There are no words to accurately describe the beauty. Its a great place to come with the family and hang out on the beautiful beach or hike the trails that provide spectacular views of the rugged coast. We hiked to the Hanakoa Falls which was stunning but I not recommended for young ones.

A tour of some kind of the Na Pali coast is definitely worth your time. We toured with Na Pali Catamaran in Oct 2013 and enjoyed our tour with them. Beautiful coast line. Saw goats on the rough cliffs and a few people walking with a surfboard on a very narrow path along the cliffs. Crazy! We snorkeled for a... More

One of the most untouched side of Hawaii. Na Pali coast is must see and experience when in Kauai. To have complete experience you have to not only see the coast from the sea but also have to go up to Kalalau Lookout in Kake'e State Park. Keep in mind, this is one of the wettest spots in the world... More

Our timing and crew were great. Managed to have good weather which meant a relatively calm trip, but if you sit up the front, youll definitely get wet. So bring a wet weather jacket with a hood. We took a SLR and GoPro and made the most of our experience. Great sights, even saw some whales but its not a... More

You can access the hiking trails either from Ke’e beach or from the end of Koke’e road. There are cruise companies that offer tours from either Port Allen or the North shore, air tours (helicopter/plane)... More

The Napali Coast is famous for its scenic cliff walls that are best viewed by air and boat. We took a boat tour up the coast and the scenery was spectacular! It was a bit blustery and choppy the day of our tour, but it was well worth the trip! We had originally booked with Captain Andy based on the... More

If you only see one thing while in Kauai this is it. Helicopter tours are awesome, but even more impressive from a boat tour. You can even hike it which is a blast. Don't miss it.

I didn't know Kauai was on my bucket list until I drove up to the north side, climbed up to a look out, and looked down at the Na Pali Coast. Such breathtaking views that are so worth the somewhat arduous climb up. This is a MUST SEE that I think belongs on everyone's bucket list.

We saw the coast line by boat. Simply stunning. Such a sight to behold, probably cultivating at the spires. It is really with awe that you see it and listen to the mythical stories associated with it, and other sites along the coast.

The Na Pali Coast State Park is truly beautiful! Did the hike to Hanakapi'ai Falls - it was wet and muddy, river rocks were quite slippery - but well worth the spectacular view!
