Regardless of where you go in Kauai, you will be met with some of the most incredible beauty that you have ever witnessed. But there are a few places on the island that provide something truly special to witness. You cannot go wrong in visiting virtually anything on the island, but these Kauai parks are some of the most beautiful in the world.
The Na Pali Coast
This is certainly one of the most iconic places in Hawaii and perhaps even the world. No trip to Kauai is complete without seeing the jagged cliffs that tower as high as 4,000 feet above the adjacent ocean at the Na Pali Coast State Park. You cannot access the area by vehicle, so you need to get there by hiking, helicopter, or boat ride. Take the 11-mile hike along the Kalalau Trail, which may seem daunting but is well worth it once you reach your destination. Whether you see this place from the beach, from the air, or from the sea, it is bound to be one your most worthwhile Kauai experiences. You can find this marvel on the northwest coast of Kauai. The trailhead to reach it is at the end of route 560.
Waimea Canyon State Park
Waimea Canyon State Park is referred to as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, and for good reason, as it stretches for over 14 miles, reaching up to a mile wide and 3,600 feet deep. From many vistas you will be captivated by vibrant vegetation speckling the red rocks of the canyon. This is a great place to visit as well because you can actually drive there—no 11-mile hikes required! You can find it on the west side of the island by taking route 550 up from Waimea for about four miles.
You will recognize many aspects of this park from their role in countless blockbuster films like “Jurassic Park,” but you can rest assured the big screen does not do justice to this beautiful scenery. You can get up close to countless rare tropical trees, plants, and garden rooms. These natural wonders come together with ingenious landscape architecture to create one of the most beautiful places you will visit while in Kauai. Find it on the island’s south shore at 4425 Lawai Rd.
