Close to Hilo. We went in the morning and saw the rainbow. If you can, wait out the crowds from the bus, they usually leave after a couple of minutes. Boiling Pots is just down the road and you can do both in a short amount of time.

Located in the town of Hilo, it is easy to access, it is best in the morning when rainbows show. Handicap accessible

They say to arrive first thing in the morning if you want to see the rainbow--we missed it. Still beautiful. If you can, be sure to take the short hike up through the banyan trees. Takes you up to the top of the falls where you can walk out if you are brave enough.

The overlook is only a dozen yards or so from parking lot. I was there just after a rain downpour, and the falls were spectacular as they crashed down. Lush tropical surroundings add to the scenery. No fee to visit.

It is not far from Hilo. It was just 10 to 15 minutes drive. There was a cafe on the side of the road which was closed when we went there. The view of the rainbow falls was so refreshing and beautiful. There is not much road to clime up to look around. But you can see little bit farther from the top look down place.
