Keʻe Beach

Keʻe Beach information

Lonely Planet review

Perhaps the most memorable North Shore sunsets happen at this spiritual place, from where the first Hawaiians to practice hula came. It offers a refreshing dip after hiking the nearby Kalalau Trail in summer months. Beware that Keʻe Beach has appeared calm to swimmers when otherwise. Keʻe has a keyhole in its reef, through which some have been sucked under. Summer brings waves of car break-ins in the parking lot, so leave cars (especially those that are obviously rentals, such as Mustangs, Sebrings and PT Cruisers) free from valuables. There are showers and restrooms on-site.
