This little speck of a beach can disappear during high surf. But when the ocean is calm Lawa'i is perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba. Some folks even call this beach the 'Beach House beach', courtesy of the restuarant that resides next door.
To get to Lawa'i take Highway 50 from Lihu'e. Turn right on Maluhia Road just before mile marker 7. At the end of the road, turn left on Koloa Road and then right on Po'ipu Road. Bear right at Lawa'i Road. Lawa'i Beach is on the left across from Prince Kuhio Park.
