This was a highlight on our road to Hana. You park at the state park paying a fee. You'll take a short hike to the Pools. It is a spectacular view. You will be in awe!!

Great hike with amazing views, make sure you talk to the park staff before going in the water as there are many signs and stories of touristas and locals alike being dragged down the cliffs from flash floods. Breathtakingly beautiful, but don't let yourself become the next warning sign.

When you drive the crazy road to Hana (crazy because of all of the bad, bad drivers you meet head on) and on past.. you later get to the National Park and it's $20 to get in but the pools are closed permanently. The government says that it is for your safety but it is really because they use any... More

If you plan on taking the Road to Hana the obvious destination are the Seven Sacred Pools. Make sure to have towels, drinking water & an extra pair comfortable shoes. It is wet & slippery. And the day we went there were a ton of tourists. These pools were sacred to the ancients because it was a source of clean... More

With lovely walks in this area, the Seven Sacred Pools should be high on any list of things to do in this region of Maui. It is forbidden to swim in the pools, for safety reasons, but they are well worth a viewing anyway. Whilst this is a pay attraction, we caught it on a "Fee Free Day", so not... More

Even though the island had two full days of rain and we were unable to swim in the pools our visit was well worth the drive. We hiked the two miles uphill to the falls through the bamboo forest and it was absolutely breathtaking. Highly recommend for the waterfall alone. Can't wait to come back again!

Many things to see and beautiful for sure. Points to note: - no swimming allowed in the pools themselves - getting splashed at the top waterfall is allowed - bamboo forest sounds like a yacht club at night with a clinking and clacking that is so calming - bring a water bottle, bathing suit and towel - park staff real...

We stopped here on our drive past Hana. It was very accessible from the road. The walk to the pools viewing area is very easy and maybe a half mile round-trip. It look like everyone else was going up a ways and they were wearing swimming suits. I can only assume you must be able to wait in the pools... More

we headed for Hana with the plan to see the 7 sacred pools. it is a hike so be prepared. the only thing is sometimes it is the 7 sacred mud holes... but the scenery is awesome and it is an all day trip so pack lunch and drinks. when the pools are full, you can get wet there.

Easy, short hike from the visitor's center and fantastic views. Go earlier in the day if possible to get great pictures without too many people fighting for the same views. Note that the pools have been closed to swimming lately.
