I came upon this lovely gem while driving to the North Shore from Honolulu. Stunningly beautiful greenery & flowers that are breathtaking. A lovely waterfall awaits you after a short hike.

The landscape, fauna and flora was absolutely beautiful. Staff were really helpful and informative. We arrived early in the day so were fortunate enough to have the waterfall to ourselves for an hour or so which was perfect! Definitely recommend visiting.

We went to Oahu to see sites rather than the beach. This turned out to be an amazing places with plants I'd never seen or heard of and a beautiful valley and waterfall at the top. Site of Jurassic Park films. Well worth the tour.

Beautful and historic botanical garden leading to a waterfall. Then you can put on a life vest and swin n the cold water pool at the base os the waterfall. Lots of free range chickens to keep watch on your shoes and glasses while you swim.

We were just driving and happened to see the sign for Waimea Valley and decided to stop in and see what it was. It is a nice walk to a beautiful waterfall. There are a lot of things to see. Don't miss this stop!

Waimea Bay is so beautiful with a few restaurants and a small shopping center. Waimea Falls and Botanical Garden was perfect. once you enter the park you can take a quick shuttle to the falls or walk I believe it was under a mile to walk. The shuttle was a few dollars. We walked to the falls and took a... More

Waimea Valley is a great place to visit if you are heading up the North Shore. The parking is free if you are visiting the falls. It is located opposite Waimea Bay down a fairly long driveway. Once you are at the valley, there is a small cafe and shop, you can then choose to walk through the valley to... More
