West Shore

West Kauai is an remarkable blend of spectacular natural wonders and Hawaiian cultural landmarks. Awe-inspiring Waimea Canyon is just the beginning. Also in Waimea is the Captain Cook Monument, where British Captain James Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778.

Just north of Polihale State Park is the sacred Polihale heiau from which the Hawaiians believed the souls of the dead departed the island into the setting sun.

From lush rain forest to a sunny stretch of white sand beach, West Kauai has something for everyone.
