KALALAU TRAIL – HAWAII, USA
The Kalalau Trail is an 11 mile hike that leads from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Beach along the Na Pali Coast on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. It’s the only land access to this rugged coast, so if you want to explore it by foot, this is the way to go. While you’re tackling the challenging trails, just remember that you’re headed to one of the most beautiful and remote beaches on the island.
WILD COAST HIKING TRAIL – SOUTH AFRICA
The Wild Coast Trail (aka Transkei) is one of South Africa’s most remote and inaccessible stretches of seashore. On this hike you’ll stroll along empty white-sand beaches and walk up rolling green hills alongside dramatic cliffs. While the name Wild Coast might lead you to think it’s a remote place, there are actually Xhosa villages that can be found all along the coast. It earned its name rather from the many ships and lives that have been claimed along this dangerous coastline.
