We visited the Na Pali Coastline from the top (here) and from the ocean (catamaran). It is ALL spectacular. There is plenty of parking with easy access to many of the trails. The views go on forever...just when you think you have seen the best your next stop is just as awesome. This is a must see on your vacation.... More

If you are here on a nice day, you will have a view that ranks among the best in the world. This is a place that everyone should see when in Kauai. It can be hit or miss as fog is often present. Sometimes you get fog drifting through the mountains which can be beautiful by itself. Lovely Place

After having seen the Napali Coast from the ocean aboard a wonderful catamaran dinner cruise, we decided to drive up and see it from the top overlook. We were not disappointed after the fog cleared for just about five minutes. There are several view points in the park and the trail is easy. I recommend that you spend a bit... More

Great way to see Na Pali coast for free from above. Too bad the swamp trail was "strongly unrecommended" for days / weeks? when we were there: too muddy

Don't just visit the Canyon, take the extra drive to the end of the road. Watch out for drivers going too fast, especially on sections without centre markings. In some ways even more spectacular than the Canyon views. Great views looking down the valley even if you don't take the hike (which we were too tired to do in the... More

This is a great place to take pictures and to see the mountains and the water. Again this place is out of the way so plan to dedicate at least a couple of hours to get there and see the sights.
