Amazing canyon in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on Kauai. I love the Grand Canyon so seeing this was also as impressive. The drive up provided several stopping off points that were simply amazing. I highly recommend seeing this if you're going to Kauai!

The Grand Canyon of the Pacific! The view was simply breathtaking. It was not overly crowded, so you could enjoy the peace and serenity.

The Waimea Canyon is breathtaking! Make sure to get an early start and visit the canyon sites. At the end of the road is a beautiful view of the ocean and the NaPali Coast. Well worth the drive!

We spent most of the day driving through Waimea Canyon and stopping off at the lookout points. It is stunning! There are a number of easy walks as well as some fairly strenuous long hikes. We chose to stick with the lookouts and 1/2 mile...More

Take the hike and try the lemon guavas growing all over. Bring lots of ice and water and a change of shoes if you plan on any major hikes.

Look at weather reports but it should be pleasant but may be a little cool.
