A few more beaches on our last day on Kaua'i


Friday, May 30, 2014

On Wednesday (we left yesterday and flew a large part of the day) we walked some more of Ke Ala Hele Makalea Path. I thought the other part was beautiful but liked this area even more! I wish I had time and energy to walk to whole thing which is I think right now 11 miles or so long but plans are in place to make it longer.

This was by the parking area along the road we started at. It wasn't a larger formal parking area, like some both direction, but it was beautiful and accessible.









The land division in the sidewalk between the areas.



Another rest/picnic area with a beach. And a little further a beach with a lifeguard. One is not very heavily populated except a few fishermen (and of course chickens everywhere) and the next has more swimmers.













Such a beautiful day but a little bit of the off season for tourists. There are some there but will be more in June. I liked it more peaceful though. Probably up in the low 80's by the time the walk ended. Walked about 1/2 hour further then went back.

So green everywhere! This was the Kumukumu stream that ran under another bridge on the path and down into the ocean



Another beautiful beach! Turned around and walked back here.





After that we went to the more popular beach next to condos to rent and other resourses for tourists. Beautiful beach and park and also somewhat busier even if it wasn't the full tourist season.







People wait for the waves to crash over them by the beach



I'm told that there are a lot of monk seals, which are endangered, and turtles sometimes around this area but I didn't get to see either this trip.

It was a great trip and one I'll always remember. I prefer walking along some of these, as we did, to laying on them. Maybe for just a little bit but not the heavier populated areas for me unless maybe my grandkids were with me. But plenty of beach for every taste!

    I have so enjoyed your trip and the photos you've been gracious to share with us... sorry it's coming to an end! Something so peaceful about beaches (when it's not stormy), and something so powerful about the ocean, stormy or not.
