Hanalei Beach Park, also known as Black Pot Beach, is located on the northeast end of Hanalei Bay and is very popular with locals and campers. On the weekends this place is likely to be packed. With that in mind, you're far better off coming here during the week.

It does have some good facilities but the swimming conditions here aren't likely to be very good since the Hanalei River empties into the ocean here which makes for murky water. Remember, murky water isn't the best to swim in and sharks also enjoy murky waters (see Shark Attacks In Hawaii).

If you move further west along the bay you'll be at Hanalei Pavilion Beach Park which is going to be better since it's further away from the murky river water.

The iconic Hanalei Pier is located here at Hanalei Beach Park as well so bring a camera to get some fun photos of that.

Hanalei Beach has been the backdrop to many movies such as Beachhead, Miss Sadie Thompson, South Pacific, and The Descendants. For more on that check out Popular Movies & TV Shows Filmed In Hawaii.
