Old Mana Road, West Kauai
The last beach on the road, this is Kauai's westernmost point. It is an extension of Barking Sands Beach making it Hawaii's longest beach with 17 miles of sparking white sand! From the northern end of the beach, the beginning cliffs of the Na Pali can be seen. The sand dunes along this beach can reach up to 100-feet in height. The entire beach is unprotected from the ocean so surf and currents can be fierce here. On the northern end of the beach is Polihale State Park. One area on the 300-foot wide beach is safe for swimming and that is Queen's Pond, a small, encircled reef area. It is located on the south part of Polihale Beach going towards Barking Sands Beach.
