Great Trail - nature, Fantastic coast views and a many Handmade Stone Towers at the Beach. Trekking shoes are useful, because the Trail is very slippery. To get to the Beach you have to Cross the River by going through the water - so you better put ON Bikini underwear!

Beautiful beach. Even if you're staying on the other side of the island, it's worth spending some time at this beach. Nice, secluded areas.

So this was a highlight of our NCL trip. The weather was beautiful, there must have been some rain because there was a gorgeous rainbow against the Napili coast's spectacular cliffs. We were a mile off the coast and I had seen the Kalalau valley from Waimea canyon years ago, hiked part way in and now got to see Kalalau... More

This is the most amazing place I've ever seen in my life! The jungles are straight out of the movies, massive vines and trees. The coast is absolutely spectacular. My only regret is that I didn't have more time for hikes . Anyone who gave this place less than 5 should be ashamed of themselves.

The beach is unbelievable. The down side is the drive down the long stretch of potholes dirt road. Three miles is long when you are driving at 5 miles per hour. But once you reach the monkey pod tree you have arrived. The beach goes on forever. If you go to the left of the tree you come to a... More

We arrived early, prepared for the crowds. The trails are narrow and it was wonderful to go at our own stride. The views are beautiful, the water is crystal clear, the sky is endless (although the constant helicopters remind you that "civilisation" is all too close). The crowds did arrive, but somehow we all made room for one another and... More

I imagine this is what heaven looks like. I have traveled quite a few places and I can't recall ever seeing something so gorgeous as the Na Pali coast on Kauai. The boat tour was an ideal way to see it because you can really take in the vastness of it with a view from below. It is something I'll... More

We walked along the trail for several miles with young children who were fine going up and down. As you come out of the forest you are greeted by the most amazing vistas and water of the most mesmerising blue. A must for anyone in the area

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I did not hike there because I am not a hiker. We took the catamaran over. Worth every VIEW!

Loved how our 8 year old could hike in the two miles to the beach, while our older kids could go on to the waterfall. Amazing views. So beautiful.
