NAPALI COAST (KAUAI)
This secluded 17-mile stretch along Kauai’s north shore offers wonderful views of boundless ocean, deep narrow valleys, and opulent green cliffs that reach more than 4,000 feet from ocean to summit. The Napali Coast is among the Hawaii wonders that are largely off-limits to automobiles. It’s accessible by land only through the Kalalau Trail, a rigorous 11-mile hiking trail. At the end of the trail, hikers get to sink their toes into the white sand of Kalalau Beach. While non-hikers cannot get to the coast in an automobile, they can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Napali area by way of boat tours, guided kayaking trips, and air tours.
