Hanalei Bay sits beneath 4,000-ft.-high green mountains and is a stretch of four beach parks connected in a crescent bay (which its name actually translates to). Accessible by car, it is about an hour's drive from the cruise port in Nawiliwili Harbor (Lihue). In winter months, this area is a popular destination for its strong surf, which, in the summer months, gives way to calmer waters more suited for swimmers. For nature lovers, there are coral reefs at either end of the bay and you can even spot waterfalls in the distance.
