Po'ipu Road, Po'ipu, South Kauai
This beach was named for an old, wooden shipwreck that has long since disappeared. The hill (pictured here) is a lithified sand dune called Makawehi Point and is a popular fishing site. Hiking in this area is excellent along the cliffs and beach. Swimming, however, should be left to only the most skilled due to strong currents and high surf. Surfers, boogie boarders, body surfers and windsurfers greatly enjoy the challenge that this beach presents.
