Waikoko Beach is a small, hidden beach in the Hanalei area on the shore shore of Kaua'i. Specifically, it's on the west side of Hanalei Bay and our map / directions page will take you right there.

There parking situation here is a small dirt area off the side of the Kuhio Highway right near our map pinpoint. It's not ideal but chances are good it won't be too packed most of the time. On weekends you can expect more of a crowd.

You'll face a very small climb down to get from the road level to the beach level. Once at the bottom, you'll find a slightly protected area at the north end and a mostly empty beach all around. It's not big, but it is fairly well hidden so it almost falls into the secret beach category.
