Kauai: Hanalei Bay Shocker

Jump to last reply

I had quite a shock when I went for my morning walk at Hanalei Bay. The beach had been ravaged by the onslaught of 20 – 25 foot waves. It’s completely strewn with driftwood, sea vegetation (including long, stringy things that must have been 4 – 6 feet long), and disgusting sludge—along almost the entire length of the beach.

I was there at high tide and in many areas the water was up to the vegetation, dangerously close to the houses. There was almost no beach in those spots. You can see from the photos how high the water came up at Hanalei Pier and Black Pot.

The beach was posted “no swimming” but lots of people were wading—especially in front of the lifeguard stand at the pavilion. The lifeguards weren’t stopping anyone; it seemed safe. In most areas the waves didn’t seem much different than normal. But the area where there are typically surfers had ENORMOUS waves—and no surfers (which speaks volumes).

I wonder if they’ll clean it up—or let nature take care of that. I’ve never seen anything like it!
