  • Incredible Beach. We went late 1 day and wish we had spent more time here. The caves are very pretty. There are hikes we heard about that are incredible. The beach was amazing and B E A U tiful!! The parking is very small. The facilities are wonderful.
  • Totally amazing. The best thing we did on all of Kaui. This is the best beach on the island and the hike along the coast was incredible. Yes, it gets a little packed, and the parking can be really bad, and the cops WILL give you a ticket if you park in an illegal spot, but those are minor concerns compared to the incredible beauty of this park and the hike along the Na Pali Coast.
  • Lovely place, hiking is superb. Parking is a nightmare. Arrive early, no later than 8am unless you are willing to walk a ways and potentially not be able to obtain parking
  • Amazing trail! Don't get to close to the cliffs or you might not come back :-) Epic views of the ocean and the natural cliffs made of lithified sand. The cave was closed on the day we went but we picked up a brochure anyway.
  • Great swimming for children great snorkeling Beach all around beautiful beach with a lifeguard station and Facilities and a shower.
