Top Five Waterfalls On Oahu

 

Rainy days in Hawaii Nei, though they be but scarce, sprout beautiful rainbows and revive the island’s waterfalls. The next time it rains and pours, take a trip off-road into the rainforest terrain for adventure to these top five waterfalls.

WAIMEA FALLS

Located at the end of a paved trail, Waimea Falls is a 45-ft waterfall and 100% worth the park admission fee. With a changing room, life vests available, and a life guard on duty, you can feel free to bring the keiki for a refreshing dip in the freshwater pools.

JACKASS GINGER POOLS

The 1-mile loop off Nu’uanu’s Judd trail brings you to several 10-ft falls that cascade into a beautiful freshwater pool. With a rope swing already on site it’s perfect for a day full of relaxation and fun.

MAUNAWILI FALLS

A relatively easy hike along Maunawili stream through coffee, kukui nut, and monkey pod trees bring you to a deep swimming pool with various height boulders ranging from 10-ft to 60-ft to jump from. Partially paved, the hike offers exceptional views of the picturesque landscape.

MANOA FALLS

Nestled in the mountainside close to Waikiki, the popular landmark is a 1.6-mile hike on a very well taken care path. The 150-ft falls are truly a sight to behold, complemented by the scenery. The only con to these falls is the crowd. You will have to use some creative angles to keep your Instagram posts “stranger-free”.

LAIE FALLS

For those with ample time on their hands, head to the north shore and take a 7-mile hike through bamboo, guava, and pine to a quiet 15-ft waterfall pouring into a serene pool. Though this hike is long and requires a permit, it is well worth it and not crowded.

Hawaii is home to endless amounts of adventure and fun for the whole family. Rainy days and waterfalls are just two of the many gifts that the islands keep on giving.
