Na Pali (means 'The Cliff' in a literal sense) is one of the wonders of Hawaii. Jaw-dropping cliffs fall 1000s of feet into the Pacific in the north western part of Kauai (Part of the Hawaiian islands). These lush green rugged cliffs are often razor thin with deep and narrow valleys. The walls of these cliffs weep with numerous waterfalls and the valleys flow with pristine rivers.
Most of the Na Pali coastline is inaccessible because of its sheer cliffs. The best way to experience this mystic beauty is by air. This aerial experience of Na Pali is a must see activity in Kauai. A number of operators in Kauai offer helicopter tours to explore this Garden isle by air. 16 miles of ocean rafting, sailing and kayaking or 11 miles of one-way switchback hiking on the Kalalau trial are the other ways to experience the splendor of Na Pali.
Ke'e beach (home of nesting turtles) in the lush North coast of Kauai is the last accessible portion before the towering cliffs of Na Pali begin to appear. The ocean consuming the sun with the Na Pali coast on the side is a sensational sight.
