This was a spur of the moment side excursion on a drive around Oahu with a group of ladies. It is an easy walk to the falls if you have on the right footwear. Flip flops or strappy sandals might prove a bit challenging. The...More

This is a must do for tourists. We really enjoyed this swim and the walk through the gardens as well. The waterfall is apparently strongest in spring which is when we were there but in the driest season, it decreases to a trickle. When you...More

Be aware that there is an admission fee ($16.00/adult & $12.00/senior) to enter the botanical gardens and walk to the falls. The wide path is paved and not strenuous at all. You should bring along your swimwear as you can swim in the waterfall area...More

This natural waterfall coupled with the botanical gardens is beautiful. This is not a hiking trail, it is a paved path and a reasonably easy walk. Worth the money, my dad is 82, he used the shuttle up and down, but still enjoyed the visit....More

Because I didn’t fully research these falls ahead of time, I was surprised to learn it was part of an arboretum you must pay to enter. The “hike” is paved and ends at the falls. Free life jackets are provided if you wish to swim....More

The walk to the waterfall is beautiful as it is also a botanical garden. There are several meandering paths. The waterfalls was colder than usual due to recent rains and the water was murky but still well worth it. There are lifeguards and life vests...More

We loved visiting Waimea Waterfall. The parking was easy, the paved path made for an easy stroll, the waterfall was beautiful and getting to swim in the pool was special. The water was chilly but not awful. Consider wearing water shoes as there are rocks.
