Kauai : Polihale Beach



Polihale significa el hogar del ultramundo. Esta maravillosa playa, se extiende a lo largo de 24km en la costa Oeste de Kauai. Los Hawaiianos creían que los espíritus saltaban de los acantilados que demarcan su extremo Norte, justo antes de partir hacia Po - el ultramundo.


La pena es que la mayoría de la playa está cerrada al público, ya que la marina estadounidense tiene allí un centro de pruebas de misiles llamado Barking Sands Pacific Missile Ranfe Facility. Tiran misiles y los interceptan con otro misil, de forma que la explosión ocurra sobre el mar :S

Polihale Beach (translated as The Home of the Underworld) is one of the longest (24km) and widest (1km) in Hawaii. The traditional hawaiian belief holds Polihale as the place where souls should depart for Po - the underworld. The massive drench of sand ends where the enchanting cliffs that constitute Na Pali coast begin. Ancient hawaiians believed that spirits jumped right off there, before heading on a trip without return. Windy, sunny, huge. Perfect spot for a picnic and extremely careful swimming - hawaiian currents are no joke.



Os venís de paseo?


La inmensidad, contemplada desde el cabo Norte.


Hay gente, pero no llegan a ser multitudes. Kauai es un sitio tranquilo.



El mar, no es ninguna broma.




Next stop… Hanapepe!!
