Hoolulu Valley - Na Pali Coast Magazine
Hoolulu means protected bay or waters. These are the cove caves, home of the noddy terns that nest along the cliffs and in the sea caves. The water off the coast of Hoolulu Valley turns electric kool aid blue, especially in the sea caves when the summer sun shines down on it – the brilliant light reflecting off the white sand below. Look up above at the towering overhang of the cliffs and space rock and you can become naturally dizzy. But, the surreal thing is the natural springs coming off the bowl shaped cliffs – they reflect the light of sunbeams that mimic a winter’s snowflake gently falling onto your head.
