No parking, murky water, and dangerous surf add up to a less than ideal beach.

• Type: Murky Water • Sand Type: Regular

Wainiha Bay Beach is located at the end of the Wainiha River, where that river empties into the ocean and so the water here tends to be very murky (remember, sharks like murky water as we talk about in Shark Attacks In Hawaii). On top of that, the surf here is pretty dangerous all year round so it's not a place we recommend swimming.

Since the parking situation here is virtually non-existent, it's probably not worth your time at all. We suggest that you just skip it altogether.

If you do go you'll certainly enjoy some lovely views and more than likely have the entire beach to yourself which is sort of fun but other than relaxing in the sand or doing a little beachcombing there isn't much for you here.
