Maluhia Road Tree Tunnel
The Maluhia Road Tree Tunnel is a canopy of Eucalyptus trees that line Maliuhi Road. The Tree Tunnel shades the first mile of highway 520 and creates a natural gateway to Koloa and Poipu. The trees were originally gifted to the community in 1911 by Pineapple Baron Walter McBryde.
This small, but beautiful rocky beach is a great spot for surfing, bodyboarding, and snorkeling, or enjoy a breathtaking sunset view. Located on the western end of Poipu Road, Lawa'i Beach is one of the top snorkeling destinations on Kauai. Snorkelers enjoy clear views because the beach is sheltered by a reef barrier.

The Hanapepe Valley Lookout is located after the Mile 14 marker on Highway 50. It’s the best place in Kauai to take in the full view of Hanapepe Valley. The valley’s primordial splendor was best captured and most well known for Jurassic Park. Step into the past at the Hanapepe Valley Lookout.
