Good for young kids

Beach had a lagoon with calm and shallow waters and beautiful mountain views. It seemed popular with campers.

If you go to this beach be aware this is a "locals" beach and even though all beaches in Kauai are public be aware of the locals asking questions and giving small lectures about how "Their" beaches are being taken over by tourist. Be respectful and you shouldn't have any problems. The beaches are nice with waves and snorkel areas... More

Great beach. Great waves for boogie boarding. Very few rocks but you do have to be careful. Waves tend to be pretty rough at times but really fun.

This beach is accessible with parking and has the necessary features for an enjoyable beach-side fun spot. It is a tree-fringed, sweeping, sandy bay with a picturesque mountain back-drop. Very Good

This is a beautiful beach fairly close to Kapaa, where we stay. We started going there because it was close, but I really like it - it's a lovely view, and fairly quiet, even on week-ends, because there's a lot of space. You can park very close to the beach, and there's also shade, very important at times.

This is a locals beach so you won't encounter many tourists here. Scenery is lovely and there are areas where swimming is great. Shallow areas allow children to play. However, check with the lifeguards if you snorkel. Currents here can be strong. My favorite way to enjoy this beach is to picnic and relax on the beach or just sitting... More

It's an ok beach and people can drive on it. It wont be one I visit again. Surf was rough and beach was not awesome.

One of the nicest beaches in Kauai. It is worth the drive, off the beaten path. It is used primarily by locals. Nice expanse of sand in secluded area. Exceptional views. Everything that you want in a tropical island Beach.
