Kee Beach, Kauai

 

The Kee beach is located at the end of the road is one of the most popular beaches on the

breathtaking island of Kauai. The famous Kalalau Trail starts at Kee beachs western end.

Kee is known for its lagoon, which is teeming with marine life. It is the ideal spot for snorkeling, but swimmers must be wary of the Puku Ulua where the lagoon opens up to the sea. The Puku Ulua has

very strong currents that can pull even experienced swimmers out to the sea.

From the beach, visitors may walk towards nearby Haena where a beautiful view of the Na Pali Coast can be enjoyed. Further up the trail is the Limahuli Stream where the popular Taylor Camp used to be located. The camp was the largest hippie colony on the island of Kauai. It was founded by Elizabeth Taylors brother, and it was home to over a hundred residents until the state of Hawaii condemned the area and evicted them.

Opposite the Limahuli Stream is a path along a rock wall above the reef channel. The path provides a view of the Ka Ulu a Paoa Heiau, which is an old religious site made for Paoa who was a friend of Lohiau, lover of the volcano goddess Pele. Behind the Heiau is another religious shrine. This, on the other hand, is dedicated Laka who is the goddess of hula.
