Though obviously artificial (a thin layer of sand laid over concrete is hard on the feet), Kikaua Beach has some things going for it. There's lots of shade, and a completely protected cove is perfect for teaching keiki (children) to swim and even snorkel. Around the kiawe-covered point are gaggles of sea turtles. Facilities include restrooms, outdoor showers and drinking water.

Public beach access is through a private country club and residential development. It's limited to 28 cars per day, so it never feels that crowded. To get here, turn makai onto Kukiʻo Nui Rd near mile marker 87 on Hwy 19. Drive to the security guardhouse and request a parking pass and directions to the beach.
