We enjoyed capturing the natural beauty of the rainforest , valley ey, wild life and vegetation . There are restrooms, a restaurant, a boutique, parking and employees to help you. It is a hike so be prepared . Proper footware and hats recommended.

Some interesting historical markers along these hiking trails and fun to ascend above the beaches and waves and get a higher view of the North Shore. Up in these hillsides, it's easy to feel why these island slopes are sacred grounds to the native Hawaiians....More

Just spent the morning here . Ginger in flower and the swim at the waterfall lovely. Float vests must be worn. You can take a cart to falls for $6 each way if easier but walk was fine. Reef shoes an advantage. If disabled it...More

The parking for Waimea Valley is several minutes driving in from the road. If you were to walk to the beach from the parking area, it may be a little far. Also, the parking is for paying Waimea Valley visitors. There is a... More
