Compared to a few other beaches nearby, there is a parking lot. We found a spot pretty easily, but I imagine in peak season it can be pretty crowded. We walked east down the beach, which takes you over to Tunnels Beach. At least do...More

We drove to the north end of the island to explore and finished here. It is stunning! This beach is protected from the wind and has beautiful sand, surf, shells and rocks! There were campers and it's opposite a dry cave you can wander into....More

This area feels a little more wild and jungley. It's relaxing and full of nature, but that also means dangers. Be mindful of others while driving to the area and be careful when it's raining as it can become slippery, muddy or flooded very quickly....More

This was the a great beach to relax and enjoy the view and swim too. The water was beautiful. It was turquoise more like you would see in the Caribbean. It was right across the road from the the dry cave and had showers too.

If you wanna watch surfers or are yourself interested in surfing this is an excellent place to be in the winter! Go early to get parking or you will end up a long ways away or getting a ticket because you parked in an area...More

This is a really good beach but it can be hard to find parking. Don’t park where the signs say not to because they do ticket.

It’s a bit of a drive on a narrow, winding road. But it’s a beautiful drive passing lots of beaches and Hanalei bay. There’s a cave created by the ocean that’s pretty cool to look at. The beach itself beautiful, but today the waves were...More

Drove to the end of the road for a look at the beach. The area to the front of the lifeguard station was clearly dangerous with numerous warning signs. Indeed a 'missing person' poster, describing someone last seen snorkelling perhaps says it all. The beach...More
