Kalalau Beach is the end point of the Kalalau Trail. It resides in the north-northwest coast of the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The trail is part of the Napali Coast State Park owned by the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR).

Kalalau Beach is a beautiful beach which is at the bottom of the Kalalau valley. The mountains / cliffs which quickly rise create an incredible view.

Travel Information

Two options to get here:
1. Obtain a hiking permit 6-12 months in advance from DLNR. Then backpack the Kalalau Trail. It starts at Ke'e beach and is about 11-14 miles to reach the Kalalau beach. Then of course you need to backpack 11-14 miles out. This is the primary option. Hiking to Kalalau beach without a permit is illegal and may result in a steep fine (~$1500?) if caught.

2. I've read that kayak landing permits are available for ~3 month period in the summer. You will need to kayak along the Napali coast. The open water in this area can be very dangerous and I would strongly advise looking into booking a guide / company for such an adventure.
