Create an itinerary including Na Pali Coast State Park
The rugged coastline of Hawaii's oldest inhabited island, Na Pali Coast State Park, can only be reached by hiking, kayaking, or paddleboarding. If you're not feeling that adventurous, consider taking a guided boat tour or helicopter ride around the coast. However, this natural beauty is worth the hike (or kayak ride). The cliffs, or pali, jut straight out of the water and are marked with small, narrow valleys and caves formed by strong seawater. Camping on the beach overnight is also a popular option here; just remember that you need to pay for a permit to do so. Put Na Pali Coast State Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Wainiha trip maker.

  • Gorgeous place! You need to see it both from a boat and from a helicopter to truly appreciate it. We didn't do any of the hiking around it, but the photos from above and from the boat are just...

  • One of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, and one that displays the fierce beauty of mother nature's creations. The cathedral peaks and jagged crags are awe-inspiring and as beautiful as...

  • We took a boat to see the Na Pali coast instead of hiking up. It was stunning too!! We were lucky enough to catch the sunset and the cruise trip we went on had the best cheesecake ;) The views of the coast from below are just as amazing, if not better since you could see so much of the coast and the ocean. The Na Pali coast is really iconic and it's really beautiful. If you don't like hiking all that much the boat ride was one of the best highlights of our trip!!!
  • This was such a fun experience! Best way to start the morning by snorkeling, riding waves, whale watching, and sightseeing! Such a beautiful way to see a different part of Kauai! Captain Wyndall and his crew Max and Kylie were amazing and never let the drinks stop flowing! Would highly recommend this experience!
