NileGuide Expert tip:
Heading east on Kamehameha Highway, take the first left turn onto Ke Iki Road, right after Shark's Cove. Look for parking along the right side of the road on worn out sandy spots.
Ke Iki Beach. Ahhhh, you'll get off track just thinking about it once you've been there. It's about a mile long, and is made of fine, bright white sand, bright blue water, and enough space to comfortably fit everyone who wants to go there. But luckily, even though weekends and holidays here are definitely far from empty, it seems to be much less crowded than just about any other beach on the North Shore. Maybe it's because of the very limited parking. Or maybe it's because during the winter when the waves are huge, you absolutely, definitely, don't swim here.
But it's amazing, and is a great place to sun, take a long stroll, take in the sunset, and in the summer swim all you want (just remember there's no lifeguard here). The beach is so wide and long that you can feel lost in the sand, so bring water, sunblock, and even some snacks. Ke Iki is by far one of the North Shore's most beautiful beaches.
