Na Pali Coast, Hawaii
Often noted for being one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it made the 2021 list as well. And while this beautiful beach on the island of Kauai can be seen clearly from passing tour boats or on a canoe, getting there since rains flooded out the roads has become more difficult.
The most common (right now) and challenging way to set foot on the shore, guests will need to hike an 11-mile trail from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Beach. For those who are up to it, though, the trip is well worth it. The dramatic rock structures and natural archways surrounding and overlooking the beach are a true sight to behold.
UPDATE: You can now drive to the beach, but you need to check the schedule since limited traffic is allowed through the road. You may also need to sign up for the day trip.
