Hiking on the Island's South End

A favorite hike on the south end of the island starts at the Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course (Hyatt). Hike along the cliffs past the Hyatt to the beautiful and rustic Mahalilepu Beach.

 
Snorkeling on the Island's South End

Snorkeling is best on the southern end of the island during the winter and best on the northern end during the summer. Poipu Beach Park has excellent snorkeling.

 
Hiking on the Island's North End

Hiking on the Island's North End

The north end of the island (1 1/2 hour drive) has fabulous beaches and hiking trails. If you need lunch, stop in Kilauea and pick up sandwiches and beverages

 
Kalalau Trail

Kalalau Trail

One of our favorite hikes is the Kalalau Trail winding its way along the spectacular Na Pali coast. The trail begins at Kee Lagoon where Highway 56 ends and is steep and often muddy. Bring old tennis shoes, a picnic lunch and water (don't drink from the streams). Hanakapiai Valley is approximately two miles in and there is a beach. Avoid hiking after heavy rains because the trail becomes slippery.

 
Hanakapiai Valley

Hanakapiai Valley

Relax at the end of the trail. The surf is high and the east-to-west current is extremely strong --please be careful. Upon reaching Hanakapiai Valley you will come to a large stream. If you follow it inland for two miles you will come upon the Hanakapiai Falls and pool. We have received excellent reports from our guests who have taken the guided hiking tours.

 
Waimea Canyon

Waimea Canyon

Waimea Canyon is referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". As you continue up the road you find yourself in Kokee State Park. There are 45 miles of hiking trails with views of the Na Pali coastline and Waimea Canyon.

 
Helicopter, Boat Tours, and More

Helicopter, Boat Tours, and More

There are several helicopter companies available to fly you over the Na Pali coast and the Waimea Canyon, plus a variety of Boat Tours which offer snorkeling and lunch. Horesback Riding is available from two Poipu stables.
