Hiking Napali Coast of Kauai – Kalalau Trail

Hiking Napali Coast of Kauai – Kalalau Trail

The Napali Coast is a lush, verdant stretch of coastline on the north side of Kaui Island. Rugged cliffs dramatically sculpted by millennia of natural erosion drop thousands of feet into the ocean. You soon start a steep rocky ascent, passing numerous towering coconut palms–and some of them are loaded, so just be aware. This is one of our favorite hikes in the Islands. A stunning view spreads out along side you as you climb above the panorama of the Pacific.
