"Waimea Canyon" Waimea Canyon Tip by sswagner
Waimea Canyon, Kauai: 35 reviews and 80 photos
Kauai is known for its spectacular beauty. This particular feature is considered a "must see" from just about anyone's point of view. Dubbed as "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific", it is in fact a very nice canyon. Because of the highlands, the area receives quite a bit of moisture. This gives the landscape a variety of color, especially with the red soils and green vegetation. The road starts at Waimea and continues towards the canyon. There is a main overlook area and several areas up the road to pull off as well. Just like the Grand Canyon, this feature is created from the erosion caused by the drainage in the area.
Address: On Koke‘e Road (Highway 550), Kauai
Directions: Waimea is on the south side of Kauai, and the well marked road begins from there.
