Right now there isn't a lot of water flowing through the 7 Sacred Pools, but if you do the Pipiwai (Bamboo Forest) trail before hand, the swim in the pools is refreshing and cooling. It's a beautiful landscape and clear water. Get there early to avoid crowds, but even with crowds it's fine. Easy walk from parking lot if you... More

We really enjoyed the Ohe'o Gulch (Seven sacred pools). Bring your swimwear and realize that the water is going to be COLD. I recommend bringing some aqua shoes or keens since you have to scramble over rocks and such to get in. Beautiful setting, these pools drain into the ocean.

Great sunrise. Camping by the car-full for fifteen bucks. Nice campsite where you can hear the ocean. Get up early and take the trail to the seven sacred pools. It's beautiful! Make sure to heed warnings about the tide and ocean conditions as the pools can flood suddenly.

First of all, the pools are in the State Park so it's $15 a carload to get in. No problem, it's worth it. Short hike down a paved path to the pools and then a short climb down the rocks into the narrow gulch. Ocean at one end breaking on the rocks and the large pools with waterfalls stairstepping up...

After our long hike at the Pipiwai Trail (gorgeous, btw), we headed down the Ohe'o Gulch to see the pools and take a dip. The water was cold but refreshing. It was sunny and a beautiful day. Would definitely recommend.

Just 10 miles south of Hana are the famous Pools at Ohe’o (also known as the “Seven Sacred Pools”). The beautiful multi-level pools fed by waterfalls are great for a relaxed swim. In busier months, the lower pools get crowded around noon. Always check at the visitor center for current conditions before entering the pools since this is an area... More

I was lucky enough to see Ohe'o Gulch when the water was high and when it was low. Definitely worth the stop and the drive from Kihei.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here! The only downside was that due to time, we were only able to go down to the pools and not up the hike to see the rest. I was very thankful for what we did see, but next time I'd love to stay longer!
