A beautiful inlet beach perfect for taking in a day on Kauai. Not littered as a previous review states but plenty of natural drift wood and coconuts along the shore. Watch for the small ghost crabs darting around into their little holes. Gilligans Island was...More

Moloa'a is the beach where Gilligan's Island was originally filmed. Now there are homes along the waterfront, but there is still access to the beach. Parking is the major problem as there is only enough room to park about 8 cars, then you walk about...More

Another site we wanted to try. Very nice quite beach but there was allot of litter on the beach. Needs to be cleaned up but overall very enjoyable. Nice little place to snorkel on the south east corner.

I read about this beach in a local magazine and happened to stop off tonight in the early evening coming “home” from the north shore. It’s spectacular. The big yet quaint cove is quiet and untouched; I’m so jealous of the people who live in...More

Off the beaten path, very quiet with good hiking trails around the point with bird nesting areas. Hard to find parking however.

This beach is off the beaten path, very quiet and lovely. There aren't any services so make sure you bring everything you need and plenty of water. There is a little nature trail and the cove is just perfect. I love this beach.

An out of the way beach that can get very busy. Nice sandy bottom and large beach area to the right of the pier.

This is our favorite beach because it has a shallow river that comes into the ocean. It has a sandy bottom and is warm. We love to go in there. It is not above normal chest height at the deepest. Water in the ocean is...More

I've visited this beach several years now but my most recent visit gave me pause on how this spot should be rated for 2017. Five years ago, I would have said 5 stars all the way, but a few factors have changed my opinion. A...More
