Adventures & tours

The eastern side of the island is one of the wettest places in the US, which also means it has some of the best waterfalls. At 400 metres, Hiilawe Falls is the highest waterfall and is typically viewed from afar. Getting close to these falls is quite difficult, and require a steep hike in and out of the valley.

Akaka Falls is "just" 129 metres tall, but no less impressive as it plunges over the edge of a lush green cliff. And Rainbow Falls (25 metres tall and just as wide) flows directly over a lava tube, often rewarding early morning visitors with dramatic rainbows in the mist.
