The wild north-east corner of Kauai is among the few pristine stretches of undeveloped coastline left in Hawaii. Places like this are often at risk of commercial development, however experiencing its natural splendor will give you a sense of what ancient Kauai might have felt like before tourists left their footprints in the sand. Join us, not only for this special experience, but also to be stewards of our precious shoreline along the way.
Our hike hugs the wild coast, taking us over beaches and rocky shorelines for about 3 kilometers (2 miles) before reaching a small hilltop promontory with epic views in all directions. In our path, we will have the opportunity to pick up marine debris, washed ashore from far-flung parts of the world. By taking part in this private tour, you help to keep the beaches clean so it inhabitants survive. Our positive presence is an example to others that the area is best enjoyed in its natural setting.
