A visit to Polihale Beach Kauai had been on my bucket list for years. It’s an out of way 17 mile stretch of white sand beach on the Western shore of Kauai, where the Na Pali cliffs begin. It’s mostly remote and the access road to it is a muddy pothole filled road. The road often gets rained out so it’s important to check the weather before heading to the beach. For me, this was a challenge but not one that deterred me so one day we got up early and made the trek out.
