Neighborhood: South Shore / Poipu
Overview

Unlike so many of Kauai's attractions, this one was created by a joint effort between Mother Nature and man. On Highway 520 (or Maluhia Road), you will find a mile-long stretch of eucalyptus trees bordering the road on both sides.

Nevertheless, it is a fragrant, beautiful passageway from Koloa to the east side of the island. The road can be driven or walked.
