About a two mile hike down from the Kalalau Trail is Hanakapiai Beach. The beach is beautiful but dangerous to swim. A difficult two mile hike inland near the stream leads to the waterfalls and a spectacular pool. Kalalau Beach is a long and wide sandy beach backed by sand dunes located at the end of the trail (9 additional miles). There are other beautiful pristine beaches such as Milolii Beach and Honopu Beach in the park but they are only accessible by boat. Swimming and wading is dangerous due to strong currents and powerful waves at all the beaches in this awe-inspiring park. Camping allowed with permit. No lifeguard on duty. Access the beach from Kalalau Trail from Kee Beach at the end of Hwy 56.
