Hanalei Beach continues to be my favorite beach on the island. Just beautiful scenery all around ,with clear blue water on a nice long stretch of beach. This a great beach for families because the surf is decent but gentle, so it's a good place to learn surfing but at the same time the waves aren't as violent as other locations so the kids can swim and play in the water.

Spent the afternoon at Hanalei Beach by the pier. Not very crowded, water was warm and could walk out quite a ways. Would recommend.

Hanalei Beach can be the best beach of your dreams or a nightmare depending on weather and tourist influx. I have swum and paddled there in totally calm and clean conditions, and I've seen brown water and sharks after a big rain. It's a great place to learn how to surf and to go for a sunset picnic. Parking can be hard to find during peak tourist times.

We came here just to see the pier and get some photos since we swam near the hotel and went snorkeling most days. This seems to be a favorite spot for locals though so they know their island. I like the views from the beach with the pier included.
