Kauai Pictures - Shipwrecks Beach - Picture of Kauai
Kauai Pictures - Shipwrecks Beach - Picture of Kauai - is one of Kauai’s most coveted beaches for surfing and windsurfing, but non-surf enthusiasts will certainly find fulfillment here as well. There’s an easy hiking trail that leads to some amazing not-to-be-missed sites.
One of them is Shipwrecks Beach, located in front of the Grand Hyatt below the Poipu Bay Golf Course. There is a public parking lot but it fills up fast so get there early. The beach is a beautiful crescent shaped shoreline with white sand. The water here is not the best for swimming as there are sometimes big waves and strong currents. There are some cliffs on the eastern portion of the beach that have a 30-40 foot jump into the ocean, if you dare.
Sunsets from Shipwrecks Beach are some of the most remarkable. Shipwrecks Beach also marks the beginning of the Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, an easy coastal hike that will take you past beaches, bays, streams, lava formations, monk seals, and much, much more. Be aware that this side is more exposed to rough waves and wind.
Bio about Kicka Witte, Photographer of Shipwrecks 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!
