The beautiful northern shore of Kaua'i Island is dotted with beaches. Stunning Haena Beach is one of the easiest to access as there is a parking lot. The three beaches, Haena, Makua and Tunnels, then lies as white pearls on a string with cragged Makana Ridge (Bali Hai) as a photogenic backdrop. The middle section is popular with resting monk seals, while Tunnels Beach at the tip is considered one of the best snorkeling spots on Kaua'i - particularly during summer, when the sea is at its calmest. Note that swimming can be dangerous with both strong currents and maiming shore breaks, so like everywhere else in Hawai'i: "If in doubt, don't go out!"
