“Waimea Valley Beach Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Beautiful place - but you'll want to get here early for parking reasons. This place was wonderful and the most beautiful water I have ever been in. Coming from the east coast, to see your feet in the water is unheard of. I could've stayed here all day. The locals that were here, were so friendly and always offered their advice on where and what to do. Great beach!

“Nice place to spend the day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Thanks to all the reviews, we decided to visit Waimea Valley... what a day. This is a photographer's paradise for amateur and professionals alike. I strongly recommend at least 3 hours to walk all the trails and swim at the falls. A life guard is on duty and will provide life-jackets to anyone wishing to swim. Military and other discounts are available. If you are not able to walk the trail, rides are available for a small fee.

“Beautiful way to spend the day...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is a beautiful Botanical Garden with both paved and natural trails. The variety of trees and plants are bountiful. Bring your camera! You'll walk approx 3/4 mile to the waterfall which you will be able to swim in the "pool" below. Life vests are available for the kids. Changing rooms are available at the waterfall, so pack your suit. We spent approximately 2.5 hours enjoying the place. Hours are 9-5, 7 days per week. Military discounts are available and coupons can be found in many of the rental car magazines. There is an optional transport that you can pay a small fee to go on if you unable, or do not want to, walk. Well worth seeing. Afterwards, there are beautiful beaches to enjoy for the rest of your day, not far from the park.

“Beautiful and easy hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

It was a great place to take my mother- in -law because it is beautiful. And, since it is paved it was safe for her to walk.

“Worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We loved the waterfall, the botanic gardens and the history. The valley has a great energy. Thursday late afternoon into evening had a nice farmer/craft market going with live music down by the entrance lawn. Find one of the coupons for half off admission
