Waterfalls in the Hawaiian Islands
Hawaii Waterfalls are one of many reasons why Hawaii is widely regarded as the “Pearl of the Pacific.”
Given its lush tropical climate, Hawaii has rainforests supporting a wide variety of them. In fact, one spot in Hawaii (the Mt Wai’ale’ale Crater on Kauai) is said to be the wettest place on earth with some 450 inches of rain a year!
While many Americans go to Hawaii as a way to beat the cold of Winter, it’s the Hawaii Waterfalls that provide the adventure as sort of the yin to the yang of resorts, beaches, watersports, shave ice, etc.
Hawaii’s diversity also extends to its collection of islands. Each island has its own character and collection of waterfalls.
Maui – dubbed the magic island – has heaps of waterfalls along the famed Hana Highway.
The adventurous can get off the beaten path on Molokai, where some of tallest sea cliffs in the world boast some of the tallest Hawaii Waterfalls.
While Oahu features plenty of things to keep a visitor busy, it too has something for the waterfall lover.
Kauai – the garden island – is home to the wettest spot on earth and sports countless waterfalls.
Finally, the volcanically active Big Island has its own collection of powerful waterfalls contrasting its fiery activity.
