Ke'e Beach Park is located at the north end of the Kalalau Trail in Ha'ena State Park in the Haena area of Kaua'i. It's really the last beach on the northwest side of the island that you can easily access and drive to. Go any further south along the west coast and things get difficult fast and require some serious hiking.

There is a lot of parking here but it fills up very fast so it may be difficult to find a spot, at least right near the beach access point. It's hugely popular and there's good reason for that, it's a lovely beach.

The water here can be very clear and the reef gives you a little protection from the bigger ocean waves. It's often best for swimming and snorkeling during the summer months in the shallow lagoon. You'll find lifeguards, bathrooms, and showers so bring the family and make a day of it.

The movie The Castaway Cowboy and TV series The Thorn Birds were both filmed here. For more movie and television trivia, be sure to read Popular Movies & TV Shows Filmed In Hawaii.
