Chinaman Hat Stretched Canvas Prints

Chinaman Hat Stretched Canvas Prints Mokolii, also known among locals as Chinaman’s Hat because of its shape, is a popular spot for taking pictures on Oahu’s windward coast. The small island is located at the north end of Kaneohe Bay, offshore of Kualoa Regional Beach Park. It’s the small island that looks like a rice picker hat. At low tide the water is waist high but at high tide it will be neck high or higher. You may have heard that there are supposedly hammerhead sharks all over these waters. On the back side of the island there is a beautiful small cove with a tiny sandy beach. It is also called Chinaman’s Hat because of its cone shape, which resembles the peasant’s hat worn in rural China. Besides a few lonely palm trees and two small beaches, there isn’t anything else here. But it is still a great place to visit if you like adventures and would like to have an island to yourself once in your life. Mokolii Island, one of Windward Oahu's most famous landmarks, lies off the park. Its creation is explained in a legend about Hiiaka, a sister of Pele, the goddess of the volcano. Mokolii Island, 500 yards offshore, is park property and the only offshore island around Oahu, besides Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay that is not part of the Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary. While most people only know Chinaman’s Hat from postcards, wall calendars, or from looking at it from a distance, its real charm is accessible only to those who actually go there to explore it. Chinaman’s Hat has sea caves and two small beaches; one is in a secluded cove facing the ocean. If you walk across to the island, make sure to wear some sort of reef shoes to protect your feet from cuts. From the island’s peak, you can also see the distinctive profile of Kamehameha’s Turtle, also known as the Mokapu peninsula.
