This beach is accessible with parking and has the necessary features for an enjoyable beach-side fun spot. It is a tree-fringed, sweeping, sandy bay with a picturesque mountain back-drop. Very Good

This is a beautiful beach fairly close to Kapaa, where we stay. We started going there because it was close, but I really like it - it's a lovely view, and fairly quiet, even on week-ends, because there's a lot of space. You can park very close to the beach, and there's also shade, very important at times.

This is a locals beach so you won't encounter many tourists here. Scenery is lovely and there are areas where swimming is great. Shallow areas allow children to play. However, check with the lifeguards if you snorkel. Currents here can be strong. My favorite way to enjoy this beach is to picnic and relax on the beach or just sitting... More

It's an ok beach and people can drive on it. It wont be one I visit again. Surf was rough and beach was not awesome.

One of the nicest beaches in Kauai. It is worth the drive, off the beaten path. It is used primarily by locals. Nice expanse of sand in secluded area. Exceptional views. Everything that you want in a tropical island Beach.

Never been to this beach or park before and were a bit "not so sure about it" since you have to really want to find it - we saw no signs where to turn off the highway for it. We did a map search online and as we were leaving Kealia Farm Market decided to drive on up the mountain... More

What a great, quiet, big beach! One end of the beach is perfect for little kids as it is calm and shallow. The other end is good for boogie boarding and surfing. Its a great beach to hang out at without the tourists crowd.

The beach was quiet with few people, mostly locals. The swimming would be perfect if you have smaller children as it is quite protected. Unfortunately there was a lot of garbage in the sand, particularly cigarette butts which definitely took away from the visit. Definitely worth a visit for a lazy day.

Love this beach park as it is not that easy to find. Disocver where the people who live here go. It's a gorgeous beach and has incredible views. You'll love the small town feel and lush landscape. Swimming is also good. Check it out.

Thank Marybart
