Kee Beach Kauai

Kee Beach Kauai is literally the end of road—it's the last of Kauai's beaches accessible by car along the North Shore. The peaceful lagoon is best for visitors to use during the summer months when the ocean is calm and conditions are safe. Protected from rough waves by inshore reefs, this lagoon is ideal for snorkeling during this period. Kee Beach vacations are most popular between mid-December and March, and it can get crowded. Traveling outside the peak tourist season offers better access and more room to snorkel, swim, and sunbathe.

One of the best features of Kee Beach is the incredible view of the Na Pali Coast as it careens along westward from the beach. The shoreline is mostly soft sand with a rocky point and some inshore rock shelves. Facilities available at the beach include showers, restrooms, and parking. There are scores of things to do in and around Kee Beach Kauai. Beachcombing, swimming, sunbathing, diving, paddling, snorkeling, and fishing are all terrific activities to try during Kee Beach vacations. However, for anyone enjoying honeymoons, Kee Beach might not be the best choice as the romance can be lost in the hustle of the crowds.

Area hiking opportunities include the Kalau Trail and the Hanakapi'ai Trail. There are great Kauai vacation rentals near Kee Beach in Princeville, Haena, and Hanalei for visitors who want to stay nearby. A drive east will get you to famous Tunnel Beach, Lumahai Beach West, and beautiful Hanalei Bay. Kee Beach delivers all the best qualities of Kauai's prime beaches, and if you get there early enough you might even have the beach almost to yourself for a while to soak up the memories.
