About a mile past Tunnels Beach at the end of Kuhio Hwy is Ke’e Beach Park. This will be the last beach you can reach by car on Kauai’s North Shore. It offers more awe-inspiring views being the closest beach to the Na Pali Coast. It does get very crowded after mid- morning, so show up early as the parking lot is not suited to accommodate all the visitors.
Ke'e Beach is a great snorkeling spot when the waters are calm. It has a protected sandy lagoon, but at times it is known to have strong currents. It is appropriately named “Ke’e”, which translates to “avoidance”, so always exercise caution. When in doubt, don’t go out. The famous Kalalau trail starts nearby and is the only land access into Na Pali Coast State Park.
At the east end of Ke'e Beach Park, Limahuli stream empties into the ocean making for some good fishing. There are also some ancient Hawaiian sites to discover nearby as well. With a lifeguard and the most marvelous sunsets, this beach is a must see.
