Kekaha Beach is also a good place to be when rains are buffeting the north shore, as this area of the island will most often have ample sunshine. You'll witness the most beautiful sunsets in the world with Ni'ihau and the Lehua islet set as a backdrop. It's also an excellent spot for experienced surfers and body boarders with a number of surf spots along the beach.
This is another area to exercise extreme caution when the surf is high because currents are extremely dangerous. Swimming is not recommended. Kekaha Beach marks the beginning of a 15-mile stretch of golden sand that goes all the way to Polihale State Park. There is a lifeguard and facilities.
Bio about Kicka Witte, Photographer of Kealia Beach, Kauai Image:
I love my job! I am so blessed to be able to do what I love for a living and I never take that for granted. When I step behind the camera, I enter another world and I bring that to you. My favorite subjects are people, they don't know how beautiful they are and it's my job to be the mirror that makes them see their beauty. My second favorite subject is nature, I am just humbled by it's beauty and to go out in the wilderness to merge with it, is where I feel the closest to God. It's really not me taking the pictures, I'm just a vessel pushing a button, there is something larger then little me that takes over when I go behind that lens... no awards or educational diplomas really count, it is the pictures that speak to you and touch your heart that matter. If I made you feel something good, you just made my day. As you admire my photograph, you will guide me in my next photo shoot and therefore I am utterly grateful to you. Thank you and may your day be blessed with love and joy!
