The rugged cliffs or pali reach as high as 4,000 feet and serve to severely limit access into the 6,175 acre park; there are no roads or access other than by boat or an eleven mile coastal hike along the treacherous, but scenic Kalalau Trail.
There are ongoing efforts to document and protect the hundreds of archaeological sites in the Napali Coast’s five major valleys.
The beautiful 16 mile Napali coastline with its abundant waterfall and sea caves, provides numerous photo and sightseeing opportunities including such attractions as Kalalau Valley and Honopu Beach. Some of these sea caves are large enough to take small craft into when the seas are calm. Pristine water makes for excellent visibility which in turn creates magnificent Napali Coast snorkeling opportunities. On our Kauai boat tours you’ll not only see the sights, but you’ll have the chance to swim and snorkel with colorful tropical reef fish, the occasional Manta Ray, and the graceful giant Green Sea Turtle!
