The Culture Trip recently published an article entitled: The World’s 12 Most Astonishing Coastlines

Among them was Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park, Hawaii

Here’s what they had to say about it: “Nestled on the rugged northwestern edge of Hawaii’s Kauai Island, Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park is a breathtaking landscape where towering peaks and deep valleys cared by cascading waterfalls and streams meet the blissful blue of the Pacific Ocean. A truly remote and unspoiled wilderness, the park can only be accessed via the Kalalau Trail – a precarious 17 kilometer trek not for the faint-hearted that traverses Na Pali’s deep gorges and clifftops and is often listed amongst the most dangerous hikes in the world.”

Other coastlines in the top 12 were:

  • Halong Bay, Vietnam
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Lofoten Islands, Norway
  • Great Ocean Road, Australia
  • Big Sur, California, USA
  • Legzira Beach, Morocco
  • South Georgia Island
  • Cinque Terre, Italy
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Skeleton Coast National Park, Namibia
  • Antrim Coast, Northern Ireland
