Barking Sands Beach odditie was in one of Ripley’s book a few years ago. While cruising with Norwegian Cruise Line back in july 2015, we did spend a whole day in the island of Kauai. I rented a car at Nawiliwili Port and drive about 25 miles to Polihale State Park, which is the entry point of Barking Sands Beach. I walked south about one mile on that beach until I reached the Pacific Missile Range Facility operated by the U.S. Navy. No luck ! As they say in The ultimate Kauai Guidebook (Wizard Publications Inc), the sands needs to be REAL dry. Well, the weather was picture perfect when we were there, so I wonder how many days whithout rain is necessary to obtain the right conditions. Since this very beach is not the only beach that barks (easy search on Youtube) I still believe this is true.
P.S.: There is no palm tree at all in this area.
