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 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.

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
