Best Beaches in Kauai for Beginner Surfers

September 25, 2013

The sport of surfing is a Hawaii tradition.

On the island of Kauai you can find some great surf spots worth visiting on your vacation.  Don’t know how to surf?  No problem.  You can take a surfing lesson in Kauai or hone your skills at one of the beaches with perfect conditions for beginner surfers. If you’re a beginner surfer some of the best surfing beaches in Kauai include:

  • Hanalei Bay: Beginner surfers flock to Hanalei Bay for the shallow sandy bottom, gentle swells and excellent conditions.
  • Kalapaki: Gentle rolling waves that make it easy to get up on your board and stay there make Kalapaki a good choice.
  • Kealia:  Year round surf and sandy breaks at Kealia let novice surfers practice their skills at any time.
  • Kiahuna Beach: Located with Poipu Beach Park, Kiahuna is the most popular beach to take surf lessons for its calm conditions.

Keep in mind where you surf has a lot to do with ever-changing surf conditions.   Learn to read the water before you dive in, and check with a lifeguard if there is one on hand.  When in doubt, though, don’t go out!  Safety is a key component of becoming a proficient surfer.   

If you’d like to take a surfing lesson in Kauai, we recommend Kauai Surf School, Hawaiian Surfing Adventures and Garden Island Surf Lessons

Experience the sport of kings on your next Kauai vacation.  Surf’s up!
