Na Pali Coast State Park, Wainiha

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
State Park Wildlife Area
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. Add Na Pali Coast State Park and other attractions to your Wainiha trip itinerary using our Wainiha tourist route planner.
