This was a nice stop on the north shore. It was informative and was a beautiful walk through the gardens. Take enough water. We ran out and couldn’t find a place to refill. Worth the walk.

Absolutely beautiful place to walk through and see the lush fauna that grow in Hawaii. So much information about the history of the Hawaiian people, and really amazing gardens. Of course we had to swim in the waterfall, and the lifeguards were very helpful. So...More

It was an easy and beautiful hike. It’s paved and not slippery for those who may be concerned. I am 6 month pregnant and did it together with my husband and 6 yo. It took longer than others but we were at our own pace....More

We went on a weekday and it was not very crowded and had a very peaceful walk up to the waterfalls remember to bring your bathing suit so you can jump in the lagoon at the falls

This is a very crowded attraction, even on an off day (like the Monday when we went). Parking can be an issue. It runs about $16 per person for a no-frills pass. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the falls and there is...More

Waimea Valley is a beautiful place to stroll in botanical gardens and enjoy a quiet morning. The plants are grouped by region and labeled for identification for the curious. We took our time, wandering through the gardens, listening to the river and enjoying the cool...More

What a lovely tropical contrast to the nearby beach wave action. The place feels peaceful and secluded despite its popularity. The walk to the waterfall is pleasant and in no way justifies the absurd overstatement of risks that can only be stated to please a...More
