What brings people to Kauai? Is it the lush greenery that lines Wailua River all the way to its pristine beaches such as Hanalei Bay and Poipu Beach? Or is it the Waimea Canyon — often called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” — and historic towns such as Koloa and Hanapepe? Perhaps it is all of these and more.

All of these probably contribute to making Kauai one of the more popular places to get married, and while tying the knot at anywhere other than a beach sounds unique enough, Kauai’s beaches truly offer something out of the ordinary if you’re thinking about a Hawaii beach wedding.

Let’s take a look at our top 3 kauai beach wedding locations:

Tunnels Beach:

Aside from the crystal clear waters and the white sand, the mountain backdrop of this beautiful beach adds a different element to this exotic location.

Shipwrecks beach:

Named after a wooden shipwreck that is now long gone, this beach is perfect for those who are looking for something other than the usual green mountain backdrop.

Secret Beach

Also called Kauapea, Secret Beach offers one of the most pristine stretches of beaches on Kauai. The dark rocks that pepper some parts of the beach also adds a dramatic effect to your wedding photos, like the ones below.
