Ke'e Beach, Kauai

(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
With its clear sea, greenery, and marine life, Ke'e Beach offers everything you would expect from a tropical paradise. According to the legend, the beach was the birthplace of hula dancing. You can hike coastal trails, swim, and watch the sunset here. Don't miss the opportunity to put on your snorkeling gear so you can see the colorful reef fish. The beach facilities include restrooms and showers, as well as a parking area. Due to the beach's popularity, finding a parking space can be tricky. Keep in mind that the beach is occasionally exposed to high surf that generates strong current; swimming and snorkeling during those times can be very perilous.

  • We love this beach. Often swim with turtles here. The snorkeling is great. The parking is terrible. Arrive by 9 am to get parking.  more »
