Waimea Valley

Attractions
  • A valley of beauty and history
  • It's kinda chilly!
  • Peacocks roam throughout the valley.
  • Ohia lehua blossom: Learn the story!
  • Ku‘ula stones, an ancient fishing shrine

Possessing great mana (spiritual power), Waimea Valley occupies a uniquely important place in Hawaiian lore and culture. Spending time there is a whole lot of fun, and you’ll also receive an education in history, botany and more.

The valley is now overseen by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, whose mission is a worthy one. It is home to marvelous gardens, two prominent heiau (Hawaiian temples) and a delightful waterfall and swimming hole reached via a pleasant ¾-mile walk. This is a place to linger, so please do so during your trip to the North Shore.

Highlights

  • Swim in the extra-refreshing pool!
  • Great place for families
  • The hike to the waterfalls is easy and pleasant.
Hours Open daily, 9 am - 5 pm
