Fodor's Expert Review Donkey Beach

Kapaa and Wailua Beach

This beach gets its unusual name from the former Lihue Plantation Company, which once kept a herd of mules and donkeys in the pasture adjacent to the beach. If the waves are right, body boarders and surfers might be spotted offshore. However, the waters here are rough and not recommended for swimming and snorkeling. Instead, we suggest a morning walk along the easy trail that overlooks the beach, starting at the northern end of Kealia Beach. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; sunrise; surfing.
