Fuji Beach, also known as Baby Beach Kapaa, is an excellent place for children to swim and explore tide pools. Located near the beginning of the Kauai Coastal Path in Kapaa town. Fuji Beach is best during light-trade wind days. Here is little shade, and it is best at lower tides. Kite surfing and diving are enjoyed beyond the protection of the reef and shallow wading area.
Fuji Beach is an easy spot to pull over and enjoy lunch. There are a few picnic tables, shaded areas, and a shower to rinse off. At the North end of this stretch of beach is the start of the paved Kauai bike and pedestrian path – Ke Ala Hele Makalae Coastal Path.
You can also find restrooms and drinking fountains on the north end of the beach near the canal.
