Nude sunbathing in Hawaii might be illegal in a technical sense, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen all the time. Here’s where to go to find the prime spots to shed your suit.
Nude Beaches on Kauai
Kauai used to have a couple great nude beaches, but these days one of them is under new ownership and they’re not fond of the clothing-optional thing. The other one is becoming less friendly toward nude sunbathing, too, so proceed with caution.
- Donkey Beach – This is the beach that used to be the best nude beach in Kauai, but which is now heavily patrolled. Undress at your own risk. Off Hwy 56 near mile 11.
- Secret Beach (Kauapea Beach) – This is the one that’s taken over the “best nude beach in Kauai” title, although this one is becoming more heavily patrolled as well. Off Rt 56, a half-mile north of Kilauea.
- Larsen’s Beach – A very private and remote beach where you probably won’t get hassled for disrobing. About 20 miles north of Kapa’a.
