Description: Scenic wildland park. This park lies at the “end of the road” on Kaua‘i's north shore, and is an extremely popular destination for both visitors and locals. Viewing of wet caves — ancient sea caves formed during a higher stand of sea, probably 4,000 years ago; tradition credits Pele the volcano goddess as having dug the caves in her search for a new home. Beach-related activities, shore fishing, viewing of spectacular Na Pali Coast and swimming at Ke‘e Beach (conditions allowing). The turquoise cove provides a picturesque setting to enjoy a picnic or stroll on the beach. The trailhead for the 11-mile Kalalau Trail begins in this park. It is best to arrive early as the limited parking fills up rapidly. |
