Ke’e Beach (pronounced Keh-AY) is located at the end of the road. and the farthest you can drive on the north shore.  Ke’e is protected by a reef that makes it a safe place for snorkeling and swimming. Ke’e Beach is also the beginning of the Napali Coast and the Kalalau trail that leads to Hanakapiai and Kalalau Beach. This special spot is beautiful at sunset. During the summer months the water can be as calm and clear as a swimming pool.

During winter months dangerous conditions include high surf and strong currents.  The facilities at the beach include restrooms and showers. There is no cell reception, but there is a payphone.

The parking at this beach is limited and it is advisable to park in the dirt parking lot about a quarter mile from the end of the road. This is the overflow from the parking at the roads end. By 9 am the parking lot at Ke’e is usually full with hikers setting out on the Kalalau trail.
