Kauai is the oldest Hawaiian Island, and itʻs geological age has blessed it with a huge array of beaches with fine white sand. The entire coastline is dotted with gorgeous beaches, all offering soft sand for sunning and plenty of space for swimming, but each beach is unique with what other activities they offer. Some are great for surfing, other for watching the sunset, while others have amazing snorkeling or hold title as great family beaches.
On Kauai, a great beach is never far away. On the North Shore gems like Keʻe Beach Park and Haʻena Beach Park are just minutes apart from each other by car, and actually blend into each other on the beach. While the former is home to a wonderful snorkeling pool made naturally, Haʻena is a great place to camp, swim and watch surfers on epic waves.
The east side draws avid snorkeling into Lydgate Beach Park with itʻs natural ocean pool that hold the title as the islandʻs best snorkeling spot. This amazing family beach offers places for picnics, safe swimming, the best snorkeling, and has a huge playground.
At the end of the road of the west side lies Polihale Beach Park. Miles and miles of fine white sand offer the islandʻs best seats for the sunset, and the secluded beach is great for camping and beach combing. Spend a day out here with lunch and exploring and donʻt leave before sunset.
