“Great, expansive beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Recently visited Kealia beach and it's lovely! It's a big beach area with lots of room to spread out and enjoy. The ocean is rough and there are plenty of surfers, paddlers, and boogie-boarders to keep you occupied as a spectator. There's always a nice breeze, which is needed since there isn't any shade at this beach, and the bike path runs right by this beach. There's also abundant parking, lifeguards, and restrooms. Overall, a great beach to enjoy while in Kauai!

“Our local beach-Usually dangerous, but fun beach if you are careful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

There is an area where it is fairly safe to swim...where the other people are swimming. There is a reason they are there. Watch for orange danger flags. Don't go to far out and hang on to your kids on those rough days! Lifeguards are great, but they are a ways away...over closer to the surfers.Watch for the rocks and holes. Great waves close in. Enjoy!

“Beautiful Beach!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

A favorite beach of mine in Kauai. Plenty of parking, big waves and near many area food locations in the Kapaa area on the east coast. Beware of strong ocean currents. Bike/walking path runs along this stretch of beach with lifeguard and restrooms onsite.

“East Shore Wave Action”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Great beach north of Kapaa. North end calmer, south end has stronger current. Plenty of parking. Tables for picnics. Bring a boogie board. Kid friendly.
