Spectacular Waimea Canyon is called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and for good reason. About 16 km long with green crags, tumbling waterfalls, and deep valley gorges. The twisting drive from Waimea town to Kokee State Park follows the entire length of the canyon, and is the best road trip on Kaua'i. It's littered with lookouts, one more breathtaking than the other. The most established ones have proper parking facilities, while others just have space for a few cars in the curb. Waimea Canyon also offers plenty of hiking opportunities ranging from short walks to further viewpoints, to strenuous hikes deep into the valley.
