Moloa'a Bay Beach - Kauai

The swimming at Moloa’a Beach is ok during calm seas, but when the tide is up you won’t want to swim here. For the best experience check out southeast side of the beach rather than the northwest side.

This is a pretty beach, framed by hilly dunes and green vegetation. When the ocean is calm, swimming is possible and best on the right (southeast) side of the bay.

Locals flock to Moloa’a Beach because it is usually without a crowd. In fact, this beach is hard to beat when the sea is calm and it is a sunny day.
