One Of Hawaii's Most Remote Parks, Polihale State Park Is Only Accessible By 4 Wheeler
Run away from civilization and hide away at Polihale State Park. With miles of white sand beaches, stunning cliffs rising up from the ocean, and a view that stretches on into the horizon forever, this is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Put this on the top of your list for places to go when you’re on Kauai.
On the west end of Kauai is a remote beach that can only be accessed by a long, unmaintained dirt sugarcane road.
Filled with potholes and prone to flooding, this isn’t a road you should take anything less than a four wheel drive vehicle along. The road is so rough many rental car companies forbid their cars to head out on it.
But once you arrive at this remote beach you’ll forget how long it may have taken you to arrive.
The towering cliffs of the Nāpali Coast rise up above white sand beaches. Big, open blue skies show off the horizon line in the far off distance.
And the seventeen miles of white sand beaches at Polihale State Park will stun you.
Beach-comb and look for fun and unusual shells. Search out the sand dunes that can reach a height of 100 feet!
The area holds so much to see and do, and even offers basic amenities to make your trip more enjoyable.
There’s great swimming, but only at Queens Pond. Otherwise, you’ll have to fight dangerous currents and a strong riptide.
Your family can use the park’s facilities, which include restrooms, cold running water, flush toilets, and the wonderful picnic pavilions.
The drive may take a while so be sure to bring everything you need with you. A good beach blanket, sunscreen, food, and water will all make your day at this beach perfect.
There’s nothing like waking up to the sound of the lapping waves.
Spend a night here and wake up to the most beautiful view in the world! Camping permits state at $12.00 a night for Hawaiian residents, and $18.00 a night for tourists.
Spend a day, a weekend, or longer soaking in the peace and serenity this incredible area has to offer.
Put this achingly beautiful spot on your must-see list for summer vacation activities. The whole family will love a trip out to Polihale State Park.
