Place To Visit Hawaii
Tunnels Beach (Makua) is the perfect place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Palms and ironwood trees surround this crescent-shaped bay with its golden sand beach backdropped by lush jungle and mountains. Altogether it forms a truly picture-perfect beach. In addition to being a great place to surf, windsurf, and kite surf, Tunnel Beach is also the starting point for exploring the magical underwater caverns near here.
Poipu Beach, which is edged by Poipu Beach Park and a few resorts, is the most popular beach on the South Shore. The beach has plenty of water activities including snorkeling, swimming, a natural ocean wading pool, boogie-boarding, and surfing. No wonder the Travel Channel named Poipu Beach as America’s Best Beach, ranking top of the 10 best beaches in the United States.
Cradled by tall green cliffs, this bay is a popular beach for families with children. During the summertime, the bay is a paradise with its gentle waves and incredible scenery. Some tourists come in the late afternoon just to watch - and take plenty of photos of - the spectacular sunsets right in the center of the bay.
Makauwahi Cave is the largest cave in Hawaii and is one of Kauai’s richest natural wonders. The cave, teeming with fossils and geological evidence of past floods, hurricanes, and a massive tsunami, is situated within a lush green sinkhole that exposes evidence of extinct species of plants and animals that once inhabited this tropical paradise island.
Another of Hawaii’s natural marvels, Waimea Canyon has colorful dips and peaks. This spot has been dubbed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” and is home to lush vegetation and towering waterfalls.
