Fodor's Review

This is a drive-up beach park popular with campers year-round. The wide bay here—named Makua—is bordered by two large reef systems creating favorable waves for skilled surfers during peak winter conditions. In July and August, waters at this same beach usually are as calm as a lake. To the east of the park is a popular snorkeling area nicknamed Tunnels for its underwater lava tubes. Entering the water can be dangerous in winter when the big swells roll in. During the

summer months only, this is a premier snorkeling site on Kauai. It's not unusual to find a food vendor parked here selling sandwiches and drinks out of a converted bread van. Amenities: lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; food and drink. Best For: walking; snorkeling; surfing.
