A great place to enjoy the beach and friends, Black Pot Beach Park fills up on the weekends with local families. They camp, picnic, barbecue. You can enjoy scenic views of the Halei rivermouth, the beach, pier, and Kauai waterfall lined mountains. Rent a surfboard or take a stand-up paddle board up the Halei River when the water is rough. Camping is available on weekends only and you’ll need a camping permit.
You’ll enjoy great surfing, including a beginners area on the west side of the pier where the waves are gentle during most of the summer. Access is easy, you can drive right up to the beach. Sunset are spectacular here and the Kauai waterfalls and mountains in the background make it even more dramatic. The kids will love the beach and playing in the water’s edge.
“We were told Black Pot Beach is the place to go in Halei Bay. Unfortutely (or fortutely?) it was 4th of July weekend, so the bay was packed with everyone on Kauai. Despite the crowds we enjoyed the main beach at night to watch the fireworks. Unlike other beaches on the island, here you have all the modern conveniences if you are looking for them – bathhouses, volleyball nets, kayak rentals, etc. It was fun, but not as relaxing as the other beaches.” – Rob, Trip Advisor
