How to Play in Hanalei Bay

The salty waters of Kauai's Hanalei Bay provide the ultimate playground for ocean activities. From surfing, to kayaking, to swimming, to SUPing, the ways to spend your day on or in the sea are endless.

Surfing

With multiple breaks within the confines of the Bay, there really is something for everyone here. Beginner and professional alike are guaranteed to find a surf spot to meet their needs. And if you have no experience at all, there are plenty of local pros around who offer private and group lessons. On the first Saturday of every month, Hanalei Surf Co. hosts a board swap in front of their shop, which is an awesome place to pick up a used board. The shop also offers board rentals of all shapes and sizes.

Kayaking

If interested in more of a relaxed way of experiencing the Bay, kayaking is a great option, especially in the summer. And with the ability to shoot up Hanalei River, your options of exploration expand. Kayaks can be launched anywhere along the shoreline. Rentals are available up the river at Kayak Hanalei with access to launch directly into the river which leads out to the sea.

Swimming

Swimming in the summer months of the Bay is a favorite pastime for many ocean enthusiasts. With a radius spanning 2 miles, swimming from the pier to Waikokos offers an ideal workout for the summer heat. Goggles or a mask are recommended and some even prefer to wear fins and a snorkel.

SUPing

Stand Up Paddle Surfing In Hawaii

In the last 10 years, Stand Up Paddle Boarding has become quite the phenomenon. It allows those who don't want to be submerged in the water, to still have an aquatic experience. As well, it gives those that decide to catch waves on them, an advantage due to the oversized board and extended paddle. SUPs too, are popular up the river. Hanalei Surfing Adventures provides delivery if in need of a stand up board rental.

Make This Dream Your Reality

While all of this is fantastic fun, what could make it even better is the ability to step out of your front door to the sandy shores of Hanalei Bay. Imagine waking up for a morning swim workout before you head off to work. Then coming home to grab your surfboard and catching some waves while the sun sets on your back. Sounds like a fantasy but could, in fact, be a reality if you lived at 5514 Weke Rd.

With 2 separate contemporary homes on this beachfront lot, luxury and the quintessential island lifestyle are what come together here at Hanalei Bay Villa.

Both houses total 5BD/5.5BA on over a 1/4 acre of oceanfront property. With only 59 houses lining the Bay, the opportunity to call yourself an owner of one of them is limited to an elite few.

And with the current sale price for Bay front homes ranging between $8.5M-$45M, Hanalei Bay Villa's price of $10M makes it one of the most competitive in the market.
