We took an early-riser expedition to discover the more rugged and unspoiled coast of the island. Departing from Port Allen, the catamaran will take you floating on the Pacific, with bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales and sea turtles along the red cliffs of green meadows, where Native Hawaiians previously settled, because from here, they had access to difficult-to-catch delicacies in other waters.
The final note here ... snorkelling! I recommend the tour given by Captain Andy due to his funny stories during the trip, his friendly crew, and respect to the environment. What I mean by this is that he did not harass the whales with his boat.
Driving on highway 56 to the north coast, the road ends at Haena Beach Park which is the starting point for the Kalalau Trail, which lets you follow the trail of Native Hawaiians, to the coastal valleys of Na Pali. The path is long if you want to walk it all, so you must ask permission from the Department of Land and Natural Resources, if you need to set up camp halfway along it. There is also the option of camping in Haena Beach Park, at the trailhead, but you must plan ahead and keep in mind, you should ask permission from the Department of Parks & Recreation (Mon to Fri - Lihue) and you can only camp on Mondays.
The trail ascends through the body of the giant Kanaka Nunui Moe, offering us views of the valleys of Nonou Forest Reserve, leading to the summit where you can watch, whilst sitting on wooden benches, the waves crashing against the coast of Kapaa Town. The path is 2.7 miles.
