This is Part IV of our Kauai 2013 trip journal. After tackling the Kalalau Trail, we’re are rewarded with the stunning Kalalu Beach nestled within the wild and breathtakingly beautiful Napali Coast. The only way to access this remote and rugged beach by land is by hiking the entirety of the Kalalau Trail. There are no shortcuts! The beach sits just beyond the mouth of the Kalalau Valley, at the base of sheer cliff faces and a towering mountain range. We were fortunate enough to spend the night here, as we were worked from the long hike!
