If you’re traveling to Kauai as a family with small children, you’ll want to be sure to know all the best beaches for your keiki (children). Many of Kauai’s beaches experience rough shore breaks, making wading and swimming unsafe for children. Fuji Beach, however, is an excellent beach for families with little ones.
Locally known as Baby Beach, Fuji Beach has a reef and rock barrier that forms a long, narrow, protected swimming area. Especially during low tide, the water can be as calm as bath water – perfect for toddlers to splash about. Your child will love exploring the tide pools to search for fish, crabs, and other tiny sea creatures. Kite boarders can often be seen out past the outer reef. Shaded areas and picnic tables make this a great spot for a picnic and a full day of fun. Restrooms and drinking fountains are also available on the north end of the beach near the pedestrian bridge over the river.
Plan Your Fuji Beach Outing
Fuji Beach is located on Moanakai Road in Kauai’s east coast town of Kapa’a just south of Kapa’a Beach Park. If you’re staying at one of our vacation rentals at Pono Kai, Baby Beach is in convenient walking distance.
Around the Area
Kapa’a has the island’s widest variety of restaurants and shops, so you’ll have plenty to choose from before or after your day at Baby Beach. Just across the main road, you will find Kauai Pasta, Tiki Tacos, and Verde, several of Kauai’s delicious local restaurants. The start of the Kauai Coastal Path is also located right at the beach’s north end near the restrooms. Combine your day at Fuji Beach with a day cycling this paved multiuse path that is great for families. Fuji in Hawaii is located between Kauai Cycle and Hele On Kauai, two bike rental shops offering low-cost rentals, including beach cruisers, kids bikes, helmets, and bike trailers for children not yet able to ride independently.
We have vacation rentals at nearly 30 properties on Kauai’s north, east, and south shores. Staying at one of our east coast properties such as Banyan Harbor, Lae Nani, Pono Kai, Kauai Beach Resort, Kaha Lani, or Islander on the Beach will put you in close proximity for enjoying Fuji Beach and all of the coconut coast’s best shops and restaurants.
