Beautiful surroundings with a nice swimming area. I think this is my favorite beach on Kauai. Great scuba diving in the summer and great surfing in the winter. Breaks pretty far out not for beginners. A little hard to find you need to park on a small street that doesn't have a lot of parking, almost looks like an alley.... More

Tunnels Beach was a well-recieved recommendation from a friend, and an incredible one at that. Tunnels is a beach with soft golden sand and turquoise waters, backed by the dramatic emerald cliffsides and mountains iconic of north Kauai. It connects with Ha'ena Beach Park, which is where you're more likely to find parking as they have a lot (an equally... More

we visited here to see the caves on the other side of the beach... they were spectacular. But when we tried to find the tunnel beach, we were told by locals that it's just s regular beach, it's not really a 'tunnel' looking beach. nice beach regardless, seemed to be very popular with the locals.

You can check out the dry cave before going to the beach and relaxing or playing a fun game of spike ball! Cool down and take a dip in the water, so clean and pretty!

We were amazed at the dry cave. How immense it was. My two grandchildren were tickled by the fact we needed the fladhlight app onon our phones to be able to see. We followed this with going to the wet cave. We were not as impressed, but the hike above it was excellent

My husband and I went to Tunnels Beach to go snorkeling. There is NO snorkeling at this beach though. The waves are much too big and undertow too dangerous. I asked the lifeguard where we could snorkel and he pointed to the right of the lifeguard stand. We walked a good distance along the beach to a much more calm... More

Hard to get to and no parking, but worth the effort. Take lunch, snorkling equipment, There is shade, restrooms and lifeguards. Restaurants close by.

Not a must see. Did find a few people camping near the beach. Might be good for surfers. Not a beach for a leisurely swim.

It was very rough when we were there. The coast guard put the warning signs on the beach. The waves were very high. I walked the beach and took some pictures then left.
