When visiting Kauai, a must-see attraction is Waimea Canyon and Koke’e State Park. Waimea Canyon Drive, beginning in Waimea, is a great way to get there. This drive will merge into Koke’e Road when you get six miles in.

However, unlike Koke’e road, this is a very scenic drive that has a few curves but is easy and relaxed. Find wonderful lookout points while driving. Look out your window and see coastlines and various mountain landscapes. You can even find one stop where you can see a beautiful but small waterfall with Kauai’s red dirt surrounding it. Go another four miles to see the Waimea Canyon lookout and take in the great view.

The Waimea Canyon is 4,000 feet high, so bring a jacket because it’s a little cool. Stay overnight at Koke’e Cabins and bring warm clothing. Try visiting on a sunny day for the best weather, and most of all don’t forget the camera.

This curvy road to Waimea Canyon provides great views, fun lookouts, and great photo opportunities. With convenient places to stay and stretch your legs, the Waimea Canyon Drive is one of the best scenic drives in Hawaii.
