Ke'e Beach Trees, Kauai

Ke’e Beach Trees, Kauai

Kauai’s Ke’e Beach makes many “10 best beaches” lists for its beautiful sand, sunsets, ocean, and lush valley. We agree. But we also think there’s even more to it than that. As people gaze out toward the horizon, the tall trees with outstretched arms surrounding the beach are often overlooked.

From the Photographer:

“While I was waiting for the sun to go down at Ke’e Beach on Kaua’i, I snapped this before I had to hustle into position to get the sunset. Nothing spectacular, but I couldn’t resist the evening light on the interesting trees.”

These trees sit behind the beach at the end of the road on Kauai’s North Shore. Between Limahuli Stream and the Na Pali Coast, Ke’e’s tropical forest is filled with ironwood trees, coconut palms, ti, guava, and more. So don’t forget to occasionally look uphill and notice the unnoticed.

You can check out the more typical, ocean view of Ke’e Beach at sunset or Ke’e Beach bay.

About Matt Wade

Matt was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and attended Colorado State University. From his earliest memories as a child, he had an interest in art. "Art has always served as a respite from life’s demands and a way to explore parts of the world that I don't normally experience in my daily routine. For this reason, I’ve focused mostly on landscape with several artistic mediums over the years. The inherent abstract quality in the forms and shapes in wilderness, combined with the right light and atmosphere, create scenes that surpass anything I could imagine. If I’m successful in capturing these moments, though they can last mere minutes, seconds or even less, they serve as a reminder that our lives exist in context with something much larger."
