Please be aware that the beaches in this part of the country are more likely to be exposed to on-shore winds than in other parts of the country, which creates rather windy weather in most areas. Anything from windsurfing, standing, paddling, snorkelling, angling or just under a shaky forest is the ideal activities here. It is said that the coast of Na Pali is the most beautifull coast in the whole wide open sea, so we know that the beaches here are really amazing.
Fancy a sandy shore that can only be reached by canoe? Old fishermen's settlements and other archeological relics? You can discover all this and much more on these beautiful beaches of the Na Pali Coast.
