Drive to Barking Sands Beach ?

I have never been to Barking Sands. It looks like the paved road ends before you get there. Can I drive there in a car and not get stuck in the sand or mud? Is there a place to park? Any other nice beaches in this area that I can drive to?

Yes, it is possible to get to Barking sands beach. It's part of the Pacific Missile facility, so the government doesn't always let you through to the beach. I don't have my Kauai bible handy, so I'm not sure of the times.

Do you potentially mean Polihale Beach? It's just north of Barking Sands, and is a very long beach that goes right up to the southern reach of the Napali cliffs.

There is about 4-5 miles of dirt roads you drive through to get there, but it's absolutely spectacular. Sunset is a great time, and it's not hard to navigate back even after sunset.
