Kalalau Trail, Hawaii

KAUAI, HAWAII … Na Pali Coast (meaning CLIFFS is Hawaiian) – 14 miles of sea cliffs ascending 3,000 feet above untamed shoreline, with sheer-walled valleys and cascading waterfalls. We did the first part of the Kalalau Trail (about 13km return).  It included a hike to Hanakapi`ai beech and waterfall. Lots of people have died at this beach after entering the water because of churning waves and strong rip currents.  What an amazing hike!  The movie, “The Perfect Getaway” was based on this hike and many other major motion pictures were filmed using the Na Pali Coast as a back drop. King Kong, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, and Pirates of the Caribbean just to name a few.
