Keʻe Beach - Description

Ke'e Beach is located at the far end of the north coast and is also the beginning of the Napali Coast and the famous Kalalau Trail that leads to Hanakapiai and Kalalau Beach. The water here is so clear and calm during the summer months that you might think you are in a swimming pool. Accordingly, the conditions for snorkeling are terrific and the beach is an extremely popular and very well visited spot.

The beach has a dreamlike scenery, in front the waves and in the background the mountains. There is even a small cave in the mountain.

The first two miles of the Kalalau Trail (between Ke'e Beach and Hanakāpīʻai Beach) may be entered by visitors without a ticket. However, to enter the adjacent Hā'ena State Park, a ticket booked well in advance is required (max. 900 visitors per day).

Parking at Hāʻena State Park is limited to 100 spaces, so you should get there very early or alternatively arrive by bus shuttle.

What we say

Tommy
The drive to the beach alone is spectacular, leading through narrow streets and over a bridge. One is rewarded with an impressive view. Except in the off-season, the beach is unfortunately very crowded and that of course also drives away the fish that you want to watch while snorkeling.
Our checklist & tips:
  • Limited parking, possibly take Kauai's North Shore shuttle.
  • Be there early is worth it
  • Shadow present
  • No catering on site
