Kalihiwai Bay Beach, Kauai

Kalihiwai Beach is a wide, white-sand beach and is located at the head of Kalihiwai Bay about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) from the town of Kilauea on Kauai’s north shore. The beach is fed by the Kalihiwai River and enclosed by lava cliffs on each side. It is fringed by grassy spots and shady ironwood trees standing in the backshore.

The only time you can safely swim on the beach is in summer when the waves are smaller and the ocean is calm.
