Waimea Canyon on the island of Kauai, Hawaii
When imagining the Hawaiian Islands, an incredible beach may be the first thing that pops to mind, but there’s much more here besides white sand and sparkling surf.
The Waimea Canyon, a vast geological wonder cut deep into the western interior of Kauai, the fourth-largest island in the chain. The gorge is known as the ‘Grand Canyon of the Pacific’ and it earns the comparison: At 10 miles long and reaching depths of 3,000 feet at some points, Waimea makes a big impression.
Unlike that other enormous canyon in Arizona, the landscape here was formed not only by river erosion, but also by the massive collapse of the volcano that forms the island of Kauai itself.
