Nice secluded beach protected by Kauai Marriot and other buildings. Dukes and JJs Broiler are both beachside to eat and have drinks. Nice brick paver promenade to walk between Marriot and beach.

This beach is right along the highway with plenty of parking and a very short walk to the brown sand beach. It is close to Kapaa so we went there the day before our departure back to California.

This beach, in front of the Kauai Marriott is a nice place to relax or swim. It is a protected beach, so calm most of the time. There are a couple of great restaurants here and shopping close by. Worth the Visit.
