As you travel north from Lydgate Beach Park, on Kauai’s east shore, you’ll find Wailua Beach, you can’t go far without stumbling across another long stretch of shimmering coastline, laden with golden sand. On the north side of the Wailua River, the only navigable river in Hawaii is where you’ll find Wailua Beach.

This easily accessible beach is beautiful for strolling and sightseeing. Like Kealia Beach to the north it is more suited for surfers and kite-boarders as wind and waves often prevail. There is no lifeguard at Wailua Beach. The north end of the beach does provide some swimming and snorkeling prospects as the reef there buffers a lot of the ocean’s energy.

You can also access a small cove in the north end of Wailua Bay Beach that is good for snorkeling when the water is calm. Public access to this hidden gem is located just before Kapaa Sands after veering right at the Shell station. The nice thing about Wailua Beach is that its close proximity to the Wailua River allows you to take advantage of any activities the river has to offer.

"I couldn’t believe how soft and white the sand was!"
Reviewed April 8, 2014
We stopped to take in the beauty of this beach on the way to Hanalei and it enticed us to come back another day which would be easy since we were staying that side. The views of the open ocean from this beach are amazing! I couldn’t believe how soft and white the sand was. Kauai has got to have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. For such a small island it’s just covered with amazing beaches. The thing we liked most about this beach is that you could play in the Wailua River at the same time.
