- Na Pali Coast State ParkFeb 06, 2014
Na Pali Coast State Park is a beautiful and remote coastal park located on the north shore of Kauai. There is an 11 mile trail along the coast, and five sandy beaches, by only two of those beaches - Hanakapiai and Kalalau - can be reached by hiking in. The other beaches are only accessible by water. The most popular activities in the park are hiking on the Kalalau Trail and viewing the coast on a boat cruise. Boat tours depart from Port Allen on the West Side and during the summer months, guided kayaking trips can give you access to awe-inspiring views of the sea cliffs, while air tours can show you scenic Napali areas that aren't accessible by land or water. Replenish your spirit and experience the breathtaking panoramas of the Napali Coast.

The Na Pali Coast State Park is a spectacular meeting of primeval rain forest and the crashing waves of the great blue Pacific ocean. Streams, waterfalls and cool pools refresh the intrepid hiker along the side of cliffs that soar as high as 4,000 ft. above sea level. Small wonder they filmed the classic 'South Pacific' here.

Best way to experience this park is by getting your act together for an advance permit and loading up your backpack with overnight camping gear for the 22-mile round-trip trek along the Kalalau Trail. If you've only got time to hike the first mile or two (open to day hikers without a permit), it's still worth it for the views over the steep, eroded sea cliffs ("na pali" in the Hawaiian language).

Na Pali: rugged, harsh, and jagged, an image of magnificent mountain ranges. Paired with the pristine beaches and coastline, it's breath-takingly beautiful. There are lots of outdoor and beach activities to do.

One of the most breathtaking spots in the world. Great place for a day hike - you can hike along the ocean or turn inland to visit a spectacular waterfall that you can swim up to. For the more adventurous, bring your camping gear and head into the park for a few days - enjoying nights beneath the stars on near deserted beaches. The hike is somewhat strenuous, though, so wear good shoes and bring plenty of water.

You can see the incomparable Na Pali Coast by taking a boat tour or driving to Ke'e Beach and hiking in. There are many companies offering tours. If you like to hike, leave early as there is limited parking at the trail head at Ke'e. The trail is a little strenuous at first, but flattens out all the way to Hanakapi'ai Beach, about two miles in. There you will find a lush, tropical river valley with a fresh water stream running into the ocean. Swimming is not recommended here, but the scenery is worth the effort. Bring plenty of water to drink.

One of the "must see" places in Kauai is the Na Pali Coast. The sight is awesome with 4,000 ft. cliffs rising from the ocean. There are no roads to drive the Na Pali Coast. You either have to see it via a helicopter, or by boat. Captain Andy, based on the North side of the island, features exciting trips via catamaran and zodiacs. You can also sign up for an unforgettable sunset cruise...
