"Waimea Canyon" Waimea Canyon Tip by furioso

Waimea Canyon, Kauai: 7 reviews and 6 photos


Favorite thing: Waimea Canyon - predictably dubbed the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific' - is smaller and a mere 200 million years younger than its Arizona cousin, but otherwise not at all dissimilar. The canyon's colorful river-cut gorge is 2785 ft (835m) deep and it seems incredible that such an immense canyon could be tucked away in such a small island.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
