    Maha'ulepu (Kawailoa Bay)

    Shipwrecks (Keoneloa Bay)
    A great area to explore, Keoneloa Bay offers adventurers a great chance to discover rocky peaks and wildlife. You may recognise this beach from the scene in "6 Days and 7 Nights" where Harrison Ford and Anne Heche plunge off a cliff. Please note: this beach may not be suitable for children.

    Po'ipu Beach Park
    Po'ipu Beach Park offers a huge range of activities for the whole family including a protected area for swimming and snorkeling. During the winter months, while the North coast can be stormy and rough, Po'ipu Beach Park provides waters as calm as a swimming pool.

  • Beaches in North Kaua'i

    Kauapea (Secret Beach)
    One of the best kept secrets of Hawaii, Kuaupea Beach in North Kaua'i is a beautiful and peaceful place, perfect for relaxing. It is very remote so you will have to hike for 15 minutes to get to the beach, but because of this it is never crowded. Take a quiet dip in the clear waters and enjoy some time lying back on the soft golden sand and relaxing.

    Anini Beach
    With grassy areas and trees nearby, this tranquil beach provides the perfect location for a break from the sunshine. Home to Hawaii's largest coral reef, Anini Beach is a great spot for family time, paddling, swimming and fishing.
    Hanalei Bay
    Stroll along the 2 mile long stretch of white sand and magnificent mountains. Hanalei Bay is home to some of the most picture-perfect views on the whole island - be careful when entering the water though as the waves are powerful. World champion surfers call Hanalei Bay 'home' for a very good reason.

    Lumaha'i Beach
    Filming location of 'South Pacific', Lumaha'i Beach provides the perfect photo opportunity. Make sure to watch your step though, the currents are stronger here than anywhere else on Kaua'i Island and the beach itself is on a steep slope. Not suitable for families but the perfect hotspot for lone explorers and groups of friends.

    Makua Beach
    With incredible mountainous scenery, also found in the movie 'South Pacific', this beach has a lot more to offer than just a beautiful backdrop. Makua Beach is one of the best places on Kaua'i Island for snorkeling and is also a great place to watch highly skilled surfers at their best. With a shallow inner reef, this beach is perfect for families and little ones.
