My favorite beach...only the brave and excellent swimmers will enter the water. Don't the waves take your feet out or go out to an uncomfortable distance in the water. You will get pulled out. Plenty of trees for shade and private places to sit. Waves are sick and the sand is soft. A must do beach!!!

This was actually a moderately tough walk on the beach as the sand is so soft your calves get a huge workout. Also, if you start your hike at the river, the round trip is about 1.6 miles. Beautiful though. Worth it.

Was here back in 05' with my family. Awesome beach but not necessarily the best swimming beach. Strong undertows due to the steep drop off are really dangerous. Cool to sit and watch the waves roll in though. Gorgeous sand.

Wonderful beach...absolutely love Kauai's northern shore, especially near Hanalei Bay.
