The Ancient Hawaiian Fishing Village Only Accessible Via Boat

Located in a small enclave of Kauai’s fabled Na Pali Coast is a spot so secluded that it is only accessible via authorized boat landing. A small beach and untouched valley surrounded by towering cliffs, Nualolo Kai is not only home to a large barrier reef, but also to one of the most extensive and well-preserved archaeological sites in all of Hawaii.

Day tours to the remote Nualolo Kai are offered by Kauai Sea Tours and Capt Andy’s Sailing Adventures and Raft Expeditions. To experience all Kauai’s fabled Na Pali coast has to offer, consider hiking the strenuous 22-mile Kalalau Trail, or taking a boat to to this magical open-air sea cave.
