Long beach, little or no shade. It has lifeguards and it was packed when we visited. Good sunrise photos though.

There is a beautiful trail that goes by this beach. There are a few covered picnic tables, too for families and small groups to have lunch or meet. It is, though, just on the highway, so it's not the out of the way beach some folks might be looking for, this wouldn't be for you. There is however, a bathroom... More

This beach is located alongside Kuhio highway just north of Kapa'a. This beach is very long with a nice bit of sand. The Ke Ala Hele Makalae also runs alongside the beach. The parking area is very large so parking has never been a problem. This is a lifeguarded beach with picnic tables located on both the north and south... More

Went here in winter and there were lost of surfers out. The waves here are pretty mild but enough to give a beginner a challenge. Nice wide open beach...plenty of area to hang out and enjoy the beautiful Kauai weather.

We went for a walk along the Ke Ala Hele Makalae East Shore Beach Path and found that this beach was uncrowded and very nice. Clean with plenty of picnic huts, adequate parking and restrooms. Also has a lifeguard, so good place for families.

We ended up at Kealia Beach only because we saw it driving by, and it looked gorgeous. It really is. A beautiful, long sandy beach. What's not to love. Surf can be brutal, so be careful. A nice walking path nearby as well. Also, nice shaded picnic tables really make this a place to enjoy a gorgeous day in Kaua'i.

I like this beach. It's close to where I live, so I am able to go there decently. It's not crowded, and the sand is nice.

Kauai is filled with phenomenal beach park and this one is no exception. I lost count of how many we visited. The views here are incredible.

Stopped here on our bike ride and took a dip in the ocean. Plenty of parking today. Small, medium or large waves spending on your interest and skill. Nice showers and bathrooms too. Make this a stop for sure!

Kealia Beach is a nice beach to just kick back and relax at. It is easy to find with lots of parking. It has Lifeguards and public restrooms. We walked in the clean sand and watched the surfers ride the waves.
