Surf & Sand
South Shore beaches are sun-drenched and known for their summer swells. Near Kōloa, Mahaʻulepu is one of the most tranquil and isolated, located at the end of an old cane-hauling road. Meanwhile, the Travel Channel named Poipu Beach, which has lifeguards on duty, ‘America’s Best Beach’. The island’s West Side is the dry side, and where the towering dunes and fine white sands of Polihale beach stretch for 17 amazing, uninterrupted miles. Gusty Lydgate Park in Kapaa on the east side is so family friendly, you may leave with a few new Aunties, Uncles and Cousins. And on the North Shore, Makua, also known as Tunnels, has deep-water near-Shore caverns and some of Kaua’i’s most impressive snorkeling thanks to its half-moon shaped reef.
