Highway 560, North Shore, Kauai
This is the superb snorkeling spot on the North Shore. The beach is 2-miles long, running from Hanalei Colony Resort to Ha'ena Beach Park. The center portion has a huge half-moon shaped reef just 1/8 mile offshore where snorkeling is the best. Deep water caversn are located close to shore making it a great dive site, too. Swimming is often good here with shallow, sandy and calm areas.
