Makana Peak1838 viewsBali Hai Or Makana Peak as the Hawaiians call it, was used in the movie South Pacific. In ancient times, men would climb the peak carrying special spears made of Hau and Papala. When darkness fell, they would light the speers and throw them into the ocean below.

Na Pali Coast1846 viewsThis fifteen-mile stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest shore of Kauai literally means "the Cliffs." Much of Na Pali Coast is inaccessible due to its characteristic sheer cliffs that drop straight down, thousands of feet into the ocean.

Na Pali Inside Out1818 viewsWe took a wonderful boat ride along the Na Pali Coast. They stopped at several points of interest along the way, the highlight being when they backed into one of the many Sea Caves. Quite a feat considering the fairly rough seas at the time.

Waimea Canyon1563 viewsWaimea Canyon, also known as the Grand canyon of the Pacific, is approximately ten miles long and up to 3,000 feet deep. The canyon was formed by a deep incision of the Waimea River which is fed from the extreme rainfall on the island's central peak, Mount Waiʻaleʻale. Mount Waiʻaleʻale is among the wettest places on earth.

Waimea Canyon Lookout1556 viewsWe had to do a LITTLE of the touristy stuff. And, take the obligatory tourist photo. Only thing missing here is the Star News (you have to be a Star News subscriber to get that).
