napali_coast_kauai_hawaii_-_panoramioOn the north shore of the Emerald Isle lies the famous Napali Coast, a 17-mile stretch of jaw-dropping, breathtaking beauty. Rugged, 3,000-foot pinnacles topped with vibrant greenery tower above the scenic shoreline.

The Napali Coast is truly stunning, and best of all – it remains largely the same as it was hundreds of years ago, when indigenous Hawaiian settlements flourished in the fertile valleys nearby.

A visit to the Napali Coast is a must-do for travelers to Kauai, but it is a little way off the beaten path. The only way to reach it by land is via an 11-mile hiking trail, one of the most challenging and dangerous paths on the entire island.

If intense hiking doesn’t sound appealing, don’t worry. There are other ways to take in the sights. A helicopter tour offers a dramatic birds-eye view of the emerald panorama. Or, get out on the water and take a boat or kayak tour to see the scenery coast up-close.
