The Nāpali Coastline is one of the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring natural wonders in Hawaii. Located on the North Shore of the island of Kauai, the Nāpali Coastline stretches for 17 miles and is a rugged, rocky shoreline that rises dramatically from the Pacific Ocean.
The Nāpali Coastline is a popular destination for visitors to Kauai, who come to hike the Kalalau Trail, take a helicopter tour, or go on a boat tour. The Kalalau Trail is a strenuous 11-mile hike that takes hikers through lush valleys, along towering cliffs, and over rugged terrain. It is considered one of the most beautiful hikes in the world, but it is not for the faint of heart.
The boat & helicopter tours of the Nāpali Coastline offer breathtaking views of the coastline and the surrounding landscape. While aboard visitors can see the dramatic cliffs, waterfalls, and pristine beaches that make up the coastline. The boat tours offer a more leisurely way to see the coastline, with options ranging from catamaran tours to zodiac raft tours. My favorite boating tour is the Catamaran sunset tour with Capt. Andy's! Check out Capt. Andy's at www.Nāpali.com
The Nāpali Coastline is not only a natural wonder, but it is also rich in cultural history. The coastline was home to ancient Hawaiian settlements, and there are still remnants of these settlements that can be seen today. Visitors can also learn about the history and culture of the area at the Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park, which is located at the end of the road on the North Shore of Kauai.
The Nāpali Coastline is a must-see destination for anyone visiting Kauai. Its rugged beauty, rich cultural history, and outdoor adventures make it a unique and unforgettable experience.
