The Pools of Mokolea
The Pools of Mokolea are located on the eastern shore of Kauai. They consist of a shelf of lava that extends our and around the peninsula. On the way out, there is a pool that is connected to the ocean. The pool is what you see here. Under the right conditions, the surf comes raging up onto the shelf, washes around and into the pool and is then returned to the sea via the underground tunnel. It is totally thrilling to be on the shelf when the surf is raging, to stand in the wash and capture the beauty and power of the ocean. Not recommended to do if you are not careful or if you do not have a buddy with you to help keep an eye on the surf.
