Waikoko Beach, Kauai

Waikoko Beach, a small hidden beach adjacent to the highway at the end of Hanalei Bay, can be the perfect spot in the summer for those looking for a tranquil place to sunbathe. Getting to the beach from the highway is a little tricky - you have to climb down an embankment. There's a winter time surf break just off the reefs of Waikoko beach, typically more "gnarly" than nearby breaks and suited for expert surfers..
