“Amazing wave action!”
Review of Shipwreck Beach

Shipwreck Beach

Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018

We spent about half a day at Shipwreck beach where we thoroughly enjoyed watching the waves and the (crazy!) people jumping off the rock at the edge of the bay. Parking is a bit limited but not impossible. Also, the parking was free. There is a bathroom facility located just behind the beach (short walk) which is convenient. Pack a lunch and spend part of your day at this lovely beach.

It’s an amazing beach though parking is at a premium. Saw whales and dolphins it’s beautiful must go on island.

This was a very pretty beach. We ate dinner here. The sand was a lot softer than some of the other beaches. It wasn't too crowded and there is a short hike that you can take up onto some cliffs to see the shoreline. Some men were up there deep sea fishing. You can see for quite a ways. It was pretty quite up there so if you wanted to just sit on a rock and watch the waves beat upon the rocks you could. We didn't go into the water but we did sit on the beach and listen to the waves.

This is not an ideal area for swimming, but the view from the top of the rock was nice. There were a lot of locals fishing around here and there were a lot of windsurfers too.

This is another stunning beach on Kauai. The negative is the dangerous shore break and rocks, definitely not good for swimming especially for small children. This is a great starting point to hike the cliffs to Mahaulepu.
