Hawaii Waterfalls

The Hawaiian Islands are home to some of the world's most beautiful waterfalls. Below we've included links to several of the best waterfalls on the islands, most of which you can actually see without a tour or helicopter (all falls visible from the air only are noted).

On the list of falls below, we've included the height of the falls when possible, a rank (out of 5 stars), noted if it's a seasonal falls (dry in summer), and included any additional access information as necessary. If you discover a falls we've mistakenly left off this list, by all means please contact us and we'll make sure it's added. We've also broken the falls down individually by island if you'd prefer to view them that way: Maui Waterfalls, Kauai Waterfalls, and Big Island of Hawaii Waterfalls. Oahu waterfalls will be coming soon.
