Hawaii, Kaua'i

Hiking/Camping Na'Pali Coast in March

Three friends and I (all in our mid/early 20's) are traveling to Kauai this March for a 5 day hike/camping trip along the Na'Pali Coast of Kauai. Any advice on things we need to bring (that maybe you didn't think of beforehand) that would be good to know? Also, maybe even a couple really great places to go/things to see (waterfalls, etc). Thanks!

Water or Water purifiers. When this trail is wet, and you may see a lot of rain, it is REALLY slippery and dangerous. Wear good boots and plan to deal with getting wet/being wet. Hanakapiai beach/falls are very nice, BUT on ANY beach that you swim, be aware their is a VERY strong outside current. It is often called the "Tahiti Express." You do not want to be swimming in it unless you know what you are doing. Having offered these warnings, it is an amazing, beautiful hike and camp. Enjoy!

Bring water.  Many times people go without or a couple of small bottles... better to bring a nalgene and may be a collapsible version.  Make sure to wear hiking boots or at the very lease trail runners.  Don't go with everyday nikes or slippers, not recommended as if it even drizzles a little bit of rain, it can and very likely be very slippery.  Therefore dangerous.  The Na'Pali Coast is very beautiful.  If you go from the north-east side there is Kalalau Trail which will take you to Hanakapiai Falls... enjoy and be safe.

Ditto with what Robert & Kenny have said about hiking boots, a nalgene and an abundance of caution with reference to swimming. That being said I think this part of the island is best seen by boat or from the air. There's a fairly inexpensive boat trip ($169) that will allow you to explore the sea caves http://napaliexperience.com/ Enjoy!
