  Lithified cliffs near Poipu, Kauai
by trvlrtom

Leading east from Shipwreck Beach there is an interesting walk along the rugged cliffs. The access is easy, just up the trail from the beach, which has a small parking lot. The cliffs were formed from cemented sand dunes that have been roughly eroded from wind, water and salt over the centuries. It is a rather unusual and interesting scene, surely worth a look if you are in the area. The area is also used by local fishermen.

Directions: The parking lot is reached from an access road between the Hyatt and the golf course.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
