Highway 560, North Shore, Kauai

Located literally at the end of the road, Ke'e Beach is probably the most visited beach on Kauai. The famed Kalalau Trail begins at the western end of the beach. Several movies and min-series have been filmed here such as The Thorn Birds and Castaway Cowboys. Ke'e's inviting lagoon is teaming with fish and perfect for snokeling. Beware, however of the Puka Ulua, an opening on he left side from the lagoon to the sea. Currents can be very strong here. People often fish for the large, prized Ulua fish in this area. A short walk towards Ha'ena provides a panoramic view of the Na Pali Coast. Keep walking toward the Limahuli Stream. This is where Taylor Camp was located - the largest, most noted hippie colony on Kauai. Founded by the brother of actress Elizabeth Taylor, this colony had up to 100 residents before the state condemned the land and evicted them. In the opposite direction, walk down the path above the reef channel along a low rock wall. Look uphill to the site of Ka Ulu a Paoa Heiau. This ancient religious site was dedicated to Paoa, a friend of the legnedary Lohiau, lover of Pele, the volcano goddess. A shrine to Laka, goddess of the hula, is also located in a hillside cleft behind the heiau platform.
