A beautiful drive along the coastline of Kauai’s North Shore brings you to the end of the road…literally! After several single lane bridge crossings and a narrow winding road you will reach Ha’ena State Park and Ke’e Beach. The road ends here and the 11 mile Kalalau Valley trail begins. Most visitors will take a quick look and turn around but Ke’e beach is just breathtaking and worth spending some time to explore.
