Best Beaches on the West Side of Kauai

The west side of Kauai had one of the best beaches right on the edge of the Napali Coast, but we needed a Jeep (or 4x4) to reach it. Most of the Napali Coast and its beaches are only accessible by boat, helicopter, or hiking with a permit. This is where famous movies like Jurassic Park and King Kong were filmed.

Best Beaches and Waterfalls on the East side of Kauai

East Kauai has some of the best beaches and waterfalls. This is where we stayed on our trip to Kauai. We loved it because it was centrally located to get to either the north side or the south side of the island. Check out each blog post for ideas of beaches and waterfalls to visit on your next trip to Kauai.
