An ancient land of staggering beauty, Kauai may be familiar from Jurassic Park and it’s not hard to imagine dinosaurs roaming the rippled, forest-clad ridges of the mountains, pounding through thundering waterfalls and prowling across ochre-red canyons. From the spectacular natural wonder of the Na Pali Coast to the rich forest of the Makhala Mountains, this is a jewel in the Hawaiian archipelago.
Inaccessible by road, the Na Pali Coast is a rugged stretch of secluded bays, lava tubes, fertile valleys and golden sands, and approaching this scenic beauty by boat or helicopter is akin to arriving on an unchartered land.
