Great hike up into the valley, ultimately leading to a waterfall. Water was cold, but refreshing. Upon return we went to the beach. Only negative is parking is hell. Get here early!!

The grounds are beautiful (but then again so is most of O'ahu) and the hike is a walk on paved road. The "payoff" at the end is the view of Waimea Falls which while very nice, was a bit of a let down as the...More

We loved visiting Waimea Valley in the morning. As the sun gets higher in the sky, it may get warm. Walk at your own speed and take time to enjoy the diverse plantings around you. You'll be walking uphill but it isn't a tough walk....More

The price is a little high if you just walk in and out, but if you plan to swim or see the gardens, it is definitely worth it. Pretty flowers, birds chirping and pretty falls. Go in the morning to avoid the crowds. We did...More

Once you get past the entry, everyone seems to head straight for the Waterfall, which is nice but not that special. The garden, with its variety of plants and trees, and surrounding walks are so good and mostly overlooked by most visitors. So to get...More

Loved the walk to the falls and the swimming IN the falls! The lines and wait for the food was a bit long. If you plan on eating there include about an hour for that alone. The walk, short hike to the falls was amazing!...More

This is an amazing valley to explore. They have done a nice job in adding plants from different places in the world so it's a nice botanical garden. It costs $16 just to get in. There is a main road that goes up a gradual...More

Waimea Valley is a beautiful and stunning area and is an unspoilt environment. Considered a sacred place to native Hawaiians there is a fantastic waterfall a short hike away where you are allowed to swim. Awesome area.

The parking for Waimea Valley is several minutes driving in from the road. If you were to walk to the beach from the parking area, it may be a little far. Also, the parking is for paying Waimea Valley visitors. There is a... More

Aloha and thank you for your interest in Waimea Valley. The walk to the waterfall is 3/4 mile on a paved road. Take around 20-35 minutes. With young children I would plan on 40 to 45 minutes. The path is stroller friendly... More
