Tunnels Beach (Makua) – A Kauai Snorkeling and Diving Paradise

Tunnels Beach, also known as Makua Beach, is one of Kauai’s most exciting spots for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. What makes it so great is its large lagoon and its massive hook-shaped reef that provides protection from the surf. The reef here is so big, it can actually be seen from space. »

 

Hanakapiai Beach

One of Kauai’s most popular day-hike destinations is beautiful Hanakapiai Beach. To get there you must walk the first two miles of Kalalau Trail, which begins at Kee Beach. The hike to Hanakapiai takes about 1.5 hours and another 1.5 for the trip back. »

 

Kee Beach

At the end of Kuhio Highway (Hwy 560) on Kauai’s north shore lays an absolutely beautiful beach called Kee Beach. The views here are spectacular. Behind the beach’s golden sands sit the magnificent, green cliffs of Na Pali Coast. All around the beach are palm trees and lush vegetation. »

 

Kalalau Beach

The beautiful Kalalau Beach lies at the foot of Kauai’s spectacular and often photographed Kalalau Valley. Getting to this beach on foot isn’t easy, but if you want to camp on a long, wide, picturesque, tropical beach with vegetated sand dunes, caves and a beautiful waterfall cascading down towering, red-ish-brown cliffs generously coated with lush, green vegetation, then I think you’ll find the long hike to Kalalau Beach well worth the challenge. »
