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.

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.

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.

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.

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