When visiting the Hawaiian Islands I spend my time in Kauai. Kauai is knows as the garden state for a reason. It is home to seven state parks. In my opinion the most beautiful is Na Pali state park which is situated along the Northeast side of Kauai. There are two ways to access the Na Pali coast. Hike the 11 mile Kalalau Valley Trail or charter a boat. However you decide to get there, the trip is well work it to see this secluded coastal region of Kauai.
