Polihale State Park


Polihale State Park is the end of highway around the island on the west shore. You can't go any farther north on this part of the island without a boat. There is where the Na Pali Coast starts from the west side of the island.  From here to the south, there are 17 miles of white sand beaches that are average 300 feet wide. Sand dunes can get up to 100 feet high.

Although surfs were very high on this part of the island, we did find one good swimming spot - the Queen's Pond. It's semi-protected by reefs. The bottom of the pond is one sheer piece of rock. It's like a swimming pool except with waves. The beaches were here beautiful but surprisingly secluded. Rain was supposedly rare. Today, it rained. It also rained on all other parts of the island too so there would have been no escape for us anyhow.
