Located on western portion of Kauai, just before the road to Polihale, Kekaha Beach Park is best left for watching the sunset and beach combing. This beach marks the start of the longest stretch of white sand beach in the State of Hawaii (12 miles). Because of the strong wind, waves and river run off, the water is brown at times. Local surfers and fishermen enjoy the area as conditions here can be good for both. The island of Niihau and Lehua rock can be seen in the distance. This is the dry side of the island and if it’s raining elsewhere, you are likely to find the sun here!
This is the last lifeguarded beach on the west side. There are picnic areas and restroom facilities here.
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.
