A windy road through a neighborhood on the western side of Kaua’i takes you to one of the Pacific’s wonders of the world that needs to be seen: Waimea Canyon. Dubbed “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, it is a valley that rises 3000 feet/ 900 meters above sea level and is 10 miles/ 16 kilometers long. At its heart lies one of the wettest places on Earth, Mount Wai’ale’ale. The canyon stretches along the North/North Western Coast on the island of Kaua’i and expands into (turns into) the cliffs of the Napali Coast. It’s no Grand Canyon but it is definitely something that one needs to see in their lifetime; it’s in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for crying out loud which adds another level of astonishment on it’s own.
