This beach is off the beaten path, very quiet and lovely. There aren't any services so make sure you bring everything you need and plenty of water. There is a little nature trail and the cove is just perfect. I love this beach.

This beach is off the beaten path (but then so are most things in Kauai. It is a very pretty little beach with golden sand and clear blue water.

Photos of this beach don't do it justice, it's gorgeous, but it can be deadly. The week we were there on Wed., 1/18, a man drown while trying to snorkel WAY OUT in the bay. Rescue helicopter, wave-runners, EMS, etc. it was shocking and sad....More
