Just west of the town of Kaunakakai is the Royal Kapuaiwa Coconut Plantation. Signs warn of falling coconuts. They drop from the tops of the tall trees, well over fifty feet overhead. Heed the warnings. Drive west, just past the grove, and turn onto the short street heading down to the beach. Park at the end and walk the safer route along the water’s edge to find your sunrise or sunset locations on the beach, framed in palms.
