Kekaha is the first portion of the 15-mile long stretch of beach in West Kauai called Polihale Beach. The sand here is comfortable but the water is raucous. Never go in unless it looks very calm. It is a nice spot for experienced surfers and wind surfers. Only occasionally is there a lifeguard on duties. Restrooms are available.
To reach Kekaha take Highway 50 west from Waimea. The turn off for Kekaha Beach Park is located between mile markers 26 and 27.
