Accessible by way of the 11-mile Kalalau Trail from Ke'e Beach is Kalalau Beach, located midway along the isolated Na Pali Coast, at the base of the Kalalau Valley.

Kalalau Beach is a one-mile long stretch of sun-bathed, white sand. Kalalau is so secluded that some areas have no footsteps in the sand, like un-trodden snow. With a waterfall, several caves and caverns, and plenty of trails heading back into the valley to explore, you’ll think you’re in a scene from Jurassic Park. Another smaller beach to the west is accessible if you're a strong swimmer. Beautiful and secluded Kalalau Beach boasts remarkable camping opportunities, by permit only.

A permit is needed to enter anywhere into the Na Pali State Park. Keep in mind that permits are limited and sometimes sold out a year in advance. You can kayak into and out of Kalalau Beach if you are an experienced ocean kayaker. It is easiest to take a sea kayak tour. For a fee you may find some tours to take you there by motor boat.

"One of Hawaii's most secluded Beaches"
Reviewed March 30, 2014
In my day I would have taken the Kalalau Trail to this beach. These days a kayak tour was the way to go. Man, I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it. This beach is like a slice of paradise from out of time.
