Tired of the tourists and families in Poipu? Take the drive to Hanalei. Totally worth it. Great sand, perfect waves, and much less crowded.

Beautiful beach surrounded by mountains. There are waves that are great for boogie boarding or learning to surf, as well as swimming & sunbathing.

What a beach! The pier is a great place to sit and observe all the goings on without getting sand all over you! lol. The views are to die for. At one end the river flows into the sea and some of the little alcoves are magical. As for the swimming, everybody seems to scare you to death about it. I saw little local kids having the time of their life in the waves. As with all swimming, common sense is the answer. Enjoy the surf and stop worrying folks!

Hanalei beach at sunset on a beautiful clear evening with a gentle breeze is divine. People are hanging out, surfers are loving the surf, kids are having fun, a few guitar players are strumming a tune.

When the surf is high...its not so safe to swim. Check with the life guard where s/he suggests is best to swim.

Just go here. You will not regret it. Probably the most beautiful beach I've ever seen in that includes Maui, Oahu, Thailand, and Nova Scotia, which have some pretty swell beaches too. The pier is very cool, and you need to take a picture.
