Hit Ke’e Beach (pronounced Keh-AY) at sunset for one of the most awe-inspiring views in the world. The stunning beach is located at the literal end of the road – the farthest you can drive on the north shore of Kauai. Located in the Ha’ena State Park, it is also the gateway to the spectacular Napali Coast. Ke’e is protected by a reef which makes it the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming. During the summer months, the blue-green water can be as calm and clear as a swimming pool.
You can fly direct to Lihu’e Airport on Kauai from several US mainland destinations including Vancouver, Honolulu and Kahului. To access the beach from Lihu’e, take Kuhio Highway and head north (hwy 56 and 560). You will need about an hour to drive all the way to the north shore (65 kilometers). At the very end of the road, you will reach a parking lot with showers and toilets. Park here and walk to the beach, which is located less than 100 m from here. Europeans, Asians, Australians and travelers from around the globe can easily get a flight to Kauai Island.
