Description:

Honopu beach is a very peculiar beach located along the northwest shore of Kauai, in Hawaii. To get there you need to be a good swimmer, because you won’t be able to get there by any other means. Be sure to gear up with your paddles too. The best time to get there is when the surf is low, avoiding dangerous rip tides and crashing waves.

 But every challenge has its reward, and this beach will be more than willing to offer breathtaking scenery. In 1976, one of the most renowned films “King Kong” was filmed here, along with many other well-known movies and TV shows, like Riders of the Lost Arc, 6 Days/7 Nights and South Pacific among others. The attractiveness of this place is reflected in its distinctive natural arch which stands 90 feet tall and bears the title of the tallest arch in Hawaii.

 The name Honopu means “conch shell”, it is given due to the humming sound produced by the arch every time when the wind blows from the North. The valley surrounding the beach is known to be spiritual and therefore the entire valley is filled with temples and burial grounds where many Hawaiian legends were buried in peace.
