Beach Location: The northernmost end of Highway 560, where the road actually ends. If you drive into the ocean, you’ve gone too far.
Amenities: Restrooms, outdoor showers, drinking fountains, a picnic table or two, and trash and recycle bins
Time to snorkel: Summer is best. Dangerous currents often exist here during other seasons.
Kid Friendly: The beach – always. The water – summer is best (see above).
Directions & Parking: Drive north on Highway 56 (Kuhio Highway) until it becomes Highway 560 – a beautifully stunning, winding road. Where this asphalt road ends, you’ll find dirt parking on either side that can be muddy. Ke’e Beach is about 20 yards ahead of you, and the Kalalau Trail begins to your left. If you don’t want to wait for a parking space, arrive an hour or so after sunrise. Bring coffee, if you like – it’s beautiful!
