If you travel to the west side of Kauai and follow the road as far as it goes, you will wind up at this state park. This is as close to the Na Pali Coast as you will get, unless you travel by helicopter or boat. Polihale consists of a stretch of beach that snakes for miles around the coast. It is actually famous for being home to the Shifting Sands beach—a somewhat eerie concept, but definitely worth the drive to experience for yourself.
