The beach is my happy place and the worries of life just seem to vanish once I am there. I could easily listen to the sound of the waves for a few hours and just soak up the sun. I fell in love with the beaches of Kauai through my screen and just had to make it there and I hope you can make it there too! Here are some of my personal favorite beaches in Kauai.
Shhh it’s a secret but this was the best beach in the island! Located in the East side you’ll find this secret gem of a beach. There is about a 10 minute steep hike to get down to this beach but it’s worth it! You’ll find great waves to surf or boogie board in, beautiful views of the light house and no crowds
This is a popular beach for its cliff jumping and surfing the waves! There are many shady trees you can hang hammocks in and there is also a beautiful hike along the coast to explore. This beach is located on the South side by the Grand Hyatt and parking can be difficult because of its popularity.
This is the most famous beach in Kauai and you have probably seen this in many publications. I would recommend going for the experience and crossing this beautiful beach of your list. The great thing about this beach is that there are many amenities such as picnic tables, bathrooms, and shops. We brought our boogie boards and attempted to catch some waves.
This beach is located between a residential community and parking can be very difficult. This beach is literally the backyard to some of these homes so you’ll find many locals at this beach. My favorite part of this beach is the swing I found along the beach! It was simply perfect.
DONKEY BEACH (TOP PICTURE)
Nope there are no Donkeys here and hardly any crowds! It is about a 15 minute walk to get down to the beach from the parking lot. It’s a calmer beach that you can snorkel and catch some easy waves. There are bathrooms and showers located in the parking lot to freshen up.
