Seeing this from the water via catamaran or looking down on it from overlooks in Waimea National Park, it's a once in a lifetime panarama of beautiful views. Unquestonably, a "don't miss" activity when visiting Kauai.

Breathtaking views from the air (helicopter) or the sea (by boat), or in person (hike). I've done them all and the coast is worth seeing!!

Most people visit the Na Pali coast via one of the boat or helicopter tours. These will all generally set you back around $150 USD+ per person. Many, if not most people, are more than happy to spend this for a tour, but we were...More

See it from the air - Wings over kauai was wonderful for us. There is so much texture and color that you don't see in the pictures. Very awe inspiring.
