Nestled on the island of Kauai is the beautiful and rustic Waimea, a small town of just under a thousand residents who enjoy the relaxation and beauty that embody this Hawaiian paradise. Sunny weather and numerous attractions and landmarks draw prospective tenants and visitors to Waimea, the breathtaking community on Kauai’s southwestern shore. Meaning “red water” in Native Hawaiian, Waimea is known as a popular tourist destination. However, prospective tenants enjoy excellent and quality living in the area. Beautiful homes, to fit any sized family or budget, are available for prospective tenants to choose from. There are even homes near the beach for those who prefer waterfront living. Educational opportunities in the Waimea area are provided by Waimea Canyon Middle School and Waimea High School. In addition to offering residents and prospective tenants a beautiful place to live, Waimea’s large number of attractions and landmarks make it a popular destination among the tourists. One of the town’s most notable landmarks is a statute of Captain James Cook, a eighteenth century British explorer who traveled to the Hawaiian Islands. The statue pays tribute to Cook’s first contact with the islands on January of 1778.
Another major tourist destination is the Waimea Canyon, also called “The Little Grand Canyon” by famous author, Mark Twain. Ten miles long and three thousand, five hundred feet deep, Waimea Canyon is the Pacific’s largest canyon. Carved from the rivers of Mount Waialeale, Waimea Canyon boasts breathtaking scenery, making it an embodiment of Kauai’s pristine beauty. Lush, green valleys and tall, majestic mountains amidst a clear blue sky make Waimea Canyon a natural splendor. An island treasure, Waimea Canyon has a few lookouts and hikes for residents and visitors to fully explore, admire, and photograph this famed, breathtaking landmark. Another opportunity to witness Kauai’s natural beauty and get in touch with nature manifests itself on a hike in Kokee State Park. Camping, picnicking, and various hiking trails, like the Nualolo Cliffs Trail, the Alakai Swamp Trail, and the Kawaikoi Stream Trail give the park’s visitors a chance to take beautiful photographs, examine the wildlife and lush greenery of the area, and indulge in the park’s overall majesty. Additional facilities and services, like restrooms, showers, picnic areas, drinking water, and payphones are also provided by the Park. Polihale State Park is the treasure found at the end of a bumpy dirt road.
Past the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Polihale State Park, also known as Barking Sands Beach, stretches twelve miles of beautiful shoreline and sandy beach. With the Na Pali Coast mountain ranges in the background, the Park is an excellent location to watch a beautiful and colorful Hawaiian sunset, have a barbeque, or just relax on the sandy beach and enjoy the picturesque scenery. Although the park’s facilities include running water, toilets, and showers, guests to the area are advised to bring food and umbrellas, as there are no places to purchase necessities, nor are there many shaded areas. However, this wild beach is not safe for swimming. Excellent beaching conditions can be found at the nearby Queens Pond, located at the end of the park. The Captain Na Pali Adventures, Inc. provides another opportunity for visitors in the Waimea area to explore the stunning Na Pili Coast. Guests board an approved United States Coast Guard ocean zodiac raft. Guests sale along the Na Pali coast, are entertained by dolphins and sea turtles that play in sea, and snorkel with certified divers to explore the depths of Hawaii’s ocean that teems with an assortment of wildlife. Breathtaking and beautiful, Waimea is the primer destination for residential life and visiting.
