a favorite swimming hole for us locals to cool off on a hot day. If your not a swimmer than dont bother. Its a slippery trail to the water.

Usually you can find locals jumping into this pond from the top of the bridge. There is only a narrow area jumping into this “pond”, so do not jump if you are not a local. It’s not worth the risk of becoming paralyzed. I am...More

Ching's pond is always a great place to swim unless it's been raining a lot. It can then be very dangerous. However, most of the time, it's a beautiful place to relax and swim in paradise. For those brave enough...and I would not suggest it...More

We stopped here on the way to Hana. It was certainly pretty but it was very hot near the pond (the breeze doesn’t get down there) and it was pretty crowded. If you like things off the beaten path, I would choose another stop.

We stopped here on the way back from Hana. So refreshing to have a quick dip. everyone was leaving (it was close to dinner) so we had the place to ourselves for a bit. Serene and stunning little spot, just off the road.

Unfortunately when we were passing by, there were no divers/jumpers. A very pleasant Pond! The traffic was not too busy, so we were able to get out and stretch our legs and take photos. Worth the stop.

Wife and I did a waterfall journey down the road to Hana and loved this stop. Right along the road but it's not about the waterfall here but the jumping into the water. There are two main spots on the rocks to try to jump...More
