    I can’t believe I missed this video. I was trying to remember when you had come to Hawaii and found this. I absolutely love the NaPali Coast. I have hiked the trail to Hanakapiai, and loved it. However, I have kayaked to Kalalau Beach 20 times. It is my favorite vacation spot. You would love it!

    Brought back great memories of taking that hike 30 years ago. Video was beautifully done. Well worth the hike to reach the falls. Thanks for the video.

    Hi. Lovely video. How are the first 2 miles of the hike ? I’m going in November with my parents of 65 and 70 years of age. Is it worth going to falls or just first 2 miles and back ?

    Won't be able to do this hike on our trip next week as the road in is now blocked due to the recent flooding, so this video will have to do. Thanks for posting. Peace to all those in Kauai affected.

      Maryse, this is CameraGuy - thank you so much for this comment. I have always hoped it would help someone in the very way that you describe (your English is fine by the way). How far did you go? Up to the falls ? Further down the trail after the 2 mi. junction?
      Thanks again for watching and sharing this comment!! CG

  • UnbelievableRC 808

    This video got me reminiscing about the time I hiked the same path you guys took. Love the view. The waterfall was worth the hike. For people who haven’t been to this trail, please bring lots of water. I say at least 3 liters because there is no running water unless you have a water filter with you.

      Hello Murdoc - glad you were able to experience this amazing hike as well! It is an epic hike, we actually did it twice while we were there. The second time we hiked as far as to the beach only, but enjoyed it just as much. Lots of water is great advice, especially in the summer heat. Thanks for watching!

    but the flower you were smelling is ginger. It grows wild, I'm not sure if you can eat the bulb root, but it is beautiful... a perfect delicate flower, sweet scented, and used for leis! What a great way to take a break and smell the flowers!

    Just a quick Hello! from Berlin! Thanks for these amazing views which I'll take with me now when I go to sleep. Just wanted to let you know that your videos are also being very much appreciated on the other side of the world.... where the summer didn't do us many favors up here in the north so I wasn't able to harvest any tomatos on my balcony. Envy you for your nice Californian climate. Take care!

      Not respectful to cut plants, but if guava fruits fall on you, its ok.

      If the thousand of visitors collected seeds and cuttings, it would cause the biodiversity of plants and animals to be destroyed.

      Highland's Giving Garden 2 years ago

      Yes I did. It's the most beautiful island in Hawai'i, but a bit too slow pace for me which was why I picked Maui to live. Vacationing is one thing, living there is another. There's so much to do on Kaua'i, and so much to see though. Great honeymoon island for sure. 😀
