Honopu Sea Arch
may be called Napali Wood sea arch from the movie filmed there. other movies have been made at this location, including Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong (the older remake), James Bond, and the Man with the Golden Arm—with that dramatic helicopter scene of flying through the arch. there is an air of mystery here, for honopu Valley that the arch fronts has been nick-named Valley of the Lost tribe. Its ominous walls tower over 3000 feet, with fluted walls contrasting from lime to dark green. Looking westward down the beach through the arch, look for the glimmer of the water fall shining through the foliage. Many stories are told of this valley as haunted by ancient warrior spirits. Perhaps there was once a traumatic battle here that left souls imprisoned and wandering to haunt the valley for eternity.
Puakuau Falls Sea Arch
Just around the corner from Hanakoa Valley, on rare occasions when it is flat calm, the experience of going through this arch is amazing. High-lighted by a rushing waterfall right next to the raft, you take a ninety degree turn as you pass through. the view looking west as you begin to exit the arch is a post card moment: the Na Pali coastline at its finest—waterfalls plunging into the sea, Jurassic-green sea cliffs above, and below, water glowing out-of-this-world Windex blue.
