Waioli Beach Kauai

Waioli Beach Kauai

Waioli Beach Park is a distinct section of the beach at Hanalei Bay known for its Ironwood trees, green grass and surf culture. Also known as Pine Trees Beach, this is where Andy Irons and his brother learned to surf, and the beach continues to attract the local surfer crowd. Tributes to the late Andy Irons can be found at the beach, including a mural on the beach’s facilities.

With its park-like setting and plenty of shade, Waioli Beach is a favorite local hangout. There are picnic tables, benches and volleyball courts at the park, along with restrooms, lifeguards and parking. The waves are generally larger at Waioli Beach Park than other parts of the beach at Hanalei Bay. Intermediate to experienced surfers will appreciate the waves at Waioli Beach, especially in the winter months, while beginners should stick to the area near the Hanalei Pier.

The beach is located in the middle of Hanalei Bay. To visit, you can stroll down the beach from the Hanalei Pier, or you can park at one of two parking lots. One parking lot is located at the end of Hee Road and a smaller parking lot is located at the end of Anae Road.
