Nā Pali Coast | Honopū Beach

WI_hw106a.jpg

The two beaches are connected by the Honopū Sea Arch (centre of the image). The rugged northwest coast of Kaua'i with its more than 1000 m high cliffs is only accessible by foot or boat. Whilst the Nā Pali Coast was an important centre of trade in past centuries, it is now almost uninhabited and protected by law.
