The drive to Halawa was beautiful, along a winding road that for the last several miles was single lane. The effort, however, is rewarded by a quiet valley and beach. The scenery getting here is interesting (with some great lookouts) and the valley itself worth...More

If you think spending $75 for a short hike is reasonable, then this trip is for you. There are many beautiful waterfalls in Hawaii, but this it the only one that costs you a days wages for you and your friends to visit! This one...More

My wife and I had but a brief encounter with Hālawa Valley during our trip to Moloka‘i back in January 2000. We had driven the narrow road all the way to Moloka‘i’s far-eastern side and marveled over the lush, verdant valley below us. The valley...More
