We were able to view this majestic sight from our stateroom on the Pride Of America cruise ship. Pictures do not do justice to the overwhelming landscape. Jagged cliffs formed by lava flows are covered by green foliage and bordered by the Blue Pacific. The late afternoon sun created a Beautiful Experience. MUST SEE !!

A recent visit to Kauai afforded me this life changing tour with the Na Pali Experience. The adventurous small catamaran ride accompanied with incredible views of the coast would surpass expectations of any fastidious traveler. The captain maneuvered the 6 man vessel with prowess through every prodigious cave of Na Pali. This company provides historical information in a knowledgable yet... More

The Na Pali coastline is an amazing iconic landscape that will seem very familiar from multiple movie cameos. Beautiful and unusual coastline scenery. See it if you are able!

We hiked to the first beach and then up to the waterfall and it was incredible. If you do hike to the waterfall, I recommend taking waterproof sandals to change into, as... More

Wanted to share my experience here as this is such an expected iconic landscape in Kauaii. As I viewed it when trekking, from a helicopter and on a boat, wanted to summarize it all for you (we're mid 30s, rather fit): 1. WALK: really nice. We did only the 2 + 2 miles walk to the beach from Kee beach... More

This is a small island and no excuse for not taking the few roads to places like this gem. Take the road all the way to the end and see this coastal park. Great views and amazing sites.

We hiked up to the waterfall which took us to the beach (2 miles one way) and another 2 miles to the fall. The hike is fairly intense with lots of rock and water to cross. No elevation per se so lungs were not burning but bodies got a work out over the course of the 5-6 hour hike /... More
