We were staying on the North Shore and it would rain every day. However, we found beautiful Kealia Beach just 20 minutes to the east. Take your own chairs, lunch, drinks and so on. There are some restrooms available, but they are a bit rough. The beach itself is wonderful, the waves are great and you might even see a whale or two. On Friday late afternoon you will see NCL's Pride of America making its way to the Napali Coast Line. So happy we found this beach, it saved our week in Kauai.
