Small but nice waterfall and swimming hole (use caution) on road to Hana (MM19.5). Don't worry about parking right by the falls (there's hardly any). Drive a minute up the road and there is more parking, you can walk down to the bridge to see...More

Like others have stated, this is a perfect stop along the Road to Hana but be very careful of the walk from where you park back to the falls and bridge. Drivers are crazy insane. To get down to the falls you have a couple...More

This was one of the more beautiful waterfalls we stopped at on the Road to Hana. We parked past the falls and walked down the road to it. Being 7 months pregnant, I didn't dare "hike" down to the falls, but my husband did, while...More

Photogenic and worth the stop but stopping will be be a bit tricky. Nicknamed the 3 Bears, there is a poppa sized one, a mumma one and a baby bear. They are on the right as you cross one of the many narrow one-way bridges....More

The first time I did the Road to Hana I only admired these beauties from the road and I'm so glad this time around I made the trek to the bottom. If you are older or not physically fit the extremely short hike down might...More

The waterfall is located around milepost 19 on the Hana Highway. Normally is supposed to be three separate falls. However, it rained heavily the morning we made the drive there and it turned into one roaring waterfall. Still was a pretty site. There is no...More

The parking was just around the corner from the falls (which weren't really visable from the road). The road down to the bridge is a dangerous walk due to cars passing. As you walk from the parking to the falls you are supposed to climb...More
