Napali Coast

Saturday’s weather was nicer but still overcast. We headed to the north side of the island to Ke’e Beach for some hiking. The 11 mile Kalalau Trail at the Napali Coast has a trailhead here. It is a very rugged, wet trail that follows along the edge of the beautiful cliffs and provides great views. It quickly becomes remote and jungley and makes you feel like you need to look out for the Others or some other Evil on the Island. We passed numerous small waterfalls that come right up to the trail and sometimes over it. Many times, you are hiking across the rocks through go through the streams. We went just short of the first secluded beach at around the 2 mile mark. We turned back so we could do some walking along Ke’e. This is a great area for snorkeling, but Stacie and I aren’t in to getting that close with nature when it comes to being in the ocean.

After hiking and walking along the beach, we ventured in to some caves nearby. We then headed east over to the Kilauea Lighthouse. We got there shortly after it closed but we could still see it from the observation area. Not only did we see the lighthouse, we saw boobies everywhere. I mean there were so many boobies you thought one would hit you in the face. Hehe.
