Private South Shore Coastal Hike
Vendor: Kauai Hiking Tours
Category: Hiking
Location: Kauai

DESCRIPTION

This gentle stroll will take us along the edge of lithified limestone cliffs, jaggedly overhung in impossibly thin slivers over the ocean! Feel the power of the ocean, and smell the salt air, as crashing waves explode below you. The compacting of air within the cliffs creates a special surprise. Our hike will take us to a promontory, where we will see impressive views of Haupu Mountain, Kawelikoa Point, and deep into the Kauai Channel in the direction of Oahu (which you can see at 108 miles away on extremely clear days).

Maha'ulepu (MAHA ulePU) is an area rich in natural and cultural history. Learn about the epic land and sea battle that was fought and won here by the people of Kaua'i in the 1300s, giving it the name Maha'ulepu which literally means and falling together. As one of the last remaining stretches of undeveloped coastline on the South Shore, the Maha'ulepu area is still fiercely protected by locals, who recognize its unique historical significance and aesthetic value; and fear more resort development.

On Wed, Fri, Sat, & Sun, or by special request, our visit will include a guided tour of the nearby Makauwahi Cave Reserve to see Hawaii's largest limestone cave and richest fossil site! We will also have an opportunity to visit with giant land tortoises that are doing their part to help restore native plants.Know youll be doing your part, as 10% of every tour will be donated to Makauwahi Cave Reserve and/or Malama Mahaulepu.
