Breakfast on the Island of Kauai can be as simple – and exquisite – as this: rise with the sun and in the warmth of the morning, savor the fruit of Nature’s labor. A note for those who need to be kick-started: relax – your coffee was probably grown on a Kauai estate.

Waimea Canyon, on Kauai’s west side, is often described as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” In fact, it offers an unparalleled display of sunlight and shadow combining to reveal an astonishing landscape – in endless shades of red, green, blue, gray, and purple – carved thousands of years ago.

Pihea Trail follows the back rim of Kauai’s Kalalau valley to a viewpoint (named Pihea) that offers magnificent panoramic views. The trail can also be used to link up with the Alakai Swamp trail (Kilohana) and Kawaikoi stream.

Kalalau Lookout is about 4,000 feet above Kalalau Valley. Here in a misty koa forest, surrounded by ferns, waterfalls, and rare native birds, you’ll be immersed in a majestic silence, gifted by an astounding view of the lush valley below, bordered by towering cliffs and a turquoise sea.

The Island of Kauai is home to miles of white sand beaches, any one of which can become the perfect setting for a sunset picnic. You’ll feel the warmth of the sun long after darkness falls, as you watch the stars twinkle in the night sky.
