Beach, surf site, Keālia, Kauaʻi. Wide calcareous sand beach on the north side of Paliku Point. The surf site is a shorebreak off the beach. The land here was originally part of the Makee Sugar Company until 1934 when it became part of Līhuʻe Plantation in a consolidation. Līhuʻe Plantation continued to grow sugarcane until 1990, when it terminated operations on its 3,300 acres of agricultural land between Keālia and Anahola. The ahupuaʻa, or land division, of Keālia, 6,700 acres in area including Keālia and Donkey Beaches, was sold by Amfac Land Company in 1998 to Keālia Plantation LLC. While the plantation was still in operation prior to 1990, donkeys were used to haul seed cane into fields that were otherwise difficult to access. When the donkeys were idle, they were pastured in the grassy field behind the beach, giving the site its popular name.
