At the end of the road on the north shore of Kauai lies a real gem. Ke'e Beach. With a natural lagoon sheltered by a reef, it's an ideal spot for experienced swimmers/snorkellers and beginners alike. Tropical fish are in abundance and can be seen in about three feet of water without using a snorkel. As it's the beginning of the NaPali coast, the scenery is stunning. I five minute stroll up the beach offers spectacular views of these magnificent cliffs. As the trailhead for the Kalalau trail is here, parking is at a premium and all parking spaces right up by the beach are virtually full 24/7. There is a sort of overflow car park in a field a few hundred yards up the road. Be careful parking here. It's one of the most uneven surfaces I've seen with deep pot holes, large boulders etc. Drive slowly and carefully if your in a car and not and SUV/jeep as I've seen people rip off their exhausts here. Avoid parking on the side of the road even if other people do. The police visit on a regular basis and are liberal with their parking tickets. A must-see but get there before 9am if you want to get parked.
