1. Na Pali Coast State Park
This place is just ridiculous. With otherworldly cliffs rising 4,000ft above the beautiful Pacific Ocean coastline it straddles, this remote section of Kaua'i's northwest coast is inaccessible by car, meaning you need to charter a boat or helicopter to get the most expansive views of its stunning "land before time" charms. The more adventurous can hike or kayak their way through its 6,000+ acres of breathtaking waterfalls, lush valleys, gorgeous forested cliffs, remote Cast Away-style beaches, and historic stone wall terraces. In other words, sure beats hanging out at the hotel bar all day.
