The breathtaking green cliffs of Na Pali provide a natural barrier, restricting access to one of the world's most awe-inspiring and historical areas to those walking, on a helicopter, or travel via boat. From mopeds to Harleys, VW convertibles to motor homes, you could rent all sorts of vehicles on the island.

From humble beginnings as the son of missionary teachers, George Norton built a successful plantation. Grove Farm is no longer in the sugar business.
