Lonely Planet review
Obviously artificial (the 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 little kids to swim and even snorkel. Around the kiawe-covered point are gaggles of turtles, some quite large. Access is through a private country club and is limited to 28 cars, so it's never that crowded. Access is via Kukiʻo Nui Rd near the 87-mile marker; go to the gate and request a pass.
