Fact Box

The name "Na Pali" means "High Cliffs", and the main attractions of this park are the cliffs, which rise along the shoreline as much as 1,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. While the coast is inaccessible to vehicles, it can be enjoyed via boat tour, as well as through a few hiking trails which run along the coast and through the spectacular Kalalau Valley. The park is home to a number of beautiful waterfalls, as well as two primitive campgrounds.

Waimea Canyon
Western Kaua'i
1,866 acres
The 3,600-foot canyon which Waimea Canyon State Park is named for is known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific", and is one of the most popular attractions on the island of Kaua'i. The canyon can be viewed from numerous hiking trails, as well as Hawaii 550. Fishing and hunting are also activities which can be done in the park. The canyon was formed by the collapse of a portion of the volcanic Kaua'i, and the subsequent sculpting by water for the past five million years. 

Fact Box

The land which Kealakekua Bay State Park encompasses was settled over a thousand years ago, and contains several historically and naturally significant sites. The park was the spot where Hawaiians had their first encounter with Europeans, when Captain James Cook visited in 1779. Also within the boundaries of the park are Hikiau Heiau (a traditional religious site), Pali Kapu O Keoua (A 600-foot sea cliff where Hawaiian Chiefs were buried), a Captain Cook monument, and the picturesque bay which the park is named for. Activities which can be done in the park are hiking, boat tours, snorkeling, and wildlife viewing.
