Keʻe Beach - Beschreibung

Ke'e Beach is located at the far end of the north coast. It 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. Because of that, the conditions for snorkelling are terrific and the beach is an extremely popular and very well-visited spot.

The beach has a dreamlike scenery with waves in the front and mountains in the background. 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 arrive by bus shuttle alternatively.

What we say

Tommy
The drive to the beach alone is spectacular, leading through narrow streets and over a bridge. You are rewarded with an impressive view. Except for the low season, the beach is unfortunately very crowded which scares off the fish that you want to watch while snorkelling.
Our checklist & tips:
  • Limited parking, perhaps take Kauai's North Shore shuttle
  • To be there early is worth it
  • Shadow present
  • No food on site
