Photo Friday: Hiking Near Shipwreck Beach, Kauai

overcast 80 °F

It was a drizzly, cloudy morning in Kauai. Dreary yes, but cold, definitely not. Despite overcast skies, Poipu was near 80 degrees in the early morning. Without the sun beating down on us, we figured a walk along the coast was the perfect way to spend the day. Just north of The Grand Hyatt and Shipwreck Beach sits an interesting and unique landscape, complete with petrified sand dunes, lava rock, and cliffs jutting out of the ocean. We didn't come completely prepared however. Expecting the trail from Shipwreck Beach to lead along an overlook of the ocean, we were surprised to find ourselves scrambling about the rocky coast. Despite gashes in our toes from one too many encounters with lava rock, we took the trail as far as it would take us along the coast line and the views were spectacular.



Oh and the guy practically throwing himself off the cliff was fighting for what appeared to be the world's smallest fish. Go figure!
