Waimea Canyon

Waimea Canyon is also called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. While not nearly as large, it does remind you of the Grand Canyon. There are two roads up from the coastline. I recommend Waimea Canyon Drive out of the town of Waimea as it follows the canyon more closely than Koke'e Road and has numerous great viewpoints. It also offers wonderful views of the ocean and Nihau Island, an island off Kauai that is only accessible to Hawaiians.
