Nā Pali Coast, Hawaii

Photograph by Sergio Ballivian, Tandem

Kaua'i's stunning Nā Pali coastline is a familiar sight, immortalized in movies such as Jurassic Park, King Kong, and South Pacific. Some visitors kayak the 15-mile stretch of fluted cliffs, sea caves, and scalloped beaches during the calm seas of summer; others make the trip in "extreme" rafts, outboard-powered assault craft that can surmount almost any sea.
