One of the nicest beaches in Kauai. It is worth the drive, off the beaten path. It is used primarily by locals. Nice expanse of sand in secluded area. Exceptional views. Everything that you want in a tropical island Beach.

Never been to this beach or park before and were a bit "not so sure about it" since you have to really want to find it - we saw no signs where to turn off the highway for it. We did a map search online and as we were leaving Kealia Farm Market decided to drive on up the mountain... More

What a great, quiet, big beach! One end of the beach is perfect for little kids as it is calm and shallow. The other end is good for boogie boarding and surfing. Its a great beach to hang out at without the tourists crowd.

The beach was quiet with few people, mostly locals. The swimming would be perfect if you have smaller children as it is quite protected. Unfortunately there was a lot of garbage in the sand, particularly cigarette butts which definitely took away from the visit. Definitely worth a visit for a lazy day.

Love this beach park as it is not that easy to find. Disocver where the people who live here go. It's a gorgeous beach and has incredible views. You'll love the small town feel and lush landscape. Swimming is also good. Check it out.

We found the beach rather flat and with too many campers. Otherwise the facilities were OK. We preferred the numerous other beaches of the island

Huge pot holes in the parking lot to maneuver through to get to this reef enclosed beach. Nice sandy beach good for swimming but not much to see snorkeling. A walk up the trail next to the park led to a garbage filled camping area filled with homeless people and littered with broken glass and junk cars. While there is... More

Just a few miles north of Kapa'a Anahola beach stretches for over a mile. Inside the park we go to the far end of the dirt entrance, bumpy, to get to the Keiki safe flat waters. Getting about neck deep its a place to soak in sun and warm salt water. Further west (and north) the beach transforms into a... More

A nice quiet beach where you could boogie board or snorkel. My favorite beach by far!! We got to see a monk seal on the beach as well.
