The gardens that line the path to the Falls are lovely and something is always in bloom! The pool itself requires you to wade in across slippery rocks, so take your time to get in. Bring your own towel, good idea to bring a change...More

If you're going just for the waterfall, you'll probably be disappointed. I've been here many times, and the people that enjoy it the most are plant lovers - in fact, I wandered around for over 3 hours with one group of friends, exploring every path...More

Great walk thru amazing grounds. The water fall is very nice. They have free life jackets so you can go swimming at the waterfall and changing rooms also.

Beautiful gardens with lots of flowers. Lots of shaded walking paths. The waterfall was brown as well as the pool below it. Not sure if that is always the case or not. Still worth a peaceful walk.

Visiting Waimea Valley is like visiting a church. It feels like I walk through a portal when I enter, and the time spent there is sacred. Not even the gentle whirr of the wind turbines detracts from the experience (thank God!) We always arrive around...More

** I visited in January of 2016. This place is gorgeous! I do recommend taking the shuttle to the falls and then walking back! Worth the few extra dollars! I did not swim in the falls although there were plenty of people who did! I...More

You must buy tickets. Yes, that should be ample time. You can swim in the lagoon under the falls, too, though life jackets are required (and provided).
