Kauai's top beaches include Poipu Beach on the south shore, which has facilities, limited parking, and a somewhat rocky beach. Hanalei Bay Beach on the north shore is a quiet, less-visited spot with a number of great bed and breakfasts. Our favorite beach is Ke'e Beach, west of Hanalei at the end of the road. The swimming is good here, and in addition the beautiful, crystal-clear water affords great snorkeling opportunities. Kauai has a number of other good beaches, including some near the Na Pali Coast that can only be reached by boat.
