Kipu Kai Beach - Kauai

This beach is difficult to access because you can only get to Kipu Kai by boat because the road across the mountains is too difficult even for most off road vehicles. 

The majestic Hoary Head mountain ridge frames Kipu Kai beach. Sand is golden brown. Many years ago, the local population of Nene, the endangered Hawaiian goose, disappeared from Kauai, but thanks to the efforts of local cattle rancher J.W. Waterhouse, these rare birds may occasionally be seen at Kipu Kai.

You may also be able to access this beach via horseback.
