North shore beaches - Kepuhi, Wainiha, Pu’u Poa, and Kalihiwai beaches
The beautiful beaches of Kauai’s north shore also include Kepuhi Beach, Wainiha Beach Park, Pu’u Poa Beach, and Kalihiwai Beach.
The reef that surrounds this beach is longer than the sandy beach and the resulting current is a bit stronger than in other similar beach/reef locations. As a result swimmers should take caution. Take Alamoo Road on the eastern end if you want to access Kepuhi Beach for a day of private snorkeling, well almost private anyway!
Wainiha Beach Park
Pu’u Poa Beach
Off the edge of the reef at Pu’u Poa Beach expert surfers find some of the best waves on the entire island during winter. If you are a beginner or intermediate surfer do not try the waves out here.
There are many other North Shore beaches, these are just a few you might like to know about that aren’t as popular as some of the others. Regardless, these are great beaches with the exception of Wainiha Beach Park to enjoy the water, snorkeling, and catching some waves. When you are in Kauai try them out and you will certainly enjoy all they have to offer!
