Nice pictures but water looked murky

Nice views of the ocean and the mountains. The water looked sorta dirty so I would just hang out on beach and not go in water.

This is a must when you go to Hanalei. You have to go walk the historic pier and if you have the time walk around the bay. Go to Chicken in a Barrel or L&L BBQ in Hanalei, take your food with you the pier and eat as the sun goes down. Awesome, cheap dinner with a sunset.

This lovely beach is a must see in Hanalei. Good beach for swimming. Good beach for children. Don't forget the sunscreen.

This is a lovely pier with nice views and a great photo opportunity! The water is so clear, and walking all the way out to the end to look down from above will give you a sense of the sea life below!

A piece of history that was recently rebuilt. It adds a nice touch to the beach. Even though signs say otherwise, many people were using it an a dive/jumping spot.

Such a pretty spot to lookout at the ocean views. What's not to like about Kauai? There were several families picnicking and swimming. We certainly enjoyed taking photographs of the sights.

We have visited the Hanalei Pier many times and it can reflect the many moods of of Hanalei from pounding waves to gentle surfing. It is busy over the Xmas holidays but the local guys have fun showing off how many ways they can get into the water.

We had great weather on our drive up to the north end of Kauai. While we had been to Hanalei many times, we never stopped to see the view from the pier. This time we decided to do so and was pleasantly surprised. The beach is nice and could be a destination but this trip was not a beach trip... More
