Overview

Certain things in life are unforgettable, and the Na Pali Coast is one of them. Standing majestically like a cathedral of fluted cliffs forming Kaua'i's northwestern coast, Na Pali is a 15-mile landmark born of five million years of rain and wind. Even today, after a rain shower, countless waterfalls cascade down these shimmering emerald cliffs. Na Pali guards the secrets of Kaua'i's past and embodies the eternal nature of its beauty and history.

In ancient days, despite Na Pali's daunting appearance, these cliffs provided the early Hawaiians with all the basics of life: mountain-fresh water, native vegetation, fertile valleys, and abundant fishing. Within the folds of Na Pali's 4,000-foot cliffs, Hawaiians were also isolated and protected from invasion. Though times have changed, Na Pali has remained timeless. In Na Pali: Kaua'i's Northwest Shore, photographer David Boynton has captured the alluring wonder of these cliffs and their sequestered landscape - from Ke'e Beach to Kalalau Valley to Polihale Beach - as well as of many other pristine beaches and flora-filled valleys in between. Whether you have witnessed the sheer drops of Na Pali or are admiring them for the first time here, the view from any and every angle is breathtaking and spectacular.
