Wake up with the sun and ride the waves in solitude, perfect your balance atop a stand-up paddleboard, or feel the spray on your face as you glide through a barrel on your boogie board. If a slower pace is more your style, relax in the shade of your beach umbrella and watch the action unfold in front of you. Options abound at Kalapaki Beach, conveniently located in Lihue.
Convenient Kalapaki Rentals
Providing all the gear you need, Kauai Beach Boys is conveniently located right at Kalapaki. This means you can rent a surfboard or stand up paddleboard without worrying about how to transport it. They also offer beach umbrellas and chairs for a full day of ocean-side relaxation. If you’d like some guidance rather than going it alone, they have a long history of providing surf lessons since 1983. They can also help you learn the fastest growing water sport – stand up paddleboarding. If you’d like to try something different, paddle and surf simultaneously with traditional canoe surfing.
Kalapaki Beach is a launching point for catamaran cruises, where you can view Ninini Point Lighthouse from the water, visit Menehune Fish Pond, cruise alongside dolphins and sea turtles, and photograph breaching whales (in season).
When you’ve had your fill of fun in the sun, you will not have to walk far to savor a meal at Duke’s Kauai, located right on the shoreline. Duke’s serves up local favorites and has the best salad bar on the island. Savor the catch of the day baked “Duke’s Style” and sip a glass of wine as you watch the sky turn shades of pink and gold at your ocean-side table (reservations encouraged). There are several other restaurants within walking distance from Kalapaki Beach, such as Café Portofino, Kalapaki Beach Hut, Mariachi’s Authentic Mexican Restaurant, and Bamboo Grill & Sushi. Take your pick!
