Kalalau Beach in the Napali Coast State Wilderness Park is one of the best places in the whole world! That’s right folks, if you can get yourself here you will never regret it. We’re talking straight up paradise! Camp along a secluded and perfect beach with the Napali Cliffs at your back, a waterfall on one side, and a lush valley with a creek running through it to explore on the other. If you can hike the 11 mile trail or kayak in, then you will be rewarded with one of the best camping trips of your life! Do it.

Loved the hike into the campground and spend several days here! Bring extra food if you want to stay a couple nights to explore!

Kayaking the Na Pali Coast is only an option during the summer months (roughly April - September) due to the large surf that occurs on that coastline during the winter.

4 waterfalls along the hike and the breathtaking views will make you forget about how thirsty or tired you are. It's a long hike but there's nothing about it that makes it too difficult. When you get to the end there are some trails up into the hills and you'll most likely see a few tents by the beach.

Greatest place I have ever camped. The 12 mile hike in is treacherous but well worth the beauty you will encounter. I learned a lot about myself on this hike.

My favourite campspot on Kauai! It's really close to Hanalei and the hike to the campsite is totally gorgeous. Only thing is you can't really swim because of the rip currents, but the view makes up for it:) There's also a waterfall nearby you can hike to.
