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.

  • Between the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon, this has got to be some of the most beautiful scenery in the country! Be sure to take the road all the way to the end so you don’t miss any of the views...

  • Such a beautiful place. We learned that you need to get to this view early in the morning, before 9am if you want to enjoy the beauty of the view. It is breathtaking. This view point is not hard to get as you can just drive and walk a few steps to the observatory area. There is a parking lot near the row very convenient as well. There are different hikes and trails around the area. Lovely place to take friends and family.
  • Absolutely stunning! Exceptional views even if you hike the first few miles. The beach is beautiful as well. Wear hiking shoes--the mud is extremely slippery when wet. The trek is a bit difficult, but well worth it.
