This is the end of the road, literally. The last beach accessible by car on the north shore, Ke'e's gentle ocean lagoon is best utilized in the calm ocean conditions of the summer. The lagoon is protected from waves by reefs which provide good snorkeling during these seasonal calms. A view of the entire Na Pali coast stretches westwards from this point. Public parking, bathrooms and showers.
Incredible Na Pali sunsets from the point.
Strong currents. Dangerous waves breaking on rocks, ledges and reefs. Sharp coral and slippery rocks.
Mostly sandy shoreline with rock shelves and a rocky point. Mixed reef and sand underwater.
Not Good For
Romantic quiet time. Unless you arrive very early or stay very late, Ke'e is one of Kauai's more popular beaches and often has a good sized crowd.
