Kalalau Beach, Kauai
Photograph by James Sor
Kalalau Beach on the Hawaii island of Kauai offers a stone beach walk buttressed by high sea cliffs covered in native plants.
Located at the end of Kalalau Trail, this Kauai gem is a site to behold.
From the photographer:
The reward for surviving The Kalalau Trail is Kalalau Beach. Imagine this scene:
- majestic tall (Na Pali) sea cliffs serving as backdrop for a secluded long sandy beach
- goats roaming the dramatic fluted ridges above causing frequent rockslides
- legends of Hawaiian chiefs whose bones are scattered in the cliffs above
- hippies who’ve lost track of time and nudists showering underneath a cascading waterfall
This eclectic mixture is exactly what you’ll find at Kalalau Beach and the reason Kalalau is really like no place else in the world!
