If you're taking a drive along the Hamakua Coast, ʻAkaka Falls is a great stop to make. There's a short walk through beautiful tropical rainforest to get to the best viewing spot.
Chasing waterfalls is a favorite pass time for me. I believe it should be the same for you too! Nature’s awesome splendor!
Take a pleasant self-guided walk through lush tropical vegetation to scenic vista points overlooking the cascading Kahuna Falls and the free-falling Akaka Falls, which plunges 442 feet. Stop to pet the goats on the way there at Honomu Goat Dairy.
“Follow the map that you get when you enter the park to the steam vents, large crater and lava tube . ”
“Rainbow Falls is a waterfall located in Hilo, Hawaii. It is 80 ft tall and almost 100 ft in diameter. The falls are part of the Hawai'i State Parks. There is no fee to see the falls. At Rainbow Falls, the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below.”
“Bring a snack to enjoy when you make it down to the ocean. There are picnic tables at the bottom. ”
“Try the burritos from the lady on the corner. The sauces she adds upon request are divine! We always order her tamales and lilikoi juice too!”
