This beach is located on the west side of kauai. It's very secluded and not over run by tourists. It has a natural kitty pool and a great place to launch out rentals as well as a perfect place to swim with calm waters or just wade. It has beautiful rocks that help break the waves so that the waters... More

A very nice kept beach in Hanapepe. Perfect for kids as it has a rock barrier on the right side. There are several gazebos, showers, and toilets. On the left side of the beach there is a lifeguard and saw several folks snorkeling. The best part is that it was not crowded. Simply put, the beach was safe for the... More

So beautiful, it's out of this world. The sand is soft, the water is a comfortable temperature, the mountains behind are majestic...quiet beach too.

This is a great family beach, highly underated. We were surprised to find this gem. Only a 15-20 minuted drive from Poipu well worth it to avoid the crowds. Its a great beach for young families with small children. We were there with our two teenagers and they enjoyed it and would go back there. The beach has a lifeguard,... More

Woke up in the morning in Lihue and it was raining. So, what did we do? We went to the southwest side of the island of course! Lovely beach, nice to swim and or fish on. Even I caught a fish here. Really nice.

This is a great beach that has a lifeguard and wasn't busy at all. The beach is protected by rocks so you can snorkel and swim without feeling like you are going to be taken out to sea. We did snorkel out by the rocks and enjoyed a lot of sea life. This was our first snorkeling spot and a... More

There are two sides - the larger side has crashing waves coming up to the sand and the second smaller area is protected by a rock barrier that creates a great place for kids to play. The waves crash at the rocks and sometimes will cascade over the rocks making a beautiful waterfall effect. There are some rocks and coral... More

Perfect beach for a quiet and relaxing day. Wide open, and was barely populated the two times we went. Not great boogie boarding, snorkeling was okay, but this is a chill-out, just swim and enjoy the views beach. Much better than ANY beach on Poipu.

My Wife and I fell in love with this beach! It was our perfect little get away when we wanted to break away from the family for awhile. My Wife and I walked the beach and took in an amazing sunset together. It was a favorite stop while we were in Kauai for the week. The icing on the cake,... More

My husband and I love this beach. It is almost always good for swimming. The sandy bottom is great. Good place to watch the sunset. You may just see a monk seal. It is never crowded and a perfect place to spend the whole day.
