Kapa’a Beach Sunrise, Kauai
Photograph by Matt Wade
Kapa’a Beach on Kauai’s eastern shore catches the first rays of morning light as the sun rises from beneath the ocean. Lined with hanging trees, beach naupaka bushes, soft sand and Pacific driftwood, Kapa’a beach sets the scene daily for inspiration and refreshment.
Kapa’a's narrow beach is less visited by beach goers and therefore affords solitude and quietness.
The weather patterns here often mean clouds line the horizon, helping to create opportunities for great morning or ocean storm pictures. It can also be windy throughout the day on this side of Kauai, which windsurfers use to their advantage as the take to the ocean here in larger numbers.Kapa'a Beach Sunrise, Kauai,
