauai’s largest crescent shaped sandy beach. In the summer time Hanalei is very calm with little surf activity, as is the case with most of Kauai’s northern beaches at this time of year. In the wintertime Hanalei beach is usually pounded by big powerful ocean swells. Some of the Kauai’s best surf spots on are found along this beach.

Hanalei beach is a Kauai beach famous for a great many things. It is a Hawaii beach that has been immortalized in song, legend and myth. It was revered by the Hawaiian Alii (kings) years ago and is revered by many today. There was even buried treasure found off of its pristine sandy shores. King Kamehameha II sunken royal ship had been found near the pine trees beach area of Hanalei Bay.

On the other side of the famous Kauai beach is the “black pot” area of the beach. There is an old pier that goes a short way out from the beach and is a popular spot for the local youth to jump off of. Near that is a small river that lets out into one of the most famous waves in Hawaii, aptly called Hanalei Bay. Towards the middle area of the bay, much of the white sand collects and the beach tends to be a little wider there. This area is called “pine trees”. Continuing to the northern end of this beloved Kauai beach area a few small streams then finally a area called “Waikokos Beach” This famous Kauai beach offers so much to explore that you really need a full day to beach comb and swim.
