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.
