Unless you’re an expert surfer, bodyboarder or bodysurfer, keep your feet dry at ‘Shipwrecks’ but come for an invigorating walk along the half-mile crescent of light-gold sand. You’ll have some company, as the Grand Hyatt overlooks much of the beach along Keoneloa Bay. Row after row of waves crash close to shore, giving this beach a rugged, untamed feel. Toward the left of the bay, to the east, looms Makawehi Point , a gigantic lithified sand dune, which you can ascend in 10 minutes. West of Shipwreck Beach is Makahuena Point , the southernmost tip of Kauaʻi; this rocky cliff overlooking crashing waves is today covered with oceanfront condos.
