Naue Beach is now open after the historic floods in 2018. See our updated North Shore Kauai road news which includes new parking regulations and Shuttle information. On behalf of our island community, we thank you for your kokua during this time.
Known for its beauty and off the beaten track destination, Naue is one of the most hidden Kauai beaches you will find on your Kauai vacation. Nestled a mile from Tunnels Beach, this stretch of sand is seldom identified on any Kauai map.
Naue Beach offers miles of shoreline for walking and quiet areas to relax under the tropical Kauai sun. Pick your favorite spot for the ultimate Kauai beach day and get away from it all. During summer when the surf is low, you can refresh yourself in the shallow waters of Naue but swimming is never recommended.

Tunnels Beach is where everyone goes for some of the best Kauai snorkeling. On your shoreline walk the kids can look for seashells. Mount Makana, known as Bali Hai in the movie South Pacific, rises in the distance. Tunnels Beach is teeming with tropical fish and the best viewing will be in the center of the crescent shaped reef.

Directions: Drive four miles past Hanalei town towards Kee Beach and take the second right turn after the entrance to the Hanalei Colony Resort. This street is Alealea Road.
