ScouterHerb & MrsB: We have decided that as the area it was in became a Paintball area and is now well used for that, we are not going to replace it. It did have a good run.

Geocache Description:

Located just a few yards inland from Nukolii Beach, at the end of Marine Base Road (Un-marked road at the south end of Wailua Golf Course). This road, while rough, can be accessed by car when dry. We would travel it with caution if it has been raining a lot. You can also park farther South at the Hilton Kauai Beach Resort Hotel ( formerly Radisson) or beyond and walk down the beach to the cache site.
Cache is a 1 quart Lock-N-Lock.


This is number 2 in our SH&MB's Golf Tour Series. To view others click here!

Nukolii Beach is a 2 mile long part of a line of beaches running from Wailua Bay in the north, to Hanama’ulu Bay in the south. The beach itself runs from Lydgate Park in the North to a Parking Lot south of the Hilton (Radisson) Hotel.

It is a popular spot for ATV and 4 wheel Drive access to the Beach and surrounding Dunes. Thus watch for Muggles!

It is a beautiful long stretch of Beaches to walk, enjoy the seascape and watch for Whales.

An interesting note is that many Maps show a ship wreck off shore at about N22 00.881, W 159 20.064. One possibility is that it could be the "Okanagan" a bald-headed four masted schooner of 721 tons and 950 M capacity. It was built in 1895 and was wrecked on Ahukini Point December 24, 1919. However we can not find any confirmation of this or location of the "Okanagan". If anyone finds more information, please let us know!

Be aware the ocean off the beach has very strong currents and thus it is not normally a safe beach for Swimming!

Small note on cache maintenance: Hanapaa has graciously agreed to assist with maintenance. Thanks!
