The Tree Tunnel

The Tree Tunnel of Kauai is a row of Eucalyptus Trees that was planted approximately 150 years ago by the Scotchman, Walter Duncan McBryde. In more recent years, hurricanes have damaged the tree tops, diminishing the tree canopy that spanned the road below.

The Sleeping Giant

Bearing a striking resemblance to that of a sleeping giant, the Nounou Mountain Range is located along highway 56. Hawaiian legend tells of a giant that once roamed the Hawaiian islands.

Kauai Bellstone

The Kauai Bellstone is a rock formation that was built by the natives a long time ago to honor a historical or significant event. The rocks were placed precisely so that a certain sound would be made once it was struck.

Captain James Cook Monument

Located in Hofgard Park in the town of Waimea, Captain James Cook Monument was built in honor of Captain James Cook, who was reportedly the first Westerner to ever set foot on Hawaiian soil.

Hanalei Bridge

Hanalei Bridge is a very old bridge in Kauai that has appeal because of its rickety stature. Having a 15 ton weight limit, Hanalei Bridge seems to be standing the test of time.

Taro Fields

Taro was the main crop of Hawaii for centuries. All Islands have Taro fields but in particular interest are the taro fields of Kauai. Taro is a starch food and has been a staple in the Hawaiian diet for centuries.

Hanapepe Swinging Bridge

Hanapepe Swinging Bridge is a foot bridge that was rebuilt after the Hurricane in 1992. It spans the Hanapepe River and brings many tourists to see and walk across it each year. The cost for crossing it is $100 per person; just kidding!

Kilauea Point Lighthouse

Kilauea Point Lighthouse was built in 1913 and was used to guide the ships coming from the Orient. Having the strongest lens of its kind, the lens was replaced in 1970 with a low-maintenance light beacon.

Menehune Ditch

Archeologists say the Menehune Ditch of Kauai was built before the Polynesians ever arrived in Hawaii. Legend states that the small framed Menehume people built the ditch in one night.

Waimea Swinging Bridge

The Waimea Swinging Bridge, spanning the Waimea River, was destroyed by Hurricane Iniki in 1992. However, it was rebuilt in 1996 and once again connecting the farms on each side of the River.

Menuhune Fishpond

Archeologists date the building of the Menehune Fishpond to about 1000 years ago, even before the Native Hawaiians arrived. Legend states that the Menehune race, leprechaun-little people, built the Menehune Fishpond in one night.

Prince Kuhio Park

He was born in Kukui’ula, along the Poipu Coast in 1871. Being the last royal heir to the Hawaiian throne, Prince Kuhio had this park dedicated to him and the park even contains the foundation of his royal home.

Russian Fort Elizabeth

This Russian Fort was built in 1816 by George Scheffer with the aid of Kauai King Kaumuali’I. The intentions of the helping build the fort was in an effort to gain Russia’s help in a fight to reclaim King Kaumuali’i’s Kingdom from King Kamehameha.
