Kauai is known for its spectacular rocks, gorges and rain forests, but it is also home to some of Hawaii's most scenic sands. For the adventurous and laid-back traveller, from windsurfing the Hanalei Bay in the North Shore to whale and turtle watching in Poipu Beach Park in the North.
Please note: The weather and swell on each beach varies depending on the time of year, so always be careful and follow the swim warnings. The Anini Beach Parc offers kilometers of beach with plenty of sand, sheltered by a giant cay. When you' re ready to clean it up, try camp in the camp.
There is a facility, but there are no rescue swimmers. The Kee Beach is at the end of Hwy 560. The Kalalau Trail on the Napali Coast also starts at Kee Beach. The Lydgate Beach Park is protected from the open sea by a cliff face, making the snorkelling area near Lydgate a favourite place for kids to enjoy themselves.
Toilets, barbecue areas and life-swimmers are available on this family-friendly East Side beach. The Kalapaki Beach is located in front of the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. Bag a picknick, catch a shaving egg and observe the Kauai windsurfers on the break. Some of the beach is shaded from the open sea, providing quiet and secure surroundings for children.
The Kealia Beach is half a nautical miles along the gold coastline that embraces the bend of Hwy 56. Swimming or boarding near the northern end, where a breakwaters forms a sheltered area. The hostel has a lifeguard and lifeguard service. The Poipu Beach Park is one of the most beloved in Kaui, with its crystalline water and occasionally performances of Hwaiian cetaceans.
There is also a paddling area for young people. Lifeguard, barbecue areas, shower and pavilion make this south shore beach a great family outing. The Salt Pond Beach Parc is near Hanapepe on the west side. It is an excellent place to unwind, go swimming or discover the flat tidal waters.
Lifeguard and equipment are available. The Kekaha Beach is a popular surfing and angling site on the western side of Kauai. The long, sand track is also a great place to explore the sundown. Sometimes heavy wind and current can make Kekaha Beach hazardous for swim, so pay attention to the circumstances.
