The Waimea Canyon, a.k.a the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” is another must-see. Adjacent to Kokee State Park on the island’s West, the canyon at 14-miles long, one-mile wide and more than 3,600-feet deep, impresses. From the Waimea Lookout, the canyon appears as a dramatic sweep of pink and gray striations sporadically cut with the silvery streams of waterfalls. With young kids, stroll the Iliau Nature Loop, a flat three-tenth’s-mile path that allows little ones to “hike,” hear birds chirping and enjoy a canyon vista. With older kids, try the three-and-a-half-mile round-trip to the top of Waipoo Falls.
