Kauai’s east shore is rich in variety. It’s an ideal area to experience the beauty of Kauai, especially with a visit to the Wailua area with many sacred sites, petroglyphs, and other unique points of Hawaiian culture. Kayaking/boating up the Wailua River is a favorite for visitors and locals alike.
Generally, East Shore beaches are some of the more easily accessible beaches on the island. The condominiums, vacation rentals, hotels and island residents in Kapaa, Wailua and Waipouli make these beaches very popular on weekends and holidays. These beaches are subject to onshore breezes, which make for almost constant and windy conditions in most spots.
