Browse our new 2019 Shipwrecks Beach Rentals. Shipwrecks Beach, located on the edge of Keoniloa Bay gets its name from remains of an old wooden shipwreck that used to be visible from the beach. The shipwreck has not been seen since the early 1980s and it's unclear whether the remains are still there, but one thing is for sure the mystery makes this location very exciting. The beach is also famous for a massive cliff that hangs out over the water between 35' and 40' high. Our beach bungalows, cottages, townhomes, and condos include luxury kitchens, open porches, and great ocean views. When you stay in a Shipwrecks Beach vacation rental, Kauai’s best beaches are right out your front door.
