Kealia Beach sits just north of Kapa’a, off Highway 56. A popular beach, this gorgeous destination draws people to its deep, clean sand and walkable coastline. An ideal place for surfers and boogie boarders, this beach is best-suited to more experienced swimmers, as the riptide can be powerful and currents unpredictable.
If swimming isn’t high on your list, take the family down to the north shore of the beach, which features old ruins from the days when Kealia was a plantation town. The area features walking paths that are perfect for all-day exploration.
Entering the ocean anywhere along the Kauai coastline can be dangerous. Surf and ocean conditions change daily. Before entering the ocean check with a lifeguard or a current ocean safety report. To ensure safety swim only at lifeguarded beaches.
