We saw this amazingly beautiful coast from Captain andy's dinner boat cruise. It is stunning and worth the time. There is nowhere like this coastline. Weather you camp, boat or take a helicopter trip to see this area, it is worth the time and money....More

Na Pali Coast is one of the most beautiful coast in the world and you must see it from a boat, helicopter or hike it. You can’t drive and reach it. I strongly recommend you do boat tour as it’s cool, amazing, awesome and really...More

We did the hike along the coast in less than 3 hours (round-trip). We ended our hike at the beach. I had an aircast on and found the hike to be fairly easy. There were 3-4 areas that boasted amazing views of the coast and...More

Unless you take a boat tour (not available from October until around April due to rough seas) or are up to some strenuous hiking to get there, I don't know how you really can enjoy this area. Helicopter?

North of Princeville and Hanalei is the kalalau trail of the Na Pali coast. It is not for the faint-hearted. We just finished the first part of the hike to Hanakapiai beach; the rain on this side of Kauai can be incessant. The trail, normally...More

Just part of the great scenery in HI, a few great spots to view waves crashing on rocks and a blowhole near Allerton Gardens.

I have visited many times. By boat, by zodiac, by kayak and by hiking. Depending on the level of adventure and season- all ways are amazing. One of the most amazing places I have ever been.

Great! I strongly recommend Blue Ocean Adventure Tour for seeing Na Pali Coast with small boats, for 10-12 people. They have a small boat which was an american marine boat. This boat is considered a fast boat and because... More
