Cliff-Trekking on the Na Pali Coast (Kauai)
The Na Pali (Hawaiian for "the cliffs") Coast in Kauai attracts hikers from around the globe who scramble along the edges of jagged seaside cliffs on the Kalalau coastal trail. Along the 11-mile stretch, you'll encounter exotic species of orchids and wildflowers, and shattering views of turquoise waters slapping the foot of towering green cliffs. The trail provides access to Hanakapiai, Hanakoa, and Kalalau Valleys, where there are plenty of opportunities for guava and mango picking.
Parking is available at Kee Beach's trailhead and the camping ground at Haena Beach Park.
