Kaua'i - Waimea Canyon & the Westside (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

Kauaʻi doesn’t get more local than the Westside, where revered traditions and family pride reign. You’re more likely to hear fluent Hawaiian, spot a real-life paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) and see fishers sewing their nets here than anywhere else on the island.

  • maps
  • drive Waimea Canyon, with jaw-dropping vistas and ocean views so striking you may wonder if this painterly vision is real or not
  • transport
  • zip into sea caves, bounce over waves and snorkel remote reefs on a Na Pali Coast Boat Tour – aah!
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Best Places to Eat, Best Nightlife, Port Allen & Around, Hanapepe, Waimea, Kekaha, Waimea Canyon State Park, Kokeʻe State Park.
