Waimea Canyon, makes for a fantastic day trip for visitors to Kauai, Hawaii. Waimea Canyon, known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” is the largest canyon throughout the Pacific. Drive or hike the red rock canyon with waterfalls, cloud forest, camping, view of the Pacific Ocean from 4,000 feet elevation.
The Napali Coast is a lush, verdant stretch of coastline on the north side of Kaui Island. Rugged cliffs dramatically sculpted by millennia of natural erosion drop thousands of feet into the ocean. You soon start a steep rocky ascent, passing numerous towering coconut palms–and some of them are loaded, so just be aware. This is one of our favorite hikes in the Islands. A stunning view spreads out along side you as you climb above the panorama of the Pacific.
Although Kaui is known as the garden state and its lush tropical beauty, the island also has a number of magnificent beaches. Here are some of our favorites.
