We’ll be posting our next ohana poll question on HAWAII Magazine’s facebook page in the days ahead. OK, here we go. Here’s the top five countdown of our facebook ohana’s favorite scenic spots on Kauai.
Tucked into the often cloud-dotted highlands of Kauai’s northwest side, Kalalau Lookout overlooks the much-photographed saw-toothed ridges of the Kalalau Valley, which edges the Napali Coast. (Kalalau is one of few valleys on the remote Napali Coast that you can see without having to take a helicopter tour, a boat ride or hiking trail.) If the clouds are blowing by with the trade winds, there’s also a view of the shoreline’s Kalalau Beach. The drive to this scenic spot is about 4 miles beyond the Kokee History Museum, which is upslope from Waimea Canyon. There are hiking trails near the lookout, too. If you’re up for a hike to various other lookout points, stop by the history museum, where you can find out about conditions on 17 designated trails that cover a total 45 miles.
