This was a great stop along the road to Hana. Quick walk up to a waterfall with a pool to swim in. Good to have water shoes but not an absolute. Water is cold but refreshing. Beautiful waterfall. There are picnic tables and a variety of cute animals hanging out- roosters, cats, mongoose. Bathrooms across the road.

An OK place to stop along the Hana Highway around milepost 23. If anything, it has a restroom right at the parking lot. Trails lead to some waterfalls that were nice, but there are bigger and prettier ones further down. If you are planning to do a picnic on your drive, this is probably one of the better spots.

This was a lovely place to stop on the road to Hana. The waterfalls are very pretty and you can get up close to the lower pool for some great photos.

My husband swam out to the waterfall. So cool! But the water is definitely freezing cold. When you dip your feet in the water, all the little fishes swarm to suck at your skin. Really fun to experience :)

A wonderful place to stop for a picnic on the Road to Hana. It was raining when we stopped here and some of the family braved the swim under the waterfall.

On the Road To Hana, be sure to stop at this little gem. It's a beautiful spot, with a lovely fall and nice ponds to swim in a nice, green area. There are lots of parking spaces, a bathroom and even some picnic tables. Even so, the place was pretty empty. I wonder, why this lovely place doesn't get more... More

One of the many stops on the road to Hana. Short hike, but a beautiful setting. You can hike to the top of the falls & jump (don't dive) in. Refreshing dip on a hot day. Good place to eat your picnic lunch.

We stopped here on the Road to Hana to use the bathrooms and go swimming in the falls. This is a good one to swim in. There are also picnic tables to eat lunch. Nice little park!

Stopped here on the road to Hana. Falls are really nice. There is a path to the top of the falls and you can see various waterfalls throughout the area. A must see for sure.
