Arrive when the park opens to have more private time in the park. More crowds of people were arriving about 2 hours after the park opened. When we arrived, we were given a map and guide to the birds of the gardens. Surprisingly, my kids...More
It was an easy and beautiful hike. It’s paved and not slippery for those who may be concerned. I am 6 month pregnant and did it together with my husband and 6 yo. It took longer than others but we were at our own pace....More
This is a very crowded attraction, even on an off day (like the Monday when we went). Parking can be an issue.
It runs about $16 per person for a no-frills pass. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the falls and there is...More
Waimea Valley is a beautiful place to stroll in botanical gardens and enjoy a quiet morning. The plants are grouped by region and labeled for identification for the curious. We took our time, wandering through the gardens, listening to the river and enjoying the cool...More
What a lovely tropical contrast to the nearby beach wave action. The place feels peaceful and secluded despite its popularity. The walk to the waterfall is pleasant and in no way justifies the absurd overstatement of risks that can only be stated to please a...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 waterfall after you enter and hike for about 20-30 minutes and swim.
If you want to go to Waimea Bay off the main road, there is a parking area there. It does get busy during peak tourist season and you may need to wait.
