Kauai's most famous destination is rugged Waimea Canyon, a wild and wonderful river gorge that’s known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
Spectacular views and favored hiking trails are the canyon's main drawcards, with plenty of scenic lookouts, picnic areas and nature trails.
Carved over the millennia by the volcanic activity and the floodwaters of the Waimea River, the red rock canyon measures up 10 miles (16 km) long and 3,000 feet (900 m) deep.
Waimea Canyon is on the west side of Kauai. It’s best toured by organized excursion or private car.
