Hanamaulu bay (Kauai)

Characteristics

Description

Just 3 miles north of Nawiliwili is Hanamaulu Bay, an excellent anchorage in westerlies. With no nearby mountains, the winds blow steadily at about the same speed as out at sea.
The bay shoals gradually and predictably to a nice beach park with showers and picnic tables.

In westerly conditions, we anchored at a couple of different spots in about 3.5 meters of water. Each time, we found rocks on the first try, but got a confidence inspiring sandy set on the second.

We looked at the bay with trade winds and it looked plausible to find some shelter just west of the old warf, but the situation wasn't attractive.

There's no secure place to leave the dingy.

Noise from the airport was generally less than in Nawiliwili but still noticable.
