A quick reliable guide!
This is app is a quick resource for current conditions on Kauai. You can easily find a beach that suits your interest, whether snorkeling, boogie boarding, or surfing. Knowing If lifeguards are available and knowing if the waters pose any risks is extremely helpful. I always recommend this app to all my guests.

Updates about every three days
Got this app to see the surf and weather conditions on all the beaches on the island but the app only updates every three days or so. For instance I’m writing this on the morning of April 16th and the reports are all as of 1:20 pm April 13th. How is that supposed to help me today? Maybe there’s an in app purchase of a time machine that I missed! Otherwise the map of the island is helpful.

A must have for a safe and fun visit to Kauai
There is a lot of misinformation about beach safety on Kauai and many people have died from sheer ignorance or foolishness. This app can help address the first condition. I recommend it highly!

Know Before You Go!
Many people drown because water seems calm at first. This app is the next best thing to asking a local.

Ocean report !
The Ocean report doesn’t update everyday. Without that you miss out on good snorkel days or drive 45 mins to find it blown out. I love the information provided. Just needs to be updated AT LEAST once a day.

Great app for safe swimming and snorkeling
The map is a great way to recognize beaches where it's not really safe to go in the water - red pins - and you can filter to see the beaches that are child friendly. I like to use this app for a quick check on wave heights and water visibility before I decide which beach to go to snorkel. I also find the Kauai Beach Guide is very handy when I am telling someone about a beach I think they might like to visit. I show them where it is on the map, then point out the best areas to get in the water using the pictures and let them read about the beach. The pictures of the beaches seem to help them decide if that's where they want to go. I have this on my iPad and it works really well. I tapped the 2X in the lower right corner of the screen and it filled it up and stays full screen now whenever I open it. The photo resolution is still great at 2X.

Outstanding!!! Highly recommended for travelers and residents!
The Kauai Beach Guide App is a perfect guide for both Kauai residents and travelers. The app is very easy to navigate and it delivers the perfect amount of information about Kauai's beaches with Aloha. Beach Toolz has delivered a winner here with safety being a primary focus of the application. All beach goers will appreciate the ability to locate beaches based on activities, location and safety. Beaches are flagged with color-coded pins indicating whether swimming is recommended or not. Beautiful pictures of each beach, a facilities list and historical facts connected to each beach area make the app useful for planning a Kauai trip. The local weather and ocean report are integrated into the app - I was able to eliminate looking at two separate apps! As as Kauai resident who visits Kauai's beaches daily, the Kauai Beach Guide is the only app I need! Thank you Beach Toolz for a great app! Aloha!!!

This is a fabulous app with real time features, GPS, Safety tips, and loads of helpful information. It is easy to use and packed with information on each screen. It is a "must have" if you are planning to be on Kauai. It is also a helpful addition if you live there. Current weather and surf reports help to plan your day. If I see that it is raining on North Shore and clear on the West side, I know I should be planning the day to be in Waimea Canyon rather than in Hanalei. If surf is big on North Shore, I should be snorkeling in Poipu rather than up at Tunnels. And if your not familiar with the beaches and other attractions on Kauai, you will be with this app in your pocket.

Everyone visiting Kauai should have this!
I’ve lived on Kauai for over 20 years, and also run a vacation rental. I can’t tell you how grateful I am that someone created this app! I now recommend it to all my guests! It’s easy to use and free. People so often just go blindly to whatever beach is nearby, or their friends or guidebooks recommended, without understanding that beach conditions change, and can change radically, throughout the year and even the day. This app could save lives. You’d be crazy not to get it. And no, despite the small size of this island, I don’t know the developer. ;-)

Excellent App - Learned things I didn't know after coming for 10 years
I've been coming to Kauai for over 10 years and was surprised that I learned so much from this app. Who knew. I really like the user interface and the quality of the graphics. Having the Ocean Report is fabulous (so I can know before I go to the beach). Just to clarify an earlier reviewer commented that it would be nice to have water clarity. It is there under ocean report (in the column labeled VIS). Thanks so much for a very useful tool to help explore Kauai.

Terrific information!
I have visited Kauai numerous times over the years, and this app is providing me with a lot of new and interesting information. Love the history bites, info about the local sealife - so much i never knew! Makes visiting the beaches even more interesting. The GPS, ocean report, and safety info add wonderful dimension to the app, so i can get rid of some of my other apps and just use this one! Thank you for creating such a user-friendly, safety-oriented beach guide - hope you do the other islands!

Aloha Kakou! If you're looking for info about our beaches this is the App for you! I live here on Kauai and I love the history information on each of the beaches.

This App a lot of good information to help you decide where you're going to enjoy our ocean during your stay! Aloha a hui hou!

Simple and Reliable
This guide is perfect for the visitor and the local who are not familiar with the island of Kaua'i and its waters. This app is comprehensive, navigable, and helpful. Although some experienced local water goers would be a bit apprehensive to some of the color choices of pins-- orange and red pins for Kalapaki beach on a fairly calm 2-3 foot wave type of day, this app is obviously geared to help the inexperienced water goer, because these 2-3 foot waves could be seen as large as 4-5 foot waves to the inexperienced visitor/local. Now, to have a feature that tracks shark activity... Kidding!

This is a wonderful app! Lots of useful information about beaches PLUS an update report on the conditions of the day per beach. I'm a local, my friend's son was rescued yesterday after getting swept out to sea! Had they been able to know the conditions they might have been able to avoid this situation!

So helpful!
As a resident of Kauai I make good use of this app personally. We also have a lot of visitors and it graphically explains how to find the beaches, which ones fit their level of water skills and brings home our concerns about water safety to them. Love the links to other sites. Big mahalo!

Great app for getting quick and pertinent information about beach access and amenity information and current surf/weather information. Doesn't try to overdue it with too much clutter. Used it every day since I've been in the island.

Wow! Glad to have this app!
As a visitor not knowing about where to go for the best snorkeling I was impressed by the info in this app. And the ocean report got me to the right place each day for the best conditions for snorkeling. Can't say enough -- super app!!! Easy to use. It’s now endorsed by the Kauai Lifeguard Association.

Great App. Could Be Greater!
Love this app and recommend it highly to all Kauai visitors. App developers need to find a way to post the CURRENT surf conditions. Posting info that is a day out of date is pointless and causes users to leave the app to find this current info elsewhere, like NOAA. Tweak this weakness and your great app will be even greater for visitors and locals alike.

Great potential, leaves me wanting more!
I like the user interface. Good frame work that can use a lot of fleshing out. So many more beaches to be added for it to be useful to residents or long term visitors. Adding uptodate tide info would expand use to kayakers, paddle boarders and fishermen. Nice job so far. Needs to be completed.

Kauai Beach Guide
I really love this app. I used it every day during my stay in Kauai in March 2016. The information proved very accurate and useful as I like to spend a lot of time in the water. The only complaint I have is sometimes the updates are not always made in a timely manner especially on the weekends.

An excellent app for the rabid beachhound. The information is updated every morning so that you can plan your day for sunning or snorkeling. The beaches can vary a great deal, depending on the wind direction. What was perfect one day might have 10 foot swells the next. Get it now!

Nice, easy-to-use. Good graphics & easy to navigate. Good reference for both first-time visitors to Kauai and anybody who lives here or visits often. Knowing swell height at each spot is a plus. Water clarity would be a bonus.

Missing many beaches
This is a nicely designed app but why is it so incomplete?! There are Many awesome beaches in Kauai not listed in the app. My theory is that this app is intended to keep tourists away from those beaches, even though they're listed in guide books, on the web, and other Kauai apps. 😔
