Best beach. Worst road

This beach is at the end of the road. Literally. Pavement ends and then there is 5 miles of the worst road. 4 wheel drive recommended. When you get there stay of the sand. Walk... read more

This beach is at the end of the road. Literally. Pavement ends and then there is 5 miles of the worst road. 4 wheel drive recommended. When you get there stay of the sand. Walk in. What an amazing place. Beautiful sand beach never ends. Views of the Napali coastline. Rough surf but the locals go in. As bad as... More

We saw the Na Pali coast from Captain Andy's Catamaran which turned out to be the number 1 event on our entire trip. I would pay a lot more and I would go there again and again.

Saw the NaPali coast from the deck of our cruise ship, Pride of America. Our captain slowed down so we could enjoy the beauty. It was gorgeous!

We saw the Na Pali Coast by helicopter and on a sunset cruise. We are not in the shape that we felt would be needed to do the 22!mile round trip trail. It is absolutely stunning. I love that it's a place that is untouched by modern conveniences such as roads. If you plan to hike the entire trail, I... More

As so many have written already, Na Pali coast trail is gorgeous. We went to the first destination, the rocks beach. Fairly heavy rain caught up with us and we started too late to push to the waterfalls. Going to the beach is easy trail. Yet the rain makes it super slippery. Constant attention is then required. I felt more... More

We have cruised with Liko Kauai many times in the past 12 years & are always so impressed with the genuine aloha spirit of Captain & crew (Corey & Chris both grew up on Kauai & extremely knowledgeable about history, culture, biology, etc.). On March 3 we such had a calm day that our highly skilled Capt. Rob took the... More

Beach was great with life guard. Water was little rough on the day we were their. Hike along the Na Pali coast was a little muddy. Many people hiked for 30 minutes and turned back. It is a climb and is a work out but you do have nice views of the coast. Well worth it but you need to... More
