This place is worth the visit. It has many steps so wear appropriate footwear. Filled with mana - spiritual power!
Iao Valley has two parks. The lower park has various buildings reflecting Hawaii's varied cultures as well as many picnic tables and easy access to the Iao River for those wanting to dip their bodies in for some cool comfort. The upper park has the Iao needle as well as short walks that are very scenic. If you want to... More
Iao Valley was definitely worth a visit. It is very picturesque and definitely warrants spending some time walking on the paths. Climb the stairs for a beautiful view. The vegetation is lovely and the $5.00 parking fee is well worth it. Highly recommended.
You can drive straight up to this attraction and climb a few flights of stairs to get to it. It is not far hike. It is majestic and amazing. I do not think that the tourism books give it adequate billing. It is not far off of the beaten path and only cost five bucks to park.
Maui is known for its beach and balmy breezes. When you need a change, take a drive up here. The vegetation is lush, and rock formations are unique. The view is good. It is worth a brief visit only really

I cannot believe that there was an entry fee for this attraction. It has AMAZING views, but you see EVERYTHING within the first minute of entering the park.

The washrooms were closed too on a... More
This is one of the most beautiful places on the Island of Maui. The history of this place if horrific but don't let that stop you from visiting. This is a must see.
Remember when a park was a place discovery and not entertainment? Iao Valley offers a wonderful place to get a feeling for the ancestry of the island. Great place for picnics and a little hiking if you want to.The kids love it. There is a small parking fee at the "needle" but it is free at the Heritage Gardens. Please... More
