Waimea Falls

Waimea Falls, Oahu

This waterfall (view panorama) is located in Waimea Valley on Oahu’s North Shore, within a park that offers a variety of visitor attractions and activities, such as hula and other cultural demonstrations, musical performances, etc. So to access Waimea Falls, one has to pay an admission fee to get into the park.

Waimea Falls (also known as Waihi Falls) drops 45 feet (13,7 m) into a pool. Swimming is allowed in the pool inbetween performances in which professional cliff divers showcase their skills. The waterfall is accessible via a short, paved trail (about one mile one way). A changing room and a lifeguard are at the pool.

CAUTION: As with all freshwater streams and waterfalls in Hawaii, Leptospirosis bacteria may be present in the water. Do not drink the water and keep water out of open wounds (including small scratches) and eyes.

I have been here a few times and seen the cliff divers show its so good and the gardens are huge, its easy to walk around but is quite a distance from the entrance to the falls. We spent most of the day here it has a cafe to eat lunch which was ok and look out for the canonball tree and spikey palms. A lovely day out well worth it.
