So, most people I show our photo to don't even know about the "grand canyon" of Hawaii. This area is just amazing, and you could spend a week here and still not see half of it. The canyon road is about 1 1/2 hour drive from Kapaa. It's an easy drive, but the road up the canyon is windy, and our son got a little car sick on the way up. Prepare with motion sickness pills if you think it's an issue for anyone. There are multiple overlooks and views with small parking areas. One thing we recommend is to stop at one or two overlooks on the way up, and back down in the afternoon. The lighting is totally different in the late afternoon. Amazing views and colors in the canyon. We spent most of the afternoon in Kokee State Park at the end of the road. The canyon is not to be missed in our opinion.
