Nāpali is considered the jewel of Kauai, its emerald cliffs rising above the island’s northwest shore.
In Hawaiian, Nāpali means “the cliffs” and it’s estimated the 17-mile coastline is about five million years old, the result of volcanic eruptions.
The now razor-sharp cliffs were created by strong winds, rain and crashing waves. Its numerous valleys were home to thousands of Native Hawaiians centuries ago and today the towering coastline is a remote, nature lover’s dream destination.
