Beach Weddings on Kauai – North Shore Beaches

Ke’e Beach provides amazing coastline views and sits at the gateway to the Na Pali Coast, while Makua Beach (Tunnels) is a beautiful white sand beach surrounded by verdant mountains.

Nearby Haena Point provides a private location with great views of Bali Hai (Makana Mountain), and Lumahai is accessed by a jungle-like trail that leads down to a secluded beach.

The crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay provides expansive views of the Hanalei mountains on a beautiful crescent-shaped bay. Kalihiwai Bay on the north shore is also crescent-shaped beach and is surrounded by green cliffs. Anini Bay provides idyllic white sand beaches on a calm bay with views of Kilauea Lighthouse.

Beach Weddings on Kauai – South, East and West Side Beaches

Kauai south shore wedding beaches include the rustic and secluded Kawailoa Bay as well as Keoneloa Bay near the Hyatt Regency. Poipu Bay enjoys expansive views and scenic sunsets while the Beach House lawn provides a nice wedding site fronting the Beach House restaurant.
