Kauai's East Shore Beaches

Kaua's North Shore beaches Kauai's East Shore Beaches Kauai's South Shore beaches Kauai's West Shore beaches

Kapa'a Beach Park:  In the heart of Kapa'a.  This is a popular beach with the locals.  While not so great for snorkeling, it is good for a nice stroll, and it's positioned just right to view the sunrise.

Waipouli Beach:  Although this is not a good swimming beach, it is a pretty beach and its greatest appeal is the paved shoreline trail the runs along much of the beach.  It's great for taking a stroll or for going for a pleasant jog.

Kalapaki Beach: Located behind the Anchor Cover Shopping Center at Nawiliwili park, this beach is partially protected and has a sandy bottom has a gentle slope that makes it great for swimming, bodysurfing, windsurfing and bodyboarding when seas are calm.  Take the road behind the shopping center, or you can get to it through the Marriott hotel.

Lydgate State Park:  This beach is located south of the Wailua River and is a beach/picnic area, currently undergoing a major overhaul/improvement.  There is a playground, a grassy area, restrooms and showers, and the beach is overseen by lifeguards.  The are two protected areas that are great for swimming or for beginning snorkelers.  Take Leho Road (about mile #5) on Hwy 56 in Wailua.
