What to Expect
Po'ipu Road, South Kauai
These unusual cliff formations were formed from sand dunes that have been weathered by wind and surf over the centuries. Terrific hiking trails traverse the coastal area for about 1/2 mile.
Take Highway 50 east from Hanapepe. Turn right on Highway 520 toward Po'ipu. At the end of 520, turn right on Koloa Road and then left on Po'ipu Road. Park in the lot near the Hyatt Hotel and take the trail between this hotel and the Po'ipu Bay Resort golf course. OR, go to the east end of Shipwreck Beach to access the cliff trails.
Easy access and hike
Beautiful and unusual coastal views
Fossils may be seen in the sand - DO NOT REMOVE them
