At the end of the road to Hana

Beautiful swimming hole and perfect for a nice break after making it to and past Hana. Expensive parking.

These beautiful cascading pools are only about 10 miles on from Hana. This is a short loop walk from the Visitors Centre. At the sea end there are beautiful views of the ocean and black rocks of the Coast. Looking up the Gulch the pools are quite big, but very pretty and probably very busy. A great place to come...

It is not true that they are sacred. People just say that. Nice to get get in the water here. It can be dangerous if it has been raining a lot.

We did the road to Hana and then went the further distance to Ohe'o. We were disappointed to see the pools closed, but were able to do a great hike and take in the scenery. Anyone driving that far should continue to circle the island. Rough road for the next 10 miles afterward, but well worth it for the views.... More

Loved the hike and scenery, but we only found out when we arrived that swimming was closed. The pools are gorgeous, but would have been better if I were in them.

The circular walk to the pools from the NPS visitors centre is about 0.5 miles long and quite easy going although not suitable for wheelchairs. Going anticlockwise you first arrive where the river meets the ocean. We saw waves breaking onto rocks, then the path follows the stream for a short distance uphill with overlooks to the pools and waterfalls.... More

Make sure you have good water shoes, a bathing suit & towel. Hike down to the pools for beautiful views of the pools running down to the ocean. You can swim in them & then get out and walk over rocks to get into the next pool. The pools are referred to as the Seven Sacred Pools but nothing Sacred... More

Simply a serene place to find yourself in. Worth the drive. It is so beautiful and since it was quite late when we visited it was not crowded at all. So good for the Soul.

While the views were nice, we found the crowds to be more than we had bargained for. Numerous tour buses complicate matters, making the excursion almost too busy to be appreciated. We arrived at around 1 on a Thursday, so I would recommend either staying in Hana one night and going first thing in the morning, or perhaps waiting until... More

We visit monthly during the summer - this visit was 100 year anniversary of national parks - there was entertainment, dancers, artist, cultural specialists. Rain sun and rainbowszz
