The Remote Hawaii Beach That’s Only Accessible By Boat

This piece of rugged Kauai coastline is said to be one of the most unspoiled natural beauties in all of Hawaii: thousand-foot cliffs are eroded to create vaulted valleys and hidden beaches. And while you can reach parts of this magnificent coastline on foot via the strenuous and dangerous 22-mile Kalalau Trail, there is a hidden beach so far off the beaten path that you can only access by boat during the summer months.
