Kauai Pictures - Kee Beach
Kauai Pictures - Kee Beach - About a mile past Tunnels Beach at the end of Kuhio Hwy is Ke’e Beach Park. This will be the last beach you can reach by car on Kauai’s North Shore. It offers more awe-inspiring views being the closest beach to the Na Pali Coast. It does get very crowded after mid- morning, so show up early as the parking lot is not suited to accommodate all the visitors.
Ke'e Beach is a great snorkeling spot when the waters are calm. It has a protected sandy lagoon but at times it is known to have strong currents. Appropriately named “Ke’e”, which translates to “avoidance”. Please always exercise caution. When in doubt, don’t go out. The famous Kalalau trail starts nearby and is the only land access into the Na Pali Coast State Park.
At the east end of Ke'e Beach Park the Limahuli stream empties into the ocean making for some good fishing. There are also some ancient Hawaiian sites to discover here as well. With a lifeguard and the most marvelous sunsets, this beach is a must see.
Bio about Brad Dawber, Photographer of Kee Beach Image:
Brad began his photo career while still in high school in Orange County, Calif. His love of surfing inspired him to capture images along the Southern California coastline. In 1972 he dropped out of Golden West College in Huntington Beach to take on a full time job as "ad guy" and photographer at Surfing Magazine. This was a dream job for a young surfer and a great stepping-stone. In 1974 a change was in the midst and Brad moved to Mammoth Lakes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. He wanted to be a ski bum for "one season". Surrounded by all this beauty made it difficult to leave. He quickly took to ski photography and became a photographer for Powder Magazine. At the same time he was working the ultimate dream job as a heli-ski guide. This gave him the best conditions possible to photograph.
In 2002 Brad and his wife Pamela moved to the north shore of Kauai, one of the most beautiful places on earth! In 2003 they sold both of their galleries in Mammoth & also opened Nani Kauai Gallery in Princeville. the natural beauty of Kauai gives Brad his inspiration to capture the dramatic landscapes. One of Brad's greatest successes & joys is chartering helicopters for his aerial photography.
