Waimea is a very historical place, where the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" is situated. The Canyon actually measures 10 miles long and 1 mile wide, while its depth is more than 3,500 feet. It was formed thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's peak. The lines in the canyon walls indicate the various volcanic eruptions and lava flow it has experienced over the centuries.
This is a great place for sightseeing because of its astonishing panorama. If it’s your first time to go to the Waimea Canyon, take Highway 50 west from Hanapepe toward Waimea, and you’ll find it just right just past Mile Marker #23. The Grand Canyon shares with its admirers a magnificent panorama of its own island personality. The Canyon just can’t help but exude its splendor. A diverse flora abounds in it including the yellow ginger, some eucalyptus trees, Kauai's own mokihana berries, and other plant species scattered on the 3,500-ft. elevation. The Waimea Canyon is a sight to behold that no one should dare miss.
On your way to Waimea Canyon, make a stop in Waimea Town on the West Side. This historic seaport town is a stone’s throw from where British discoverer Captain James Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778. A statue of Captain Cook can be found in the center of town, a replica of the original statue found in Whitby, England. Rich in paniolo history (Hawaiian cowboys), this charming town is home to a variety of small shops and businesses as well as a growing number of tech companies.
While you’re in Waimea Town, stop by the West Kauai Technology & Visitor Center, a great place to learn more about Kauai’s past. The center features exhibits, programs and weekly activities that reflect the diversity of Kauai’s agricultural community. Call for more information (registration is required for some events and programs). Along with Hanapepe, Waimea Town is an off-the-beaten-path discovery that’s a great place to stop as you explore Kauai’s West Side.
