The best camping near Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park guide



Created to protect the Kalalau Valley, this park is unique for lots of reasons.

Thanks to careful preservation, it hasn't changed much. Plus, besides its jaw-dropping beauty, this park is very remote and hard to reach. The only way to camp on the coast is by backpacking or boating in.

The hike along the 11-mile Kalalau trail takes a lot of effort through narrow valleys and sometimes nerve-wracking cliffside terrain. It's not for the acrophobic!

Kayaking in may be easier but presents its own set of challenges. Either way, it will be totally worth it when you pitch your tent on the secluded Kalalau beach (camping permits are required).

Even in the summer months, you can spend your days feeling like you are on your own personal island. Enjoy picture perfect Pacific Ocean beaches (skinny dipping recommended!), the Napali Cliffs at your back, and night skies that may turn you into a mystic. Ok Napali coast, you win!
