There are many incredible beaches in Kauai -- the photo above was just taken somewhere off the road in Kapaa, but we loved how easy it was to get to, and yet still felt very intimate. When we checked out Polihale Beach, it was a lot more difficult to access with the dirt/gravel roads; it was also overcast and started to rain. When we got there, I was a little underwhelmed, only because it came with such high recommendations. Yes, Polihale is huge and we did have it all to ourselves. But feeling that remote can be a little unnerving since the rain started to grow stronger and we were worried if our 2WD car would make it out. I'd love to come back in better weather conditions and stay for the famous sunset it's known to have.
