Recommended Beaches in Kauai!

Good website about beaches in Hawaii

Tunnels Beach

Beautiful, North shore, it seems still closed

Anini Beach

North shore before Hanalei, seems nice, safest, lifeguard, probably with many kids, good for sunset, I like it

Anahola Beach Park

Safest, lifeguard, no shorebreak, many other services, I like it

Secret Beach

Not perfect for swimming, shorebreak, no direct access, short hike required

Poipu Beach Park

Crowded, sea turtles on the beach, snorkeling ok, calm water

Haena Beach Park

Beautiful, lifeguard, good walk

Lawa'i Beach

Good snorkeling, quite small, the reef is deep, not easy to enter in the water

Polihale State Park Beach

Probably the best beach, Waimea location, inspiring, dark night with lots of stars, shorebreak, no shade spot, umbrella or tent required, good for sunset, not easy access, 8km of dirt road

it’s only accessible via a long gravel/dirt/sand road that keeps most potential visitors away

Pali Ke Kua Beach

Worth seeing, not easy access, princeville location, hike required, good snorkeling

Kahili Beach (Rock Quarry Beach)

avoid on murky water (sharks warning), rip current near the stream mouth, there is better…

Shipwreck Beach

Strong shorebreak, swimming not recommended

Kiahuna Beach (Poipu)

No lifeguard, watch out for the rocks, and rogue waves

Puu Poa Beach

Parking area, no hike required, swimming ok, Princeville area

Kalihiwai Beach

No services, shallow water near stream exit

Hanamaulu Beach

murky water near shore, campers around, seems not good for swimming

Kealia Beach

seems nice, long walk, swimming limited, parking area

Moloa'a Bay

good snorkeling, best on calm water, parking limited

Salt Pond Beach Park

nice beach, good snorkeling, swimming ok, parking area

Wainiha Beah Park

picnic, no swimming, shade available

Lydgate Beach Park

safe beach, covered with rocks against shorebreak
