AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Another top Kauai attraction would be one of two onsets of the Na Pali Coast, at Polihale Beach. The sand is blazing white, the water is Levi Strauss blue, and the sun shines relentlessly. Polihale is known as a “leina” or jumping-off point for the dead into the next world, a belief that stems from its orientation to the setting sun that forms the “waianapanapa” or rippling light on the water that forms a pathway into the next world. Naturally it is one of the best spots to view the sunset on the entire island. The road getting there is long and rutted and has several spots where you can get stuck a long way from help so make sure that you come in a rugged, four-wheel-drive vehicle.
