Relax at Tunnels Beach, Kauai

Details

Added by Christin Healey

Tunnels Beach offers a great inner reef area with calmer waters for swimming and kids. The outer reef offers snorkeling and diving.

Makua, aka Tunnels, is known for its incredible mountain scenery. This beach also offers great snorkeling, where people will usually see turtles. Public parking, bathrooms and showers are available at Haena Beach Park located west of Tunnels. Be sure to head to the beach early, parking on the town's streets can be a little challenging.

One Of The Best Places To Go Snorkeling

Loved the beach + the drive to it! It can be confusing once you get there on what beach is actually tunnels (it's where all the coral is, not the farthest left side of the beach) but once you find It; you'll get crystal clear waters, turtles and a snorkelers heaven of all kids of fishes.

Best Sunset Spot
