Island Trader Vacations travel services department invites you to take a closer look at 3 of one of Hawaii’s’ top islands best natural attractions.
Napali Cliffs – A stunning coastal mountain range, the Napali Cliffs are the most popular and well known natural feature on the island of Kauai. Accessible only by helicopter tour, sea tour or by hiking, this not quite “easy to access” destination has much to offer. Situated on the north shore of the islands, this iconic coast features undulating lush green peaks towering high above the shoreline. 17 miles in length, the Napali Coast offers amazing Pacific Ocean views and remains virtually untouched. Undeveloped and pristine, visitors can enjoy a peak at what visitors to this lovely island have viewed for thousands of years. Waterfalls, valleys, cliffs and forests make up this amazing destination. The Kalalau Trail makes its way 11 miles through the region crossing valleys on its way to a remote and secluded beach.
Waimea Canyon – Nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, this mighty mountain range lacks the velvet green covering of the Napali Cliffs and is much more reminiscent of the range for which it is nicknamed. Located on the west side of the island, it stretches for 14 miles and is upwards of 3,600 feet deep. Valleys, gorges, crags, buttes and views characterize this much more easily accessible destination. Lookouts are available from the main road. Take your time and do it on your own or take a tour.
Wailua River – One of the only navigable rivers in the islands, this river is one of the best known and popular. Located on the east side of the island, it is accessible by car. Waterfalls and jungles, caves and mountains stretch for the entire 20 mile length of this lovely and beautiful river. Kayak, canoe or take a tour of this top destination for travel.
