Pila'a Beach is a very sparsely visited beach on Kauai's north shore. It is difficult to access and since the nearshore ocean bottom is rocky, it's not a good beach for swimming. The beach is a good spot to just relax without the crowds, but since the trail to it is rocky, it's even challenging to bring a picnic basket.
Directions: Drive N. Waiakalua Road almost to the end. Then take the dirt road that veers off to the left just before the end of the road. From here there is a foot trail on the right leading to Pila'a Beach (a 10-20-minute hike). Alternatively, one can see Pila'a Beach from a lookout point above the cliffs near the end of the dirt road.
Anyone of sound body can easily and quickly walk down
to this secluded, idyllic, photogenic beach fronting a
gorgeous calm, shallow bath bay. Like other little
adventures with warnings on them in Kauai, there are
those who would prefer to reserve this treasure for
local brahs and their big land owners. Be there for the
calm experience, be respectful, clean up after
yourself, and don't let the crowing roosters get
