This was a really relaxing place to visit. The wide range of plant species from all over the world were fascinating to explore, as was the Hawaiian village. Of course most people go for the waterfall which was pretty and nice to swim in, but...More

This is a sacred place of great natural beauty, so I was shocked to see not just the unhealthy food, but the appalling wastage of plastic and paper for serving, stirring, even for drinking water. Do you really need to give adults plastic straws? Can't...More

A quiet refuge from the activities of Oahu. Stroll through the park's trails and gain great historical perspective and botanical information on the islands of the Pacific. Makes you appreciate the ancient life style and the lush tropical paradise that once covered all the islands.

I was a little hesitant booking an entire excursion based on just a swim in a waterfall, and it ended up being a trip highlight. The walk to the waterfalls was beautiful and not overly strenuous despite being a very hot day. Facilities were well...More

This is a nice park, but don't bother going in the summer months, there is just a trickle of water on the falls. The water - lagoon below is murky water and dirty looking, did not go in. I would recommend going in the winter...More

The answer to rental or camping in the park of Waimea is no. You can stay at the beach and camp. Suggest to go online and look for rentals of tents in Oahu Hawaii. Many people were staying at camp sites up in the North... More
