So many vibrant flowers. The trail is completely paved and very easy. It's a really beautiful walk. The waterfall...less exciting.

This is a great place if you love nature and plants. It's a small nice stroll to the Falls. The Falls were smaller than I expected. You must wear a life jacket to go swim.

Nice leisurely walk thru beautiful gardens and variety of trees. Walk culminates at waterfall, with opportunity to swim (weather permitting). Tram available for additional fee for those who don’t want to walk (up and/or back).

The valley is absolutely gorgeous. A great combination of water and plants. It’s a gorgeous drive along the coast and through the valley.

A small entrance fee is required before entering the valley, where you'll find a paved track that leads you to the waterfall, alternatively you can pay an additional fee for a bus that will drop you off near the falls. Along the way you'll find...More

If you are going here to see a fantastic waterfall you are going to be disappointed. Although you can swim beneath it with a life jacket it isn't impressive at all. I'm sure the gardens are nice when the flowers are in full bloom but...More

There is a charm to this place but the waterfall out of the rainy season was disappointing. They should tell you this. We enjoyed the flowers, birds and the serenity but would not have been too disappointed if we hadn't come here. The lily pond...More

The parking for Waimea Valley is several minutes driving in from the road. If you were to walk to the beach from the parking area, it may be a little far. Also, the parking is for paying Waimea Valley visitors. There is a... More

Aloha and thank you for your interest in Waimea Valley. The walk to the waterfall is 3/4 mile on a paved road. Take around 20-35 minutes. With young children I would plan on 40 to 45 minutes. The path is stroller friendly... More
