Kekaha, known as "God's Country", is a small coastal town on the extreme west coast of Kauai, "The Garden Island." Kauai is the fourth largest and oldest of the seven Hawaiian islands. The town of Kikaha is a rural, agricultural community whose major industry is a 5000 acre sugar plantation.
Miles of secluded white sand beaches surround nearby Kekaha vacation rentals and the gateway to Kokee, a cool, mountainous State Park. It is also home to Waimea Canyon, "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" and the Kalalau Valley. Kekaha is known for its year-round warm, dry climate with an average year-round temperature in the 70's.
Kekaha Beach County Park has access to picnic tables, toilets, grills as well as miles of golden sand beaches. It is ideal for picnicking and sunbathing. The sunsets here are magical, and the beach itself is spectacular. Further west in Mana, are even more miles of secluded beaches such as Polihale, Canetop, Queen's Pond, and Barking Sands.
The entire Kekaha beach is exposed to open ocean (which brings strong currents). The undertow here is strong, and there are usually many breakers. Caution is advised. This is a popular spot, when the water is calm, to teach the local children to surf.
There are miles of secluded, white sand beaches where dune buggies are often heard racing along (just off Highway 50). Vacation rentals by owner in Hawaii offer the best opportunity for visitors to feel like a local and enjoy this beautiful part of the world.
