I consigli della gente del luogo sui migliori parchi

Punto di osservazione panoramico
“Waimea Canyon is a must see. Try to go when the weather is decent to see the Kalalau valley and waterfalls. I will defer to the guidebooks for you to choose hikes to do. You can have an enjoyable time just driving up to the end of the paved road and working your way down. I suggest doing that because the lookouts at the top can get fogged in. ”

“It combines the campy flavor of old Hawaii with historical local traditions. Come early and watch the kalua pig being lifted from the pit. Then experience a traditional Hawaiian feast, while you watch an eye-popping Polynesian show with hula dancers, Tahitian dancers, and fire dancers!”

“Its a little piece of heaven. A lush, mountainous park with waterfalls, a campground, a museum & panoramic ocean & valley views. You must have reservations to camp here. Sometimes as much as a year in advance. Be prepared for a long drive about 1.5 hours from the airport. But worth it.”

“Polihale is framed on the west end by the Na Pali Cliffs and offers sweeping sand dunes and a 7-mile stretch of white sand beach. Polihale is typically hot and sunny and offers amazing sunset views over Niihau and is excellent for stargazing. Surfing and swimming should be left to those who are familiar with Poihale as there are some strong offshore currents that make swimming dangerous. Camping by permit only. Dirt parking lot. Public bathrooms and showers. No lifeguard on duty.”

“Take the tour or at least the time to read the self guided booklet! It is an amazing and spiritual place and you will come away with a very different understanding of Kauai culture and the landscape and foliage all around you! Call ahead to see when open.”

“Two gardens with very different glimpses of Kauai. McBryde has a natural feel, beautiful gardens and you can wander at your own pace. Allerton is also beautiful, home of the huge ficus trees in Jurassic Park but they only offer guided tours. ”

“Take the moderately challenging 1:15 minute, magical hike to Haena, otherwise known as "Shipman's Beach." During the occasional calm days you can swim or simply sit on the ribboned multi colored beach. ”

“Na Aina Kai ("Lands by the sea") Botanical Gardens is quite the hidden gem in . Most know Kilauea for the lighthouse, but this wonderful 240 acre garden is not to be missed. With 70 life size (some bigger then life size!) bronze statues scattered through out the property and something for everyone: waterfalls, pools, arbors, topiaries, colonnades, gazebos, a poinciana maze, a lagoon with spouting fountains, a Japanese teahouse, and little path along a stream that leads to the ocean. Even those that don't think they like botanical gardens will have a change of heart after going on one of the tours. The vision of one of the original founders, Joyce Doty, was to have the gardens be an ever evolving work of art that they are still achieving today. Tours are done Tuesday through Friday; a variety of different tours are offered, from 1 1/2 hours ($35) to 5 hours ($85) long, ranging from casual, guided strolls and rides in the covered CarTram to treks from one end of the gardens to the ocean. It just depends on what you are interested in seeing. If you are travelling with kids I suggest the family tour; it's great for everyone and the kids get to play in the water park at the gardens. If you happen to be here on their Keiki Day (usually the last Saturday of the month) it's only $10 for kids to go in and enjoy the childrens garden. Not only are the gardens a great spot to come and learn about flora and fauna of Kauai, but they also do weddings and events here. With many options of where they can hold your special day or big event, you are sure to end up with beautiful venue. ”
